Conventional wisdom suggests the best way to navigate our noisy new world is to accept change: Open up to novelty. Go with the flow. Embrace the relentless pelting of content minute by minute. Dr. I. is here to say this is not the best way to journey through our lives — and in fact may go against our very nature.
Dr. Angel Iscovich (aka Dr. “I”) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina to survivors from World War II. Dr. I grew up in the shadow of this devastating conflict. Though he and family struggled with little to call their own, he immigrated to the US where he graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy (Summa Cum Laude) from the University of Puget Sound before matriculating to the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine and obtaining his post graduate training in Psychiatry. His interest in leadership, organizational development, and strategy led him to C-suite positions in the corporate health care sector, as well as chairing Direct Relief, the top-rated charity in the US. Such broad experience affords Dr. I with a unique view into human behavior, aiding in his continual search for meaning and purpose in our lives, the subject of his new book: “Routineology: the Lost Art and Science of Routine."
