In the first post for the “How I Work Smarter” series, I called out Dr. Esther Choo (@choo_ek), because she is able to juggle so many interests and responsibilities flawlessly. She’s the principal investigator for a study, funded by the National Institutes of Drug Abuse, looking at a national computer-based intervention for women with substance use and interpersonal violence in the ED; Academic Emergency Medicine‘s first Senior Associate Editor for Social Media; and star presenter. Esther was kind enough to provide her best-practice tips for this ongoing series.

How I Work Smarter LogoIn this inaugural post of the series “How I Work Smarter,” I wanted to share my thoughts and efforts towards working smarter and not always necessarily harder. I have been the Editor-in-Chief of ALIEM since 2009 where I first was only managing myself and now I working with an all-star team of very motivated and capable medical educators in EM. Three moving parts rapidly became thirty moving parts with thirty different deadlines. Here are my responses to the series questions.

New Series: How I Work Smarter

How I Work Smarter LogoWe are all busy individuals trying to juggle various projects, a multitude of responsibilities, and balancing work and home life. “Work smarter, not harder” is often heard to remind us that we should be looking to improve our working styles to be more efficient. It is easier said than done. One place that I have drawn inspiration from is in LifeHacker’s “How I Work” series, which highlights the personal working habits of successful entrepreneurs and leaders.
