That's right, I got to interview Dr. Jimmy Turner THE Physician Philosopher
We talked about how the path physicians take can enhance 'arrival fallacy' that idea that: 'once I hit that next goal, then I'll finally have what I want.'
He shared with me how he and his team support physicians in all areas of their lives and the power of having an unbiased third party to share what you're going through without fear of judgement or professional backlash.
Dr. Turner shared with me a real life example of how a physician came to him with the belief "I'm a bad parent" and how he reframed that perspective so they could let go of that false belief.

I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, but I have to say Dr. Gharbi has created an incredibly slick, easy to use, intuitive software for doctors.
Why did he do this? Because he's a doctor and was sick of using tired old clunky software so he did something about it and created the best Canadian EMR "Arya EHR".
The only electronic health records software in Canada created by doctors for doctors.
As he puts it, "bad software is like a death of a thousand cuts."
Dr. Gharbi took me on a walkthrough of the software during his masterclass episode and it is legit!
To take a look at the software, be sure to head on over to https://www.aryaehr.com/ to schedule a demo or just flat-out buy it.
