Journey to Excellence—Lessons From Our Mentors
by Neal S. ElAttrache, MD, President, AOSSM (2019)
"Find your purpose. It’s purpose over passion. Learn to experience failure as well as success without being defined by either. Passion is about you and all the baggage you carry—your ego, unbridled feelings, your fears, your needs, your vices. Purpose is about the task. Your goal. Passion will exist, but on your path toward excellence, it must be controlled. It must be subordinated to the purpose, or you will fail."
