Atul Gawande - See if you can keep the conversation going.
My Rule #1 Ask an unscripted question
My Rule #2 Don't whine
My Rule #3 Count something
My Rule #4 Write something

"The invention of a mechanism for the systematic publication of fragments of scientific work may well have been the key event in the history of modern science." - The physician and poet Lewis Thomas

My Rule #5 my final rule for a good life in medicine, is: Change
Nonetheless, make yourself an early adopter

Don't let yourself be. Find something new to try, something to change. Count how often it succeeds and how often it doesn't. Write about it. Ask a patient or a colleague what they think about it.
