The news is always full of stories about stressed and overworked doctors who wonder how they can cope with all the tasks that have to be fitted into each day.
If you are a busy doctor what would be the most important issue or problem you would like to get rid of?
- managing time more effectively?
- having a better work-life balance ?
- looking after your health and well-being?
Please let me know HERE by answering a short survey.
Take some time to think about your life and whether it’s the way you want it to be.
Then work out, step by step what you need to do differently.
Always start with yourself because by changing yourself others will respond differently.
One of the most important things you can do is to improve your level of communication by listening twice as much as talking. This will improve the morale within the practice and lead to a new more productive working environment with partners and staff becoming more motivated.
You will find that if you make small changes in the way you work that you can achieve real change for the better both for yourself and for the your medical practice.
Just like a spreadsheet when you change one thing everything else changes too.
It’s easy to stay stuck and not do anything to change the situation. People who have taken steps to do things differently are surprised at how easy it turned out to be. They have procrastinated for ages because they thought taking the first step would be more difficult.
Make the decision about what you need to do, find someone such as a coach or mentor to support you and go forward to live the life you want.
