It's time for another podcast episode and this week, I am joined by Dr. Mark Lavercombe - a respiratory and sleep medicine physician from Melbourne, Australia. He is also a senior lecturer at The University of Melbourne and writes about productivity, clinical education, and leadership at The Productive Physician.

Show Notes

On this episode of the podcast, I spoke with Dr. Mark Lavercombe. Mark is a specialist physician and medical educator, who writes on productivity, clinical education and leadership at The Productive Physician. We spoke about how he defines productivity, how he became passionate about productivity, how he sets boundaries and more.

Here are a few highlights from the show:

  • Why misdiagnoses are common
  • Know why you are doing something is essential
  • How good assumptions can actually lead to bad habits (such as leaving email open)
  • The balance between being reactive and proactive
  • Identifying what you want to achieve as well as why you want to achieve it
  • Linking motivation with the emotional and intellectual basis for goals helps clarify thinking
  • Making time for yourself
  • Setting boundaries according to rules that you establish
