#22: Behind the Scenes - How we Plan to Kick Off 2020

Are you prepared to move forward into 2020 with clarity, direction, and focus? By strategising your goals and structuring your time accordingly, you can make every day count and have clarity on how to approach the various requests and demands thrown at you. With planning, you will no longer be thrown off by the ever-changing nature of the healthcare industry and can effectively prioritise what needs to get done to stay on track with what is important to you and your organisation.


Today, I share an update on my work at THC and strategies I am implementing in the new year to support my present and future professional goals and commitments. I discuss my ambitious nature and how I stay organized and focused by mapping out my schedule for 90 day periods. I also highlight my journey with the Business of Healthcare Podcast thus far and how I hope to build the podcast moving forward to help even more healthcare professionals gain insight and enhance their performance.


“Once you get that clarity, it’s like a weight off of your shoulders.” - Tara Humphrey
