Whether innate, learned, or some combination thereof, habit is crucial at all levels of human functioning. By diminishing the conscious attention with which we must perform our acts, habit makes simpler and more accurate the movements required to achieve a given result. In this way, habit diminishes fatigue and greatly increases our productivity.
For the most part, our habits – our automatic patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting – serve us well. The more details of our daily life that we can hand over to the effortless care of habit, the more our mind will be free for higher level and, usually, more engaging tasks. One of our greatest responsibilities is to make automatic and habitual as many useful actions as we can. By making habitual those things that are necessary but not especially enjoyable, we increase the likelihood that they will actually be done on a regular basis. Exercise, dictating, reviewing lab work, worry may fall in this category.
ABOUT Extra Ordinary Living
Taking their learning from 20+ years in corporate healthcare, Janet Crawford and David Scheiderer, MD formed Extra Ordinary Living, Inc. in 2003 with an intention of helping physicians, other healthcare professionals and their organizations identify possibilities and opportunities, remove obstacles, and ultimately, optimize results.
Usually the first question we are asked, is why Tiberius? Our trivia friends usually can identify the references……yes, Tiberius was the 2nd Roman emperor, and yes, Tiberius is the middle name of James T. Kirk from Star Trek. One of our life mottos and business principles is “to learn from the past, look to the future but live in the present;” thus, Extra Ordinary Living.
As Executive and Professional Coaches, we are trained to listen, to observe and to customize our approach to our client's needs. We provide tools, support, structure and accountability to help our clients unleash their full potential and optimize results. There are so many reasons for physicians in particular to feel disenchanted with their chosen profession, their calling. Having a coach helps them get back in touch with their passion for being a healer.
The best thing about coaching is that it is all about you and what you want. We may share our opinions and give you advice, but it is up to you to pick and choose what you want to accept. We suspend judgment and will support you in your decisions.
As Professional Speakers, our messages are inspirational while imparting useful, practical and memorable information in a fun and dynamic way to help you in your pursuit of authentic happiness, and the enjoyment of deep life experiences.
