Burnout can be an isolating feeling—even though you aren’t alone. Many physicians experience burnout, struggling to accept that the profession they once loved is now a psychological burden. Based on your score, you’ve been thinking a lot about starting a new venture, perhaps so you can stop practicing medicine altogether.
Don’t give up on your practice just yet. When we’re stuck, it’s difficult to imagine a way out of the rut that doesn’t involve walking away and starting over. But, it’s possible that the key to changing your mindset, and giving you a fresh perspective on your medical career is an entrepreneurial venture. This new journey will allow you to spend time outside of your practice, expand other areas of your mind, and nurture other important interests that keep life engaging and new.
However, it’s likely the entrepreneurial life is an idea that is still in its nascent stages for you. It has your attention, but you aren’t sure where to start or how. Both of those problems are easily solvable with the right help! Dr. John Shufeldt has endured more failed businesses than most people start. He’s also helmed massively successful enterprises that were valued at $100 million and employed over 1,000 people at the height of their success—all while staying more engaged and enthusiastic about medicine than ever.
Dr. Shufeldt’s book, Entrepreneur Rx contains the motivational insights and practice guidance you need to get serious about entrepreneurship. With the help of Dr. Shufeldt’s expertise, you can identify what needs to be done to take that first step. Take an inventory of your current skill set and personality traits. Do you like jumping around from project to project? Do you consider yourself a leader? Are you data-driven? Are you afraid of failure? Do you embrace ambiguity? Are you willing to sacrifice personal time, family time, and social time to make this dream real? Getting clear on whether or not you have what it takes and are willing to do what is necessary to become a successful entrepreneur will give you direction for what comes next on your journey. Just remember, whenever you’re ready to start, you aren’t walking this path alone.
