what is it about us that makes us procrastinate? from wikipedia:

isn’t it amazing when you finish a task? i am horrible about laundry. ideally i like to do it once a week, preferably on sunday morning before anyone wakes up. i ended up doing it yesterday – a week and a half’s worth. maybe it might help to get in-unit laundry.
did my exit interviews today. what’s next you ask? first hospitalist. need to get my feet wet. i read a great article about how a physician develops from a novice => advanced beginner => competent => proficient => expert => master. here’s the link: Clinical Teaching.
Novice physician: rule driven, analytic reasoning
Advanced beginner physician: sorts relevance, pattern recognition
Competent physician: responsible, sees the big picture
Proficient physician: intuitive, can live with ambiguity
Expert physician: aligns thoughts, feelings and action; clever
Master physician: beyond the big picture; reflects in, on, and for action
I know a few master physician. It’s the ones that can smell schizophrenia from the doorway. Or with one wave of a stethescope can prevent an admission and wasteful dollars being spent. Like the horse-whisperer or something.
I think I’m at competent. We’ll see.
