September 8th: Time management


Just in time for the start of the school year, conference season and the run up to Christmas – MedRadJClub presents a chat on time management! This month we’re trying something different and using a few non-MRS journal sources for an informative chat on how to get the most from the limited time we have to work, spend time with family, play, do research, write and all the other things we cram into 24 hours a day. Tell us your time management tips and learn from others who seem to have it all figured out!

Chat themes:

T1. We are probably all guilty of thinking we are time poor. Are we? What external factors contribute to this?
T2. What strategies do you have in place to improve your use of time? Do they work? Are they sustainable?
T3. Which time of day do you feel most productive?
T4. How do you separate work life and personal life? Do you relate to the concept of the 3rd space (Adam Fraser video)
