Takoma Park, MD (PressExposure) June 12, 2013 -- Four Hour Physician Spurred by two major life-changing events, including the death of a close friend and up close exposure to armed combat, Dr. George Smolinski has revolutionized his life using personal efficiency techniques created from his own imagination and knowledge base. Coupling these with the best information and tips distilled from such resources as "Hacking Work", "Work Less, Live More", and "The Four Hour Workweek", Dr. Smolinski has been able to mold and adapt all of these techniques to fit the needs of the daily life of a physician. By doing so, he has creatively outsourced and managed his life to maximize his time pursuing his passions. Now, instead of working for work's sake, by working smarter and not harder he has optimized his medical practice, his family life, and his hobbies, achieving that goal sought after but rarely achieved: work life balance.
Never one to sit on his laurels, he has now established a website dedicated to helping his fellow medical providers achieve those same levels of personal efficiency, http://www.fourhourphysician.com with numerous helpful resources. One resource in particular is free for anyone and contains his best efficiency tips. Located at [http://www.fourhourphysician.com/time-management-skills/time-management-pdfs/] its known as his "Seven Secret Tips For Efficiency". Also found on the site at http://www.fourhourphysician.com/time-management-skills/hire-a-virtual-assistant/ is his guide to hiring a virtual assistant, a key step in managing the details of daily life. The site also features a blog updated multiple times per week with articles on efficiency techniques, efficiency apps, and other useful information to help others achieve work life balance.
In summary, Dr. Smolinski has been changed fundamentally by these major events in his life and now truly knows the value of every single day. Dedicating himself to maximizing each day has reaped benefits for him personally, and he now takes that dedication to helping his colleagues to maximize their lives by working smarter not harder through increasing their personal efficiency.
I'm an advocate of Google Drive as a key tool to simplify your life, and recently there's a new script for your internet browser now launched to allow automatic saving of images, documents, PDF's, etc from Gmail to your Google Drive account.
On May 28th Digital Inspiration tech blog shared a Google script that provides the possibility of automatically saving Gmail image attachments to your Google Drive. Moreover, it scans older emails for images and pulls them out, helping you avoid sifting through tons of older emails searching for specific images. Also, thanks to the OCR for images supported by Google Drive, you can also search for text inside images.
