3 Mantras to Success
Dr Shalini Pradhan
1. Multi Tasking.
“Due to their multitasking skills and ability to thrive in adversity, all future wars should be fought by women” -Anon
Men are better at concentrating at one task whereas women can manage a multitude of tasks simultaneously. This fact being hard weird in the woman’s DNA is one that we can capitalize on as dentists. Running a clinic, treating patients, managing the house, kids and hearth, all actions happen in parallel and women are masters of this. Let us not forget this scientifically proven fact.
2. Innovative thinking.
“This is the nature of the genius to grasp the knowable even when no one recognizes it.”
Most difficult thing to do! Out of the box thinking! But it is essential element for an interesting and fulfilling life.
3. A sense of fun.
“I can imagine no more comfortable frame of mind for the conduct of life than a humorous resignation.” -W Somerset Maugham
Dentistry is fun, but can be tedius at the same time. A fun filled approach and a few laughs along the path make the journey more interesting.
