Over the past few weeks I have had the privilege to learn from many people with varied backgrounds and perspectives. Some people I learned from formally, while others it was more of an informal process. Times and locations changed, and the topics covered everything from computer charting techniques to leadership tips from an executive nurse leader. It is wonderful. What has been even better, though, is that I am continuously surrounded by brilliant people; they teach me even without realizing it. They share their time with me, and simply being with them makes me think differently.
Chances are, there are brilliant folks around you, as well. Are you rubbing shoulders with them, gleaning from their thoughts and ideas, sharing your own and hearing their responses and questions? Surround yourself with those people. They’ll make you better.
