MTMOT – ‘Make The Most of Time’
After everything has been achieved, the poster gains another level of value. It allows me to look back and see where I have come from. It also allows me to look back and see what was really enjoyable – and programme them into my future calendars a la Tim Ferriss.
- An incredible introduction to Extreme Physiology modules during my BSc. at King’s College London.
- Building my knowledge of cancer biology (Thanks Sophie) – which gives super insights into how to live for a long time.
- Seeing the beauty of Sweden
- Making opportunities to see those friends living far away and harder still, those living close.
- Slow living in Cornwall.
- Sloper on his stag-do!
- Sloper got married!
- The Icelandic Health Symposium (Thanks Tommy!)
- Orthopaedics at KCH, Medicine in Ashford and meeting a fantastic GP, Dr Rattan.
- An actual holiday over the Christmas break (Thanks KCL Progress-Tests)
- Passing OSCEs and writtens
- Diving into human health, performance and resilience at the IHMC for four weeks.
- Attending Low Carb Breckenridge and meeting more heroes.
- Learning about patience and medicine with humanity in WV.
- A 10K, a fell race, a 5K PB, total distance running distance and altitude PB and my first Spartan weekend. My back pain is better and I’m hitting better numbers in the gym.
Entering the final stages of MBBS in preparation for foundation school, I feel like this piece of paper may be the height of my life-organisation for the foreseeable future. Even though a calendar was so useful, I do not, weirdly, feel the need to write up a plan. This approach does not serve me so well right now. Transitioning into the foundation programme (junior doctor-dom) means that uncertainties abound; which hospital, which jobs, which town, which house, which car? What projects can I continue? What sport to do? What long term goals fit my changing lifestyle?
