The Lonely Life

Most modern warriors walk alone…

The following comment by Jim on a previous post shares my feelings about how lonely it can feel if you don’t have other 8pm Warriors to share the journey:

“I agree with you, but will admit that I do miss the steady diet of being around people who are committed to their dreams…”

It’s one of the reasons I started this blog and the Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin 8pm Warrior communities.  Despite being very blessed with amazing business partners in some of my ventures, many times I still feel lonely.

Do you?

Take a minute and join us on one of the forums, introduce yourself, tell your story, and don’t be lonely.  Together we can prove that you’re not alone.

Have a great night,

Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle

During my Monday morning reading, I came across the following quote:

“Be kind.  Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

– Plato

I’ll confess that for some odd reason, it gives me comfort.  If true, this ancient quote declares that I’m not alone!  And, neither are you… 

Literally hundreds of us will fight similar battles against deadlines, shortages, budgets, staff issues, self doubt, and so much more.  And from time to time, we’ll need each other to get through it. 

It’s a great reminder why we started the Clear Medical Network and the many associated peer support groups on Linkedin and Facebook.  We all need someone to lean on.

If we can help, lean on us…

A Salute to the 8pm Warriors Among Us

 

Still in the office at 8pm?

Unless your workday begins at noon, that’s a sure sign you’re probably working on something important.  It’s probably also a good sign sign that the project is probably in great hands.

While it’s probably not healthy to work in the office 8 to 8 every day, sometimes duty calls…and it’s the special people that answer.

Whether it be the deadline for that new building project finance package, the EMR implementation that has go-live around the corner, the new administrator helping to rally the staff on the NOC and PM shifts, or the hundreds of other scenarios we see at Clear Medical Solutions…it is important that someone takes the ball and runs with it.

You know who you are, and thanks for giving it everything you got when something important is on the line.  I’ve taken part in quite a few “after hours” adventures, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Thanks for being great, and if you ever need help we’ll be “8pm Warriors” right with you. 

 

Special thanks to our agents at our Clear Medical Agency division.  I am continually amazed and inspired at what you accomplish long after most have gone home for the day.  Keep up the great work, you’re starting to make a huge difference in the lives of the consultants, nurses, therapists, and hospital leaders you work with.
