Dr. Scott Kelly
I sat down with practicing orthopedic physician and author of the book, “What I’ve Learned From You: The Lessons Of Life Taught To A Doctor By His Patients“. He shared the story of how this moving and inspirational book came together. He described how the book was drawn from journaling he did during his medical training over the course of several years.
He has always had a passion for writing and uses the medium as a way to process things that are important to him or that make an impression on him in his daily life. Dr. Kelly talked about how he was going through some things in the attic and came across the journal several years after putting it away and how emotional it was to go back and read his thoughts and experiences from that time in his life.
He thought the interesting experiences and life lessons he picked up through numerous patient encounters would be great for his children to hear about and decided to put it into book for basically for them. He decided to submit the manuscript to publishers and was surprised by the enthusiastic positive response he received.
You’ll enjoy listening to him tell his story and you can readily hear how big of an impact those life experiences had on him that he carries with him today. Check this great interview and learn more at his website.
