“An obscure life offers more opportunities for the nurture of a loftier type of character.”

Standard

This unusual quote set me to ponder, is that true. Scanning back over life experiences and the thousands of folks I’ve come in contact with I’m inclined to agree. What  do you think?

  1. Absolutely. When I became a physician, my professors said they expected to hear “great things” about me. Although they certainly meant this as a compliment, I learned over time to become Dr. Anonymous. It allowed me to focus on my patient’s needs without distractions and the need to satisfy expectations from others in my profession. This made my career more fulfilling AND reduced quite a bit of stress associated with being a physician.

    • Yes, I respect that. I’m sure all your patients are happy for your choice.
      I had a similar experience teaching – if you become a head teacher or such you cease to personally impact the life of your pupils. There’s no interaction.
