Stephanie - this is a beautifully written and brave response to a situation that can be challenging. It is true that when we write, tweet,or speak about issues that are important or personal, that what we share can trigger emotions in others. Some will be positive and others may not be. But either way, the point is the conversation, the shared lessons and a broader experience across the community. An if someone elects not to participate in that sharing, ultimately that is their choice. Thanks for sharing this and for all that you do. Joan

Excellent post Rebel. It is wonderful to want to help others and to go the extra mile BUT, if you do not take care of yourself first, you will not have any energy to give to others. Setting boundaries is an excellent start. The next step is to establish metrics for the value of the time and effort you give to others based on measurable benefits. Then, when you give the extra effort, everyone can measure the results and your gift is appreciated all the more.

Great analogy Eden. Too often people are in such a hurry to see results that they forget that it takes some time to lay a solid foundation first. When that happens, the system or company can find it self on very shaky ground and never reach its full potential.

Rebel - Great points. Here is another one that is important to remember. When leading change, make sure that key stakeholders and influencers suport the new direction you are heading in. Keep them in a continuous information loop. Otherwise, when you are rocking the boat, you just might get tossed and they won't be there to throw you a life preserver.

Puting the health back into our healthcare system will require a lot more than just cutting costs. Until we change the way we look at healthcare from both the provider's perspective and the patient's, we will continue to struggle. New breakthroughs in IT and diagnostics can make a big impact on the change to come. But in the end, we as healthcare consumers will also need to change our behaviors too.
