The most repetitive lesson of medical school

1. If it doesn't make sense, or you don't know how to do it, fake it 
2. Just keep faking it and moving forward
3. If you fake it long enough, it will eventually make sense / you'll figure it out
4. As soon as it makes sense it will be time to move on to the next thing that doesn't yet make sense*
5. Repeat

It amazes me how many times this cycle has repeated itself during my medical school experience.  And yet, it still continues to repeat. 

*Sometimes, you actually have to move on before you realize it makes sense, but then you move on and that last thing just "clicks".  Slightly out of order but the process still holds true.
