words to live by

Stolen from a friend, but a great quote and words that echo what I often tell medical students, incoming residents, and those interested in pursuing a career in surgery but worried about having a personal life.  Don’t put your life on hold because you are waiting for the “right time”.  For many things in life, waiting for the “right time” may mean you are waiting forever.

If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.

~C.S. Lewis
