Like most physicians, I am a little obsessive-compulsive, which keeps us from making critical errors clinically. Sometimes it is hard for us to accept that perfection is not possible for mere mortals. We seek to find it, but it always eludes us and can frustrate us until we realize that the pursuit in itself is enough. Trying to be as good as possible does not mean that we think we are God. Indeed, it shows that we accept our humility.
