Dr. Saad Saad is one of the most successful pediatric surgeons. The story behind how he became a pediatric surgeon is surprisingly interesting. It started when he visited an oil field in Kuwait with his brother. He did that because his father was working there, as his father was working in the oil and gas industry.
The weather that day was extremely hot, and Dr. Saad fainted. He realized later that he got a heat stroke. He realized that hot weather was not the thing for him, and neither was manual labor or any job working outside in the extreme heat, such as the oil fields. He also realized that there was only one place in Kuwait at that time that had air conditioning, and that was the operating room. Therefore, Dr. Saad made a decision right there and then to become a pediatric surgeon.
There is more to the story. Before his father came to Kuwait, they were living in the holy land. They were forced to relocate during the turmoil at that time. His mother had to leave with nothing but the clothing on her back and some basic possessions. She thought she would have time to come back to her home, but that never happened. His father was not home at the time, so he and his siblings left with their mother. His father had to search far and wide until he finally found his wife and his children.
From this, Dr. Saad Saad says that he learned a very important lesson, and that is that you should never accept anything but the success that you are searching for. You should always strive to be successful and never accept the situation you are in as the one that you are going to have to stay in for the rest of your life. After all, Dr. Saad Saad was a refugee and he nevertheless managed to become one of the most successful pediatric surgeons in the United States.
Dr. Saad Saad says that you should never wait until tomorrow to try to accomplish what you want to accomplish. Always do it today, because if you keep pushing it off until tomorrow, you will never get around to doing it. In fact, Dr. Saad Saad says that living by this rule is what has caused him to be so productive. He never pushes off until tomorrow that which he can accomplish today, so he gets so many things done.
Dr. Saad Saad has come up with a number of important inventions to help out patients, such as a location tracking device for catheter placements so that patients do not have to undergo intrusive scans or x-rays. Learn more: https://www.facebook.com/drsaadsaad12
