In statistics, rho is a measure of correlation. I believe that work ethic and creativity have a strong, positive association with success and future opportunities. Not all health care questions can be answered with due diligence alone, but if I am unfamiliar with a challenge, I know that being thorough in my efforts and open to new approaches will allow me to complete any task. “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.” – Thomas Jefferson.
