Thanks for using my photograph to illustrate President Barack Obama’s scholarship at Harvard University School of Law on the Barack Obama Presidential Library Website. There isn’t a twitter handle for the library that I can find, so it’s @ObamaFoundation @BarackObama (of course) and @oplsouthside.

It’s an honor.

The photograph, by the way, was taken when I was enrolled in the Kaiser Permanente Executive Leadership Program, operated by the Harvard School of Business Executive Education Program (@HBSExecEd). Besides this time being a moment of record-breaking snowfall, it was also a time of mind- and horizon- expansion for me.

Well, actually every day is like that for me (and it should be for everyone). I snapped a shot every morning, and I specifically remember this one, with a quote from Steve Jobs.

I still feel this way, which is that I/we/humans are often asked directly or indirectly to live someone else’s life – I have been asked this many many (many) times. It seems to frustrate people when people like me/us/humans elect not to do that, and that’s the right choice, and it comes with consequences. That’s all right, though. My generation of physicians came to health care to change everything, and we’d never be successful if we were trapped by dogma.

The original photograph is below, along with the rest in the series. Enjoy, and thanks for the view.
