Bridging the gap…between the business of medicine and the practice of medicine.

January / February 2009: Time Management

Time Management

In truth, when we talk about time management, our real subject is self management. Everyone asks rhetorically, “Where does the time go?” It doesn’t go anywhere; when one moment passes, another occurs. It’s what we do with each of these passing moments that determines our effectiveness, productivity, and success in juggling everything required to keep a medical practice (and a meaningful personal life) afloat.

Still, most of us use the term “time management” when we talk about having more control, getting a better handle on our schedule, or finding the time to do all the things we need and want to do. And that is the topic of this issue of Doctor’s Digest.
