A Bit of Serious Advice  

If you haven't already done so, read Atul Gawande's book Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance. Now. Really. Read it now. Buy it, borrow it from the library, whatever it takes. Read it. It will make you a better person.

Yes. The only reason I haven't lent it to half the people I've seen recently is that the first person I lent it to (who shall remain nameless but icon-ized) is being slow getting to it.

Gawande is a terrific journalist and thinker, as well as doctor. I highly recommend his important New Yorker piece of a couple of months ago I blogged about here, with link, of course.

Also, recently, this.

Plenty more from him here.
