Time – that’s the most common problem or concern doctors face and struggle with. At least that’s what I learned when I spoke at a doctors’ conference recently. Do you share the shared sentiment? Well, you probably do. So today, I want to share my principles about time that you might also find valuable and helpful.
I believe that time is our most precious resource. We can’t stop time and once it’s gone, we can’t bring it back. There are two important things around the time we need to remember. First, we can choose how we use our time. You can choose to spend it on the things that are more important to you. Prioritization and delegation are keys to making the most of your precious time. For example, you can ask other people to do certain tasks for you if you think there are more important tasks that need your attention. It’s okay to take some things off your plate and give them to somebody else. This way, you’ll have more time for the things that you think are more essential.
The second principle is related to the things that we’re really good at and how we use them as a distraction. Sometimes we tend to do more of these things that we neglect the other important areas of life that we actually need to focus on. Remember that it’s good to use your precious time for the things that you love and are really good at. But don’t use up all your time on them that they hinder you from paying attention to and accomplishing other important things.
I hope you find these principles beneficial not only to your professional life but also to your personal life. Do you have any other tips about using time efficiently? I’d like to hear them, so please feel free to share. Have a great day wherever you are in the world! Till next time. Bye for now!
