#68: Tips for Time Management with Dr. Christina Shenvi

On today's episode we talk with Dr Christina Shenvi who candidly helps us understand that we can't buy more time, but we can be wise about the time we are given. She comes with an incredible academic pedigree including Princeton, Berkeley, Yale, and UNC. She’s a mom of 4, a practicing emergency physician, educator, keynote speaker, and leader. She’s going to talk with us about how she gets everything done with tips for time management.

Here are some highlights:

  • Effort has three components: direction, intensity, and perseverance.
  • Reflecting on if you are moving in the right direction and applying the right amount of intensity and persevering for only a given amount of time.
  • How to approach a challenge:
      1. Priority: Spend time on the right things. (Can always make more money or invest money and earn interest. Can never make more time, yet we’re often more careful with our money than with how we invest our time.) Get clear on personal priorities and big values. Make sure you’re going the right direction. 
      2. Strategy: Work in the right way. Architect your day/time. Deep work, shallow work, allocating time and deciding ahead of time what you will work on. 
      3. Efficiency: Anything that requires little brainpower or that you do repeatedly, find ways to outsource, delegate, make efficient, or create shortcuts.
      4. Reflection: Activation barrier, and why managing time is all about managing emotions.
