Happy New Year! A new year can feel like a new beginning at home, at work, and in all aspects of life. Here are five inspirational quotes to help you get 2018 off to a great start.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. —C.S. Lewis
What are your professional goals? Setting and achieving meaningful career goals provides three essential career nutrients: increased job satisfaction, higher self-esteem, and improved quality of life.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Everyone has bad days, but bad days don’t have to be contagious. No matter how you feel inside, deliberately display a helpful, respectful attitude on the outside, and maintain that attitude throughout the conversation.
Although this benefits others, it will benefit you, as well. Positive thinking and a good attitude help better your psychological well-being and help you cope better under stressful situations at work. If you display a good attitude, your coworkers will as well, making it easier to communicate and get along in the workplace.
I am enthusiastic about the future. You can be too. You are living in the most exciting period of time in history. —Richard G. Scott
Technology in healthcare is evolving at a rapid rate. That results in better and more accessible treatment, improved care and efficiency, and improvements in disease control and healthcare overall. For patients, this can do little things like reduce time in the waiting room, and big things like using genetic testing to enable chemotherapy to attack cancer cells.
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. —Oprah Winfrey
Do you want a fresh start at your current job? It is possible, especially if you keep a few important tips in mind. Reflect on what might be bothering you, motivate yourself based on what brings you satisfaction, be open-minded, and move on from mistakes.
In some cases, a fresh start may mean changing jobs or even changing careers. The ability to perform work that is aligned with your mission and values in an organization that encourages you to be your best self can reignite your passion, compassion, humor, and style.
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. —Maya Angelou
For healthcare workers, work can become routine. However, it’s not routine to patients: it may be overwhelming, frightening, and intimidating. In that context, kindness can make the entire experience easier for the patient. Think about being kind first and clinical second.
Kindness and compassion can be difficult to define, but it may be helpful to keep three essential elements in mind when working to practice compassion: recognizing that the patient is suffering, emotional resonance (the sense of connection with a patient), and actually moving to address the suffering.
