Self-Actualize

ME Asks: What advice would you give yourself about establishing a career in ophthalmology?

“My first piece of advice to my younger self would be to stay younger. I would also recommend the following: Identify your passions early on and focus on self-actualizing goals consistent with your passions. Often, we are drawn in too many directions by wonderful opportunities; however, some of these can end up being a distraction from the things we truly care about. Truly caring about something is required to make a difference.”

Dr. Waring at the inaugural ME Live meeting in 2014.
