Day 1 (again!): Why I'm Going Through Ship 30 Once More

I first signed up for Dickie Bush & Nicolas Cole's cohort-based course, Ship 30 for 30 in March 2022.

I wanted to find “my voice” and develop my skills as a digital writer. And to some extent I have done both of those. But most importantly, I have found in writing a way to clarify and deepen my thoughts and ideas.

And somewhat addictive as well!

Here are a few reasons why I am going through the entire cohort once more:

  1. Every time I consume the curriculum, I learn something new. It’s the same material, but I’m not the same writer I was a few months ago.
  2. I want to continue writing about lifestyle design, mindset and physician entrepreneurship, but from a different perspective. Looking back I’ve written a lot of how-to essays (Actionable) and not enough why (Anthropological).
  3. I have the opportunity to mentor first-time shippers. In medicine, there’s a tradition called see one, do one, teach one. It is how we learn procedures. You watch someone do one (or a few), then you do one, and you close the circle by teaching someone to do one.

Join me on this new chapter—and let me know if you have any questions along the way!

I'm excited to continue sharing what I know online.
