Doctors, Stop Your Whining

An anonymous poster asks those in healthcare who are whining to stop and think about how they can actually impact change

September 30, 2022

This is going to be a light commentary about what I see taking place in the physician circles online. I honestly see a lot of talk, and a lot of venting. I see people that complain nonstop.

It gets a little bit annoying and to see this happening, especially since I’ve noticed that my colleagues are following the people who complain like sheep.

That’s how broken our field is, that we don’t even discern between actionable leaders that create something useful for us, as a profession, that can actually impact change.

I personally want to see more action, less complaining.

Stop complaining, get up, and do something to make things different.

Stop your whining and you’re complaining, especially on social media, and stop making us look bad.

Most of us have sacrificed a lot, and have spent many of our years and hard earned money to be where we are today.

Does it work to whine?

No, I don’t think that it does.

I think there are many issues with how Medicine is run today.

But will we change anything by whining about it nonstop?

Absolutely not.

Will anything change if we continue to follow the whiners who are out there, constantly writing about what needs to change?

Absolutely not.

Let’s find ways to actually take actionable steps to making a difference, and let’s be proud of who we are: the doctors who are healing the world today!
