  • Entrepreneur White Paper: Time Management

    Efficiency is profitable and will get you to where you want to be. Efficiency will help you get there sooner, easier, and at lesser expense. Devising a plan to get there becomes crucial.

    At a recent college reunion, twenty-five years after we first entered medical school, I met many old classmates and re-learned one important lesson.

    Being Time Efficient Is HIGHLY Profitable!

    One theme kept popping up over and over again in our conversations.

    “Our kids rarely get to see their dad, he’s so busy!”

    “I go to work at 6 a.m. and get back around 7 in the evening!”

    “My son WON’T be a doctor – because he sees how crazy our schedule is!”

    And invariably, the next question is: “As a heart surgeon, you must be working very long hours, right?”

    They were all surprised when I said my average ‘work day’ at the hospital is 2 hours – except when I’m operating, when it is 7 hours (or longer, depending upon how complex the surgery is).

    How do I manage this? How do I have so much “free time” when everyone else has “No Time”? How am I juggling so many exciting projects in ADDITION to my regular work?

    It’s really quite simple. Let me explain.

    Too often, we struggle, rush and get stressed because we don’t know what we want.

    Oh, you probably do in a very general, broad way.

    “I want to be rich.”
    “I want to be fit and healthy.”
    “I want more family time.”
    “I want to travel the world.”
    “I want to help charities.”

    But that won’t do. You need to first get specific. Very specific.

    And then, you’ve got to identify the best way to achieve those goals.

    Now, this may not be a quick fifteen minute exercise. It could take days, even weeks or months before you discover what you really want and come up with a workable plan, before you can set out to get it.

    It is time well spent (or rather, invested) – because those plans and action steps will guide you towards the highest and best use of your limited time.

    In essence, the powerful time management secrets boil down to four different things.
