MMM #1: How Batching Might Save Your Personal Finances
No, I’m not talking about “Batching It” where you act like a Bachelor for a weekend when your partner leaves. What I am talking about is being able to accomplish twice as much in half the time. If you batch your personal finance tasks together, you can produce the biggest bang for your buck – while also spending the least amount of time taking care of these tasks.
What You’ll Learn – Do You Even Batch?
- How to separate deep from superficial work – and how this can benefit your financial life.
- The difference between Time-Batching and Time-Blocking.
- Why it is important to create an automatic financial plan.
- The difference between a Maker’s Day and a Manager’s Day.
- Listeners will find out that I have superpowers, too.

Physician turnover is high, specifically after the first 2-5 years of training. With doctors changing jobs so often, it is important to establish an emergency fund early on (and to consider the cost of leaving a job in medicine).
So today we wanted to dive into why everyone, including us, says you need an emergency fund, where you should put that money, what to use it for, and what NOT to use it for. We are also going to do some real talk on doing the math BEFORE you decide to either change jobs or leave medicine altogether.
