Your Life Can Be Better, and so can mine –
if we recognize problems, and then apply the formula: recognize, strategy, rule, habit.
My job is difficult, but I love it.
One of my many frustrations was dealing with a bunch of different forms as I move from office to office and patient to patient. I spent so much time shuffling through stacks of papers trying to find the specific one I needed at the moment. Frustrating!
So, if you’ve read the book or been paying attention as we go along, the solution is already obvious to you, right?
It took me a year
to finally realize that this was not only an ongoing frustration and waste of time, but it was also A Problem. That means, in my philosophy, there must be a solution. And I found it.
I got two of these suckers, one green and one purple. The green one holds the routine papers- encounter forms, order sheets, handouts, etc – each in its own pocket. The purple one holds the consent forms the patients need to sign, assorted according to the different types of medications.
Finding the right paper is a breeze. My life is better.
If something is frustrating you, or wasting your time, or interfering with your efficiency, your comfort, your satisfaction, then it probably is not just life as she is, but it’s probably A Problem.
Your life can be better!

New rule: I will not lay my iPhone down anywhere except on my desk, bedside table, or bathroom counter. Nowhere else. Only one of those places.
Let’s see how that works.
