Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:
1. Ted Talk – Niro Sivanathan: The counterintuitive way to be more persuasive. “What’s the best way to make a good point? Organizational psychologist Niro Sivanathan offers a fascinating lesson on the “dilution effect,” a cognitive quirk that weakens our strongest cases — and reveals why brevity is the true soul of persuasion.” (ted.com)
Love this insight on the dilution effect. Plan to implement this pearl immediately. And starting with my next Zoom meeting.
2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1085: Zero power IOL for ultra myopia. Great pearls.
3. Andrew Lee MD – Apraxia of eyelid opening.
Dr. Lee’s 450+ neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.
I started yoga in the early 2000s, set aside as I started golfing, and returned often. A yoga session is perfect post-office day. Love the Yoga With Adriene workouts on YouTube (916 million views!)
Ophthalmologists and surgeons can often suffer from musculoskeletal issues in later life. In-office and surgical modifications are addressed by the Academy’s Ergonomics Task Force. The free-course “Ergonomics Best Practices” (2016) states, “This online course reviews ergonomic risk factors in the clinic, operating room, and situations unique to ophthalmologists that lead to musculoskeletal stress.” In addition, a recent award-winning video “Posture Perfect: Ergonomics for the Ophthalmic Surgeon” includes strategies to address ergonomics for ophthalmologists of all ages. Both resources are available on the Academy’s ONE Network.
