Each physician’s situation is unique and must be addressed individually. Since one cannot do everything at once, setting priorities is key and conscious choices must be made.

For example, you may need to be more selective in your journal reading, opting to focus on the most relevant material rather than trying to scan every page of every publication you receive. You may need to postpone some activities. It may be unwise, for example, to take on new outside commitments when you are in the middle of major changes in your practice setting.
