Certified Legal Nurse Consultants: What Meaning Will You Bring to 2011?

The meaning of something is nothing more than what we make it. Two legal nurse consultants can be in the same situation but come out with different interpretations of the experience. Why? One pushes and resists, while the other flows with the experience. Michelangelo’s masterpiece “David” was carved from one piece of Carrara marble that two other sculptors had tried to carve, but rejected as bad. After the rejections, that particular piece of marble had lain untouched for 25 years before Michelangelo was able to convince the government of Florence that he could work with the stone. The result became art history.

When I worked in the ICU, I learned that “fighting” the equipment got me nowhere. Working with it, like Michelangelo did with a slab of Carrara marble, made the equipment work (well at least most of the time). Unlike me and the equipment, Michelangelo never fought the marble, he simply let it guide him. The same principle applies in your CLNC® business. Relax. Chill and you will redefine your experience, even when an attorney says “no” to you or when your day is not going as planned. Let the experience guide you.
