Final Tip

If you want to be a better podiatrist, you need to always be on a constant path of learning. 

"Learn like you're going to live forever, live like you're going to die tomorrow."

Every day you should learn something new, and every day you should live your life like you don't have much time left. You'll have far more fun be a lot more interesting. 

If you can afford it, enjoy life. Take the trips, buy cars and live in a beautiful home, but you should always be managing your finances.
