Be with the people you’re with!

“By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination.” ~ Christopher Columbus

 
Today’s Challenge:  Minimize the distractions within your control.  Turn your personal cell phone off today – Be sure family has the office number and can reach you in case of emergency.  You will be amazed at what you can get done with out the constant distraction of texts, notifications, and the temptation to check your Facebook/Insta/Twitter.  By the way, this goes for the ENTIRE team (yes, doctors, that would be you, too.  Not just the front desk (: How about keeping a basket in the lab?  Everyone checks their phones in upon arrival, and only removes them at lunch time and the end of the day.
