Time Management

Most of the physicians and surgeons we know complain that they do not have enough time. Many are overwhelmed by how much they have to do and how little time they seem to have available. Unfortunately, most do not know how to manage their time wisely. Time management is crucial to a successful medical career and creating effective work-life balance. It is also a crucial tool in managing and preventing burnout. Effective time management can reduce stress and help bring balance to your life in and out of the office.


Time management training most often begins with setting goals. These goals are recorded and may be broken down into a project, an action plan, or a simple task list. Activities are then rated based on urgency and importance, priorities assigned, and deadlines set. This process results in a plan with a task list or calendar of activities. 


In addition to individual coaching sessions, Coaching for Physicians can schedule also appointments for Marathon coaching either at Dr. Hudson’s farm in Cedar Grove, Santa Fe, NM or his uptown office location in Albuquerque.  For an additional fee and expenses, Dr. Hudson will also come to you and provide one-on-one, confidential marathon coaching intensives in your home, office or other location.In marathon coaching  individuals meet one-on-one with Dr. Hudson for 5 hours a day and for 1-3 consecutive days and stay overnight at a nearby hotel or bed and breakfast (we can help you make arrangements). Each individual or couple has a unique schedule that is worked out in advance.Marathon coaching is especially useful for physician clients who cannot attend weekly coaching sessions and need to travel from distant locations. It provides a brief, intensive and focused approach to your coaching issues and is designed to help you learn new skills in less time. 


This entire process is supported by a skill set that includes personal motivation, delegation skills, organization tools, and crisis management.
