#ProtectingSight #365 (1 year!): What frogs in hot water can teach us about thinking again. Iatrogenic zonular dehiscence, reverse RAPD, & orbital apex syndrome. Bitcoin, carbon credits, & rare metals.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. I started this blog post series on June 14, 2020 in hopes of creating better habits for learning. Today marks 1 year of consistent daily posts.

Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Adam Grant: What frogs in hot water can teach us about thinking again. “Why are humans so slow to react to looming crises, like a forewarned pandemic or a warming planet? It’s because we’re reluctant to rethink, say organizational psychologist Adam Grant. From a near-disastrous hike on Panama’s highest mountain to courageously joining his high school’s diving team, Grant borrows examples from his own life to illustrate how tunnel vision around our goals, habits and identities can find us stuck on a narrow path. Drawing on his research, he shares counterintuitive insights on how to broaden your focus and remain open to opportunities for rethinking.” (ted.com)

This is an extraordinary Ted Talk. Filled with insights, observations, and action plans to broaden ideas, re-think opportunities, and address challenges.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1133: Capsule grabbed with phaco probe. Excellent teaching pearls.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Reverse RAPD (& Orbital Apex Syndrome).

Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.

4. TIP353: THE BEST PERFORMING ASSET IS NOT BITCOIN W/ MARIN KATUSA. “In this week’s episode, Trey Lockerbie sits down with NYT best-selling author and investor, Marin Katusa. Marin is a contrarian value investor who specializes in gold, uranium, rare earth, and most recently, carbon credits.”

I particularly enjoyed this podcast episode and Katusa’s discussion of carbon credits & rare metals.

Celebrating Day 365 … Thank you for reading this blog!

I started this blog to hold myself accountable on lifelong learning. Each post included at least four items drawn from Ted Talks, cataract surgery videos, ophthalmology journal articles, case reports, neuro-ophthalmology videos, book chapters, podcasts and more.

I hope to continue the journey in the years ahead. (Though may take a day off once in a while.)

Please send me feedback and wish me luck!
