Are you considering making a big shift in your life? If not you, then perhaps someone you know? Then this is the episode for you! I’m digging into how you can go about quitting your job, almost, guilt free!

The first step you need to take is to address the guilt that you’re feeling. Who is it serving? What is it telling you? What good is coming to you by holding onto your guilt? What is the guilt keeping you from? 


It’s important to address this huge block because most of us go into medicine feeling as if we’ve been called to it. Suddenly abandoning this calling brings up a lot of turmoil so this is the first thing to address.


Step 2? Get clear on your intentions and how you want to show up in the world. Were you truly called to medicine or can you help heal others in a different way? 


Listen in to hear all of the steps to this framework and hopefully decide if it’s better for you and your family to stay… or to take the leap and go! Because it’s okay to quit your job. Even as a doctor. You have a right to fulfillment and happiness!


“As I have gone through different transitions, guilt has been a big monster emotion that has shown up in my life.” Dr. Errin Weisman

In this episode:

[00:28] Hey OH! Welcome to another episode of Doctor Me First!

[03:00] You can transition whatever your journey is in the best way possible.

[04:49] Step #1, address the guilt.

[06:38] Hey guilt, what are you trying to teach me right now?

[06:54] Who is this guilt serving?

[07:15] What good is coming from holding on to this guilt?

[07:27] What is the guilt protecting you from?

[08:11] Now I’m going to ask you some questions to see if you can move past the guilt or see if there is another emotion under the guilt that you would rather have.

[09:20] Step #2, get clear on your intentions and how you want to show up.

[10:14] Step #3, come up with a short-term plan, transitional plan, and then a long-term goal.

[11:44] Step #4, understand the details so you can do the thing and the technical HR stuff.

[12:54] Step #5, have support all along the way.

[15:09] If you need more support, join the Burned Out to Badass Group or my self paced course the Burned Out to Badass CME.

[15:58] The only thing stopping you, is you. Working on yourself is Uber important.
