    #104. Creating Healthy Boundaries With Technology

    #104. Creating Healthy Boundaries With Technology

    Years ago, I transitioned from physician burnout to entrepreneur burnout in my online business. And it was primarily from not having healthy boundaries with technology. When I first started out in entrepreneurship, I worked 60 hours a week in medicine plus another 20-30 hours a week on my blog and business. Business culture indoctrination often means we find ourselves believing we need to hustle 24/7 to get results, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
    What’s really important about today’s episode is understanding how we can use technology not to worsen our constant availability – which can lead to burnout – but instead how to use that technology to set boundaries.

    #103. How Much Money Should Doctors Save

    #103. How Much Money Should Doctors Save

    One thing we can agree on about today’s topic is this: doctors historically are under-savers. 
    But when it comes to physician money management, exactly how much doctors should be saving is hotly contested. Lisha and I spent 15 minutes debating our perspectives before we even hit record! So we know you’re going to land with a variety of opinions.
    Of course, how much and how you save are going to depend on your own financial goals and your current situation - the status of your student loans, whether you’re married or have kids or plan to start a family, when you want to retire, etc.
    So by the end of this episode, we’ll give you two different options for figuring out how much money you should save - regardless of your situation.

    #102. The Problematic State of Medicine

    #102. The Problematic State of Medicine

    With today’s episode, we’re doing things a little differently. Instead of a podcast, you’re getting a sneak peek of the audiobook version of my latest book, “Determined: How Burned Out Doctors Can Thrive in a Broken Medical System.”
    Yes, we’re talking burnout – a topic very familiar to you as a medical professional. It’s messy, it’s layered, and it’s part of the problematic state of medicine.
    Burnout is twice as high in physicians versus the general population. Not only is that statistic alarming, but the potential consequences of burnout on medical professionals are staggering. Higher rates of substance and alcohol use, depression, and suicide are not uncommon problems in medicine.
    On the systematic front, burnout has been linked with higher physician turnover, worse patient care and outcomes, decreased patient satisfaction, higher healthcare costs, and increased risk for major medical errors.
    Burnout is costly for physicians and for the patients under our care.
    But as Albert Einstein once wisely said, “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” 
    In this week’s episode of The Physician Philosopher podcast, I’m sharing my audio recording of the first chapter of my book. 
    You’ll Learn: The top 5 reasons physicians feel burned out Why we need greater focus on personal and professional autonomy in medicine How compassion serves as a key factor in burnout recovery and systematic change The role of purpose and how it deepens our professional experience Take a listen on your favorite podcast listening platform and leave a comment.
     All the best,

    #101. Paying Off Debt or Investing for Physicians

    #101. Paying Off Debt or Investing for Physicians

    I can’t tell you how often other physicians ask me, “Hey, I understand the math, but I just don't know: should I be paying off my student loans? Should I be investing and maxing out my 401k, or should I be paying off a car?”
    There’s advice out there that says you should invest at all costs, that anyone who doesn't put all their money towards investments is crazy. Then, at the other end of the spectrum is the school of thought that says you shouldn’t do anything else until you pay off all your physician debt.
    As with most nuanced subjects, it’s not black and white. 
    The right path – for YOU – depends on a lot of different factors. When figuring out whether to pay off debt versus investing, it requires more than just math –  because humans aren't robots.

    #100. 3 Doctors Who Changed Their Life Through Physician Coaching

    #100. 3 Doctors Who Changed Their Life Through Physician Coaching

    Given that this is the 100th episode of this show, I thought it would be pretty cool to share the stories of those who have listened to this podcast and had their lives changed as a result.
    And today is doubly-special, because The Alpha Coaching Experience (ACE) is finally open again. It’s been six months since we opened the doors last, and we only open the program twice per year.
    So, instead of me telling you about the impact ACE has had on doctors, I thought I’d let three doctors who have gone through the physician coaching program share their stories. Here’s how they overcame their situations to create the time, financial freedom, and mindset shifts they needed to practice medicine on their terms.

The Art and Importance of Saying No

The importance of this podcast cannot be understated.
As doctors, we want to please and do the best we can for our patients. Sometimes that means saying yes because you can’t say no! It can often spill out into our marriages as physicians as well.

Bravo, Dr. Jimmy!!!!
