Key Quotes:

  • “Use technology to automate repetitive and time-consuming tasks… Automation reduces the cognitive load associated with managing these tasks manually.”
  • “Standardize routine procedures with checklists and protocols. This will not only ensure consistency but it also reduces the cognitive effort required to remember every step of the process.”
  • “Focus your mental energy on activities that directly contribute to your practice’s success and your professional growth.”
  • “Periodically review your workload and your productivity. Reflect on what’s working and what isn’t and be willing to adjust your strategies accordingly.”
