One of the great things about producing Tha’ ZVlogg has been the flexibility to talk about WHATEVER I want, and then trying to tie that subject back to the practice of healthcare (or not). For the current episode, I’ve been thinking a lot about the nature of free will (or the lack thereof) lately and how it might apply to our interactions with patients, colleagues, and ourselves. So I decided to vlog about free will. Or more accurately, my unconscious brain determined I would blog about it, and my conscious brain became aware of that determination, and made up a story to explain how “I decided” to do it. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Check it out in the 25th episode of Tha’ ZVlogg…you have NO CHOICE after all!

Think I’m crazy on this subject? Think again. Here’s a great “Cliff’s Notes” type summary of Sam Harris‘s short book on the subject.
