At a recent college reunion, twenty-five years after we first entered college, 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 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.
