4) The Four Horsemen of the Burnout Apocalypse
In my experience of 2000 hours of one-on-one coaching with physician clients, I can say confidently that the biggest contributor to burnout is the programming we all absorb in training. We stress and burn out because we were conditioned to do so by the non-verbal messages we absorb.
Here are the four main components of our physician programming - the four horsemen if you will.
5) How does Burnout Work in the Bodies of Its Victims
The mistake most of us make is thinking burnout is when your batteries run out and you just need a recharge. Nothing could be further from the truth. Learn what is really going on and why you can be the last person to recognize you are burned out.

6) Burnout's Highest and Best Use
I have helped hundreds of doctors recover from burnout. They usually start out wanting to return to the way things used to be. They are looking in the rear view mirror and wanting to return to an earlier time. That is an understandable dream, but it limits your options considerably. Most of my clients have discovered when you recover from burnout with your eyes wide open, the future is much better than the past.

7) First You Must Understand Burnout is NOT a Problem
This is the critical error most doctors make when trying to prevent or treat burnout. If you think burnout is a problem, you will look for a solution. Give that up. There is no solution to burnout, not because you can't address it effectively, but because it is not a problem in the first place.
