Learn the violin
Metaphors are everywhere – they can shape how we think and help us solve problems by showing us new ways of thinking. Some of the best metaphors for new thinking in health care may be out there in other domains – technology, marketing, or business. Peter Drucker, one of the best known thinkers and writers on the philosophy of management was once asked how to be a better manager, his response was “Learn how to play the violin”. He likely would have answered the same if someone asked how to be a better therapist.
Learning to play the violin is a metaphor of course.
