Region 7 – Never Stop Diving for Knowledge
For thousands of year, pearls were highly sought. In many parts of the world,you can find subcultures of deep sea divers known for their ability to collect hundreds of pounds of oysters and mussels from the ocean floor, lake, or river bottoms just to find a few quality pearls.
Often these divers would have to descend to depths of over 100 feet on a single breath, exposing themselves to the inherit dangers. Much like the pearl divers of the past, we all pursue our own pearls in the form of knowledge. We have all experienced that Aha! moment where we find out a piece of knowledge that seems to change the paradigm of our understanding of something. These moments, many times, become the pearls of wisdom that drive our careers to the next level. These discoveries can be as small as finally answering that coding/billing question that you have been searching for all day or it can be as rare of a discovery as that go-to-strategy or process that you learned and have used on countless projects.
It is this pursuit of knowledge that helps us navigate the ever changing healthcare environment. Although we each have a unique set of skills and achievements, it is through our combined efforts toward a common goal that we may achieve the best results. It is this combined search for knowledge that makes us the strong professionals we are.
This is why it is so important that we never stop diving for the pearls of knowledge that help promote us as healthcare professionals.
