Therapists must be highly driven and dedicated to overcome the competition and high standards to get accepted into graduate school and endure the challenges of the rigorous coursework.
The demand doesn't let off as we are thrown into clinical practice and all things being an employee, a marketer, a time manager, an expert biller, a mentee, a master documenter, etc.
But it is inevitable. We all want to take our foot off the gas pedal at some point.
The target of that drive and dedication was never productivity or busyness. The target was sense of self. And making a meaningful impact on the well being of others.
Those are your key performance indicators. Nurture them fully.
Live. Feel. Think. DIFFERENTLY.
