Get in Front of It

I had a follow up with a patient yesterday who I’ve seen for a few years. Often when he comes in he is exhausted and burnt out. He owns his business with his wife and they work tirelessly until all of a sudden he realizes he needs his battery recharged.

This time was different however–he didn’t come in completely drained. He said he decided that if something comes up, he ought to deal with it right away. He said, “My sleep was off for a week. Usually I would just power through and ignore it for months but I thought no I’m going to come in and take care of it. I need to get ‘in front of it’.

I loved this comment. It reminded me of a wave –in order to surf you need to swim and get on top and in front of the wave in order to cruise in. The alternative is missing the wave altogether or having it crash all over you.

You train, learn and grow. 

Get in front of it!
