The one word that sums up everything I do is connection.

I believe that you cannot effectively connect with somebody else if you haven’t yet learned to connect with yourself. So in this episode, I explore how we disconnect from ourselves and how that impacts society. And why the most successful healthcare businesses market via connection.

Highlights include:

5:48 – “What is not mentioned is how medicine has morphed from thoughtful engagement between doctors and patients to cookie-cutter recipes that regard all individuals alike. And how this cookbook approach, defined by its rote and formulaic approach to practicing medicine, leads to less accurate diagnoses – and worse outcomes – for patients.” Source: When Doctors Don’t Listen, Leana Wen, MD and Joshua Kosowsky, MD

7:55 – JM: “We’re now at a place in our society where we are putting information into an app or technology and using that to understand ourselves, instead of listening to our own bodies.”

8:00 – JM: “What happens when we train ourselves to not know ourselves but rely on something else to tell us about ourselves?”
