Happy Monday Morning!
I have been very fortunate to have great health, I have rarely been to the doctor in my life. I was speaking to somebody recently about his advice of getting a physical on a regular basis. I am at an age where that is probably wise. He spoke of his own reluctance to get regular checkups & the impact that cancer had on his health. It could have been diagnosed much earlier in his life if he had been going for regular check-ups.
For all of our complaints, we have a truly amazing health care system & well caring staff. I was at The University of Saskatchewan Medical school, speaking to 4th year residents about soft skills and managing their career. They are entering into a much different world than the doctors that are training them.
My first slide was a picture of the founders of Google. My first comment was that they are entering a new era as doctors where patients will now arrive in their office with both the symptoms & what they think are the solutions. This is both a gift & a challenge, in a world where WebMD is now most peoples first place to go when they have health issues. There are many benefits to this & increasingly more risks.
We live in the age of the “instant expert” who needs 10,000 hours & many years of training when you have Google? Funny enough I was speaking with a new client and I asked her how she heard of us. She shared “the old way, I Googled you”.
Google is a fantastic tool but when it comes to your career and health, it’s always a great idea to talk with the experts. Sophisticated tools & expertise are required to discover the best answers. Self-diagnoses in a health issue can seriously raise your health risks, so can a career self-diagnosis.
