I am giving a big presentation today for work entitled “Cultivating resiliency as leaders in medicine” as part of a day-long internal leadership retreat. Something like 200-300 physicians and administrators within our healthcare system are invited, and it’s the first live event for most of us in forever. Ahhh! Thankfully, a) it is based on a talk I’ve essentially given twice before, so I’ve had lots of practice and b) I will be doing it jointly with a colleague.
It has occupied a lot of brain space over the last ~2 weeks and from an objective standpoint, it’s a great career opportunity and I am grateful to have been asked to do it.
I also can’t wait for it to be over 🙂
It has been an incredibly busy past 2 weeks (patients, two full days of residency interviews, and about 38573857 meetings in addition to prepping this talk), but I’m really happy with the way things have gone. I feel like I really did take things one day at a time instead of getting overwhelmed.
THINGS I HAVE NOT DONE BECAUSE I HAD TO PRIORITIZE WORK:
Buy any Hanukkah presents for the kids
Buy the kids pants for our trip — however our nanny saved the day and took them to Target yesterday! (Cameron also got a great haircut – he looks so grown up!)
Make 2 pies for Thanksgiving. Either going to do tonight + freeze, or (more likely) get up super early on Thanksgiving day and do them.
Figured out insurance stuff for our new house. Gulp.
Figured out specific plans for our NC trip (we leave tomorrow AM!). Guess we will be kind of taking it day by day. I think it will be okay – we’re only there ~4.5 days anyway and the main goal is to see my parents, sister, and niece!
Figure out ANYTHING for a mini-Hanukkah brunch party we are having next Saturday at our house. However, I am planning to basically order everything from a local deli and this local kosher supermarket (apparently famous for their Hanukkah doughnuts!), and I can figure that out while we are in NC.
Also, want to hear something crazy? I received both day camp signup info AND the overnight camp packing list in my email this week (um 14 pairs of shorts!? what!?).
Time is flying. Trying not to miss it!
But you can think of me and my giant sigh of relief at approximately 3 pm today!
