This week, on the EIM Practice Leadership Podcast, Dr. Larry Benz discusses a little of his passion: social neuroscience and behavioral economics. Those of you that know Larry know that he loves to learn and get additional degrees and certifications. However, Larry is sharing something powerful that he learned NOT from any of his formal education.
Today, Larry talks about one of the MOST IMPORTANT things that we ALL need to have.
Mindfulness is a huge buzzword right now and yet, so important. Larry quotes Herbert Simon who said: “A Wealth of Information Creates a Poverty of Attention.” Larry, then, shares a very interesting study on the Parable of the Good Samaritan. All of this to prove that we are all in a hurry these days. The busyness and the overstimulation of too much information has prevented us from being mindful, in the moment, and doing the best things for us and for our patients.
This episode is packed with gold.
