Simply stated, physicians are overburdened on every front. Most physician personalities do not do well with time pressures and constraints, astronomical workloads, lack of control, etc. The same internal traits that created the drive and allowed us to get through medical school are unfortunately the same traits that contribute to burnout: compulsiveness, guilt and self-denial.
As a whole, doctors have wonderful traits of compassion and intelligence. Type A people are driven and competitive. They set extremely high goals for themselves and beat themselves up when they don’t achieve them, or don’t achieve them fast enough. Type A people are typically anxious people, because they have created the self-imposed pressure of trying to achieve the high goals that they have set for themselves. Type A people play a tune over and over in their brains: “Am I good enough? Am I good enough?”
Type A’s are under innate pressure to succeed. Does that sound like you? You are always in a hurry. You speak fast, you eat fast, you do everything fast. You rarely take time to smell the roses; perhaps you don’t even notice the roses are there? You are always in multi-tasking mode – always.
Physicians are extremely opinionated, extremely judgmental, and no one else can do the job right – except me. We yearn for recognition, and when it doesn’t come, we often have a hard time addressing those who overlooked us: “Don’t they know how great I am? Don’t they realize how much a value I bring to this organization?
We are constantly trying to prove our self-worth – most often to ourselves. Additionally, type A people are often motivated by fear. The fear exists on many levels – fear of failure, fear of not being wildly successful and fear of not living up to what society (and our own inner voices) expects us to be.
In medical school, it is expected that you become a workaholic. Doctors must cut the chains of workaholic conditioning, but for many of us, we do the opposite. At the first sign of burnout, we increase the things we are already doing to get more done in the office or hospital. However, if you do this, you’re trapped.
The reason most physician experience burnout is because they don’t recharge. Just remember that if you are going to have the energy that it takes to do your job and to be there – really be there- for your patients, co-workers, family and friends, recharging is essential. You may even require a hard reboot from time to time.
