When browsing social media recently, I saw this incredible image shared by Justin Leader, Executive Group Benefits Advisor at BDS. I want to apply this image a little differently than Justin did, but it’s an image that applies to a wide variety of work and personal situations.
Considering those who read this blog have worked in healthcare, you’re likely all too familiar with this scenario. Are there any decisions on healthcare that are simple?
It’s amazing how we as humans want to take the simple way even if it’s the wrong way. It’s almost part of our nature to take the simplest pathway and avoid the complex one. However, what sets an employee apart is those that spend the time to understand the complex questions to make sure they get the right answer. The simple way seems better until you’re on the path to nowhere. Then, we all wish we’d taken the time to understand the complex.
At the end of the day, along with a pathway to more career success, solving the complex will bring you so much more satisfaction in your work as well. The simple looks easy but will leave you unsatisfied.
If you want an even greater level of career success and satisfaction, spend some time understanding the complex and then figure out how to make that complex simple. The person who can achieve this is a special person that every company wants.
