In this episode, we discuss:
-High burnout among new PT graduates and alternative career avenues with this expertise
-Goal setting to establish a foundation for success
-Meditation as a secret weapon to enhance your focus
-Brett’s best advice to a new physical therapy graduate to achieve success
-And so much more!
Brett measures success as taking direct action towards terms that you choose for yourself. Brett reminds us that, “Success is a personal feeling that nobody can give you and nobody can define for you except you yourself.”
For busy professionals or entrepreneurs, the mind can be easily cluttered by a never ending stream of tasks. Brett finds that meditation leads to clarity of mind and a greater understanding of your goals and allows you to, “start taking actions in that direction.”
Organizing time without distractions allows for better management of responsibilities and the potential to streamline productivity. Brett believes, “Habits are muscles too. They are something you have to train and you’ll get better and better at creating habits over time and accomplishing tasks within a refined period of time as well.”
