Rad Idea: Strategic Calendar Blocks

By Brenda DeBastiani

Being a busy leader sometimes makes it very difficult to “stay on top of everything” and keep a good work-life balance. Conflicting priorities, emails and meetings are my biggest challenges to control.

Placing blocks on my calendar to complete required tasks helps me better manage my time.

I have 30 minutes blocked daily to make rounds with my team and 30 minutes blocked daily to complete charge audits. I have 8 hours blocked on the first Monday of every month to complete regulatory mandated audits (critical result TAT, etc.), and various other blocks as needed. Yes, there are sometimes projects or unplanned situations that require me to work 12-hour days or work 60-hour weeks, but that is now the anomaly, thanks to me using my calendar strategically.

Brenda DeBastiani, MBA, CRA, FAHRA, RT(R), is Director of Imaging at Mon Health Medical Center.
