At the Dental Business Club we recently asked a group of practice owners: “What is the biggest challenge facing you in the area of time management right now?” and some of the more popular replies included:
The time to think, breathe, relax and vision
To stop business paperwork encroaching on my leisure time on Saturdays and Sundays
CQC outcomes and registration
Removing low value treatments, and no value treatments from my appointment book
Staying focused and not allowing distractions – especially email – to interrupt my flow in achieving the really important things
I know that the irony of the last of these will not have escaped you! To this end, I’ll be finishing 2010 with a reflection on the year and a look forward to 2011 – in particular, how you get “get everything done” in 2011, without losing your time balance.
