  • 💥"Remember, perfect is the enemy of good.”💥
.
One of my IR mentors used to say this, but I never really asked what it meant. Fast forward to my 1st year as an attending. I was performing a fistulagram, which is a study of a dialysis pt's AV fistula. They come to us when there is a problem somewhere in the AV circuit. The vast majority will require balloon angioplasty and some will need a stent. This was routine case, with a classic 90% stenosis of the outflow vein. I plastied the stenosis with a 7 mm balloon and it opened up about 50%. An 8 mm balloon made it look  about 80% better. After contemplating a bit I decided to try a 9 mm balloon... and BOOM 💣! Vein ruptures. I scramble to rapidly place a covered stent to prevent disaster. It turned out ok, thankfully, but I learned a valuable lesson that day. Perfect is indeed the enemy of good.
.
We are in a demanding field, and most of us are type-A personalities. We are trained to believe that it is unacceptable to make mistakes. The administration demands perfection. Patients demand perfection. We demand perfection in ourselves. This fear of making the smallest mistake can be paralyzing.
.
I’ve learned it’s ok to not be perfect, as long as I can honestly say I gave my best effort AND I LEARN from my mistakes. I’m trying to not have unattainable standards in others as well. Take this picture for example. My oldest son took it. It is almost perfect…It’s nearly “ridiculously photogenic cornhole player” meme-worthy.  It captured a genuine smile, playing my favorite game with my kids, wearing my brand new graphite @wearfigs (FIGSxDOCFUJI for $$$ off)!
.
Notice anything though? I’m just slightly out of focus. My dreams of meme stardom died before they began. My son was afraid that I would be mad at him or make him retake it. However, I was not and did not. I told him it looked great and thanked him for being my photographer, and perhaps he would  become a famous photographer one day. We all felt better as a result.
.
💫Let’s #embraceimperfection.

Our spouses/significant others will thank us.
Our kids will thank us.
Our blood pressure will thank us.
And hopefully, our patients will thank us!

  • Haven't done this in a while but my #WCW has GOT to go out to all the beautiful ladies I had the pleasure of working with these past 2 years down at #LFF. Alongside Suzy Zucker, I was able to help choreograph for the cheerleaders of the most recent #SuperBowlChamps the #PhiladephiaEagles 🦅🏈🏆 These ladies are my #wcw not only because they're DROP DEAD GORGEOUS 😍♥️ but because ALL of these women are great people, very accomplished, and very talented! These past years were filled with a lot of work (Me yelling "GO BACK" a million times😂😂) but also a lot of fun! It was an amazing run and I'm super thankful to have been able to work with you all. On to new endeavors ! Love y'all ✌🏽#GoBirds . SWIPE LEFT
