ICYMI – In Case You Missed It – May 2016 – for Physicians and Physician Leaders

“Rather than going into all of this thinking, I can be anything I want to be, the approach you’re taking is I don’t know yet what I can become. You don’t know where any of this might take you; it’s not possible to know that now. But what you learn about yourself and what excites you won’t be abstract; it will be very concrete knowledge born of practical experience. Over time, you open up paths that you could not have imagined, out of which emerge options that you never would have seen before.

Although we think that taking a rejuvenating weekend walk in the woods is how we reconnect with the world and with ourselves, this attitude leads us to greater disconnection from both. We need to think of our weekday life differently. The Way isn’t something we reach while walking in the woods on the weekend. It’s something we bring about actively through our daily interactions.” – The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us About the Good Life

May 2014 – An important month for me.

It was my last meeting as  TPMG Board Member. It provided an opportunity to reflect on and share what I learned over the past 9 years with Board members and the hundreds of doctors at the Kaiser Permanente Roseville medical center and offices. I also learned what my CEO Robert Pearl and TPMG Board Chair and my Physician in Chief Chris Palkowski thought of me.
