To be better...

5 ways to become better - Atul Gawande

From his book "Better" here are 5 ways to become a "positive deviant" and better doctor:

1. Ask an unscripted question - in other words take a human interest in the often inhumane world of medicine.

2. Don't complain" - in other words suck it up and try and keep cheerful.

3. Count something - audit/research - take an interest in the science no matter how rough and ready.

4. Write something - explain your findings/thoughts to yourself and others.

5. Change - adopt new techniques. Avoid dogma. Then assess the change.
