Staying Ahead of the Power Curve
SOMO PEOPLE MARK THE BEGINNING OF A NEW YEAR in September when the kids (or the academics) go back to school. Others look at the calendar and celebrate the New Year as the ball drops in Times Square. Still others use different calendars to mark the passage of time. Regardless of when the year starts for you, the mid-winter break is a good time to take stock of where you are, both personally and professionally. As you prepare to unfold the calendar for 2007 you might pause to think about where your practice will take you in the next year. Whoever said "life is a journey, not a destination" was certainly right when it comes to nursing practice. To make the most of the journey, we need to be open to new experiences and opportunities. You never know what door might open when you choose to turn a key. I am not one to make New Year's resolutions, but I am promising to try to live by this motto, especially as I set off on a six month sabbatical from my day job at the University where I teach. It is my plan to take the time to think about the journey that is my neonatal practice and to explore some new roads along the way.
