Why Time Audits Suck And What To Do Instead

Have you ever done a time audit?
They’re tremendous tools to help you understand

  • exactly how you’re using your time
  • where you’re wasting time, and
  • where you’re spending time that isn’t “wasteful” per se, but isn’t in line with your priorities.

And …

They suck.

Who wants to schlep a time log around 24×7 for days on end and record what you’re doing every minute of the day?

Not me!

And I’m guessing not you, either.

Why?

They’re hard.

They’re inconvenient.

And most people won’t actually do them.

Who has the patience for that, let alone the time for it?!

But this is what time management experts want you to do.

And not without good reason – it IS an effective tool.

But it’s not very realistic.

At least not for me.

Or my clients.

So what’s a busy physician mom to do when she doesn’t have TIME for a time audit –
But also knows she needs to get a handle on her time management schedule?
Because she has WAAAAAY more to do than she has hours in the day.

I created my 5 Minute Time Audit for Busy Physician Moms to solve this very problem!

It’s a one-page guide that will take you 5 minutes or less to complete (really!).

Will it give you the same information you get from a 7-day time audit?
Of course not!

But it will give you a quick snapshot of where you might be wasting your time that you’re not even aware of.
And it will give you perspective.
It will give you a chance to reflect on what you see.
And decide if it’s in line with your priorities.
Your values.

🎯 It will take you less than 5 minutes to gain this valuable insight.
🎯 You will have actionable information.
🎯 And it might just be the tipping point you need to make some changes.

Changes in how you spend your time – at work and at home
So you can focus on what’s most important to you
And become the doctor, partner, and parent you want to be.

What I’ve seen over and over again, both personally and with my coaching clients,
Is that getting a handle on how you use your time is a catalyst for:

✅ finding work-life balance
✅ avoiding burnout, and
✅ feeling successful as both a doctor and a mom
