On Fridays I set aside time to get together with a group of colleagues to nerd out on muscle and motor control stuff. I love this time.
I make mistakes.
All in the safety of a group of peers that enjoy the learning process as much as I do. Today we tackled a motor control client of mine, I had a few things confirmed to me....
Perspective is important. Taking a look at a problem from a different perspective can yield different ideas, different approaches, different results. Sometimes you need someone to help you have a different perspective.
Respect other ideas and approaches. My group consists of me, a PT, an OT, a pilates instructor, and a chiropractor...we look at the problem/objective with different set of eyes and there are no egos. Ahhh, refreshing. In an industry that has physical therapists and chiropractors and massage therapists at odds most of the time, it is a great reminder what we can accomplish when we respect other's ideas and approaches.
Have fun. Did you know you learn more when you can laugh and engage the new material? Yep, laughter is pretty powerful stuff.
I love my Friday gang. I love learning. I love the collaboration. I love my life....
A little from Dr. Dan, a little from Lisa but always a lot of good stuff!
