20 Things I Believe

I believe that I’m a huge fan of the recent interviews Medical Meetings has done with Dr. Murray Kopelow.

I believe that we need more of this type of advocacy on behalf of the CME community.

I believe that Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens should all be in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

I believe that Dr. Wes’s blog post on The Slow Death of the Medical Blog-o-sphere is right on the money.

I believe that the situation is even worse when it comes to CME blogs.

I believe that this makes me kind of sad.

I believe that the Bacon Batter Bread I made last week was outrageously delicious and should probably be illegal.

I believe I’m looking forward to going to the Alliance conference in Orlando next week.

I believe it’s been freaking cold in the Northeast these past two weeks.

I believe that might be the biggest reason I’m looking forward to going to the Alliance conference in Orlando next week.

I believe that the Flipped Classroom educational model might be a bit overrated.

I believe that I believe that because I believe most participants won’t do the initial work required for it to be successful.

I believe others will disagree with me and call me a Negative Nellie.

I believe they might be right.

I believe I’m looking forward to doing my Ignite Session on DIY CME next Thursday.

I believe I’m also a little nervous about it.

I believe that being an independent CME consultant can be a tough gig sometimes.

I believe that I still enjoy doing it.

I believe that the friends I have made in the CME community are incredibly supportive and I’m thankful to have them.

I believe that this “Sad Clown with the Golden Voice” cover of Lorde’s Royals is mesmerizing.

  1. We all need something to believe in. I believe I’d like to ask you to post the recipe for the Bacon Batter Bread.

  2. I agree with wanting the Bacon Batter Bread recipe! I also agree with most of your other 19 items 🙂

  3. Beth Brillinger

    When are you making the Bacon Batter Bread again? I know where you live.

  4. I BELIEVE IN YOU, Derek.
    Apologia: I don’t eat meat so no bacon bread for me. Now who’s the Sad Clown?
    See you in Orlando

  5. Greselda beat me to it: I believe in you, too, Derek. And I think I agree with most of your items… now getting back to the bacon. Thanks for the recipe! And I think you live nearby, so don’t be surprised to get a knock on your door.

  6. I am mesmerized by the sad clown. I may never be able to look away. I believe you owe me 3:51. Hope to see you next week–it may be warmer in Florida, but they have no chance at seeing a aurora borealis tonight. Neither do I, really, but I believe it may happen so I’ll be looking.
    P.S. Thanks for the call-outs on the Kopelow interviews. Who better to say it?
