June 16, 2021

Many physicians say that they walk around with a sense that things should be different than they are. They describe this as a feeling of vague unease that accompanies them throughout the day. They may feel generally satisfied with work, life, or family, but they feel as though something isn’t quite right. However, if you want to change something in your life, you must first identify what it is that needs work and how exactly you need to change it. So, in this episode, Kathy will be sharing actionable items you can use to reach the goals or results that you want in your life.
