But, Four years in college though have taught me medicine (which i would have learnt even by reading books any day) , they didn't teach me to become the professional I wanted to be...but These years, The harsh life here, The rotten experiences & The people I came across, taught me something more important...They taught me valuable lessons of life....lessons I am going to remember for the rest of my life & use 'em to shape my attitude for times ahead.
So, here's a list of 10 important lessons I'av learnt from my College experiences :
- Never let your personal and professional lives mix ( i knew this one even before i entered the med-school, but now it is imprinted in stone in my mind)...'cuz whenever They both mix, both are affected adversely.
- When you are dealing with Dogs...always remember that every Dog has it's day, If it's not your day today, wait patiently for yours & when it comes, treat all those Dog's the way they treated you and other's when it was their day ('cuz there are some people who only understand when they'r kicked face down into mud by a kick on their butts).
- But, When you are not dealing with Dogs and rather decent humans....remember to treat them in the same way you would expect yourself to be treated if you were in their place, treat them with same dignity as you would expect for yourself if you were in their place. ('cuz it's the only thing that would save you from being labelled as Dog in other people's book, always remember other's are as human as you are)
- Respect a person who's doing his work with honesty and dedication, whatever and how soever trivial it maybe..'cuz by doing his part sincerely he's making life easier for you, even if it's teeniest bit. (Judge a person on his efficiency in work not his efficiency to get credit without doing the work)
- The Golden rule to Judge a person's character is by wether he realizes the importance of the time of others..not just his equals but that of his subordinates. (If a person respects the value of your time, respect them remember this yourself as well while dealing with people)
- Every professional has a shelf life, acknowledge yours when your time comes and bow out with grace at your professional Zenith ( it's better than watching your glory turn into dust right before your own eyes)
- If you love your profession and you cannot tolerate babudom, nepotism & flattery then either work hard on developing your patience, controlling your anger and facing disappointments or else work for the sake of your love (forget about the rest)
- If you love your profession and you are surrounded with brick idiots use the following ass saving precaution...keep your reason and common sense on a burner & forget about it till the time's right ('cuz if u'll use 'em you'll find your own ass on the burner instead) or else find a new job!!!
- Never trust people especially who love to call themselves your friends ( and you can't remember one friendly act of their's)..they are jackals and hyenas wearing human skin..ready to pounce on you at the first chance.
- Don't let your success and your position go to your ahead 'cuz they turn you blind and the higher you rise the harder you fall, and Don' let your conscience die...no one but you can allow it to be killed & the day it dies, you'll be dead as a Human being..what would be left of you would be an animal. ('cuz Both humans and animals are living beings, the thing that makes us human is our conscience)
