We only act because of two drivers - to move away from pain or to move towards pleasure .
You normally engage in cpd either because you want to avoid the pain of a cqc or GDC sanction or because you want to engage in genuine learning to improve , grow and maximise your chance of success.
It could be a bit of both
You learn because you want to grow
You want to grow because either you want to evolve beyond something that is causing you pain or discomfort or because you truly care about something
You truly care because you are passionate and inspired and are driven by a purpose
Being driven by a purpose is best done when it involves contribution and serving another
That inspires you
Only then do you do learning to grow because you are inspired because you care
Find something you care about. You will automatically spend time learning about it for hours daily. You'll watch videos, you'll read books, you'll immerse in conversations
Until then learning will simply be a pain ...
How do you make dentistry something that you care about ?
