Super quick story today.
When I was in medical school, we were given a script for talking to patients about drug use. The first question was: "Do you use illicit drugs?" As part of our training, we individually role-played scenarios with patient-actors. After a session in which 10 of us did a drug talk, the patient-actor came out and said,"What the hell are illicit drugs and why are all of you asking that question?!"
We told him about the drug talk script we were following. He said, "A script? I'm the actor. You guys are training to work with patients. Please just talk to me like a regular person and BE YOURSELVES!"
What great advice that was! Sometimes when we've done all the training and book-learning, we regurgitate what we've absorbed, and it just doesn't feel right. Many times that missing piece isn't more knowledge, it's You!
We are not meant to be carbon copies. Take what you know & make it your own.
It will resonate! You got this!
