1. Are you helping people?
Ultimately that’s what we do.. I remember my admissions interview to school when they asked,” why do you want to be so and so..” I want to help people is what I said. I think that’s the most common answer. Isn’t that really why we do what we do?…sometimes we get so bogged down with computers, dictating, billing and administration we forget. Now as a clinician you may not be working code 99’s all day and saving lives all the time. You might be suturing, treating colds, coughs and sore throats.. but are you helping people? And are you satisfied with that?
