How to Juggle in 5 Easy Lessons

  1. Juggling is not easy. It takes a particular type of person to have both the spatial awareness, and the hand-eye coordination necessary to be able to keep 5 (3) items in the air at all times.
    And then once they are all flying, to settle and relax into the juggle is hard too:
    Drop the shoulders, breathe easier, enjoy the experience.

  2. Being a Vet is all about juggling. A vet is rarely doing nothing. You don’t see many drinking coffee and staring into the distance.
    It’s in their nature to be considering the next case, talking to the client, making sure the cat doesn’t jump out of the window, typing the case-notes – all at the same time as dispensing the tablets.
    And this is a small part of what marks vets out from many other people.

  3. There are many ways to determine people’s personality traits. Psychologists have developed a bunch of different methods – some are good for business interviews; some are good for academic study.
    Wouldn’t it be interesting to use Personality Trait analysis to see if vets actually share any of these traits between them?

  4. Knowing their motivations for what they do in life, and knowing how they go about succeeding in the things they do, could be fascinating.
    It would also help those people who are wanting to become vets. And those who are nearly there; or who have just started being vets.
    It’s a way to discover what life as a vet is going to be like – what sort of people are you going to be surrounded by.  What will be expected of you.
    Knowing the personality traits of vets will also hold up a mirror to you. It may help you answer the important questions:

    How long will it be fun for?
    Should I be a vet?
