Dear SIT members,
Believe it or not, we are halfway through the year. And as we ask ourselves where the time has gone, we should also look forward and ask where the time is going. For me, this has become a critical question. As I progress in my career, I notice increasingly that time is the limiting factor. How much we can accomplish is restricted by the number of hours in the day. We can try to push ourselves to work harder and longer for a time, but this is not sustainable. How do we address this problem, then?
Here are a few ideas I’ve found helpful in this regard:
1) Collaborating: Simply put, two people working together doubles the time available. If you can delegate responsibility, you can get more done. Moreover, if you can collaborate with others, you gain the advantage of their expertise: You will fail less often, and you can interpret your results more accurately and more quickly.
2) Optimizing: A schedule, an outline, a well-designed protocol – all of these things, after an initial investment, save you time in the long-run. I know many people who say they don’t have time to make a schedule. I always want to ask them, “But without a schedule, how do you know?” Similarly, taking the time to test a two-hour version of a protocol that normally takes four is an initial investment, but the reward can be great.
3) Prioritizing: There may be twenty things one would like to do, but it is better to get five things done well than to have twenty failures. Many of us learn this the hard way, and some of us never learn it at all. However, it is truly a skill to know how much you can do, and which things need to be left for another time.
There are certainly many other approaches to using time more efficiently, and whatever works for you should be considered “best.” However, regardless of your preferred method, be sure to make the time to register for the 63rd Radiation Research Society Annual Meeting. You can even submit a late-breaking abstract until July 18th. Hurry up! It’ll be here soon enough.
