Most of the physicians in their later part of careers have been known to take sabbaticals . It prevents an early burn out and also helps them to extend their working years .One is supposed to come back rejuvenated to face the future challenges . One can spend their sabbatical in various ways ;Most commonly one does a mission trip or a teaching assignment in another country ;You can do exotic holidays or learn new skills or some times just introspect about your life choices .

Its presumed sabbaticals are intentional and not forced .

But what happens when its a  forced sabbatical ?

Like a job termination ,medical issue or a family necessity . Does picking up the thread is as easy even if financially you are not burnt .Are you emotionally stable and strong ?Do you have the same amount of enthusiasm ?Are you ready to fail one more time?

As we near the final election days in the US , Presidency for Trump is getting bleaker .One wonders , why these revelations are  coming to the fore front now when there is no way to undo whatever has been done . There were many accomplished , experienced and  educated candidates who started the race with him but had to drop out . Would they treat it as forced sabbatical and pick up the threads again ?Would luck and milieu be on their side the next time ?Only time will tell
