We all run busy clinics & there are only so many hours in a day. But, why does it seem that some people are able to get the most out of every minute of the day? Believe it or not, they don’t have the power to slow down time. They do, however, know how to properly manage their time.

To make the most out of your time as a busy clinic owner… Start by using these powerful time management tips.

Use a to-do-list, but don’t abandon tasks.

All goals and projects are made up of smaller parts that need to be accomplished in order to achieve the goal, or complete the project. Create to-do lists listing tasks with an A, B or C priority for each goal and project, listing all the measurable steps that need to be accomplished.

Aside from keeping you focused, this also motivates you as you are able to see what you have already achieved, and what remains.

At the same time, there will interruptions that may prevent you from completing a task. I recommend you make a point of always returning to and completing these tasks once you are able to. This may require you to set a limit on the number of tasks you are working on at any given time. You are better off working on just 2-3 tasks at a time compared to 27 for example.
