Do you ever wonder why it’s so hard to stop overworking? You’re smart. You’re a doctor. You should be able to figure this out. Right? You know the way to stop overworking is to work less. Why can’t you (or most other doctors) seem to do this simple thing?
I’ll tell you why. It’s not because you’re a doctor. It’s not because your patients are too demanding. It’s not because your boss is unreasonable.
It’s because of your brain.
The problem—and the solution—lie in your thinking about work.
The reason this is such good news is that once you understand why you are the one responsible for overworking, you can change your thinking and stop working more than you want to.
