Since I have two ears and one mouth, I long ago came to the conclusion that I should listen twice as much as I speak. Having the privilege to sit behind the lens of the camera for the production of The “Bad” Brad Berkwitt Show, that ratio has increased to 4:1…look with both eyes, listen with both ears, and then speak thereafter. Adhering to nature’s ratio of the order of our senses, I am bubbling forth to finally speak to what I have observed behind the lens.
We recently had the honor of having Dr. Corey Schoenewe as our guest on The BBB Show, and boy, did I learn a lot. Dr. Schoenewe was a delightful guest, energetic, caring, genuinely compassionate. What I most appreciated is his versatility. On one side of the spectrum, he acted in a movie, and on the other side, he was responsible for two crucial pieces of legislation, one being the mandatory blood testing of combat participants, and the other which gives immunity to ringside physicians from malpractice except in cases of gross negligence.
Peering behind the lens, I enjoyed seeing Dr. Schoenewe interact with “Bad” Brad. Most of us think of doctors as serious, astute, lacking a sense of humor or as not having a lighter side. One needs only to look at the promo to see that the good doctor likes a laugh just like the rest of us.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all step outside of our daily lives and get to interact with someone with a different perspective? I encourage everyone to take a moment to do so. Our personal perspective grows when we get a chance to observe others from a different set of eyes.
