Putting The Time Into Your Profession
Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says he followed Malcolm Gladwell’s rule of 10,000 hours. He says those hours got him his place today, but they also made him acknowledge life outside work. He says when he first started out he would spent over a hundred hours a week in the hospital. During that time, he missed some key moments in his eldest children’s lives. He says if he’s honest, he wouldn’t be as good as is today if he hadn’t made the sacrifice, but now that his practice has matured he has made a commitment to get a healthy balance going between his career and his personal life.
Enjoying Precious Time With Family
When he’s not working at all, Dr. Jejurikar spends time with his family. He says they keep his just as busy. He has two teenagers and a toddler. When he comes home he starts the next part of his work, whether it’s taking kids to or from activities, assisting with homework or playtime with the toddler, he is always busy. He says not too long ago he took his two oldest kids to New York for the weekend. He says he doesn’t get much spare time, but when he does, he makes the best of it.
Getting The Proper Amount Of Rest
Dr. Jejurikar makes sure to take care of himself during his personal time as well. He has to keep himself well if he wants to continue to improve in his profession. He decided to go to bed early and get all of his productivity flowing for the morning. He says it’s really important for him to get rest. He notices a difference in his mood and his mental clarity when he hasn’t gotten enough sleep. He says with the extra energy in the morning he can get so much more done as long as he has had proper rest the night before.
