A Physician's Guide to Mastering Mindset, Productivity & Time - Part 3 [Limitless MD, Episode 87]


Hey, guys! This is Part 3 of “A Physician’s Guide to Mastering Mindset, Productivity & Time.” We went through a lot already in previous episodes. Today, we will delve deeper into behavioral change, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation for habit formation, success, failure, willpower, and the schedule of high-productivity people, among other life-changing topics. This is all good quality information that creates the two-millimeter shifts in your life that will tremendously impact your journey. 

In Part 3, I specifically talk to you about the following: 

  • 3 layers of behavioral change 
  • Outcome-based habits vs identity-based habits 
  • Success and failure, according to Napoleon Hill
  • Why willpower is finite and when you should make important decisions
  • HALT concept in decision making
  • How Charlie Munger and Warren Buffet make decisions
  • Importance of automating your decisions or making them minimalistic 

If you choose who you want to become, you can start creating habits that will get you there. You will experience failure and loss, but that only means you are making progress. And in order to make sound decisions to further advance your progress, you need to understand that willpower is finite. You will only make a handful of really good decisions in your life. Automatize the rest (or make them minimalistic) and get ready to become limitless. 


Willpower and decisions are finite currency. You can’t just make decisions in your life all day long (in the morning, evening and night) and expect that the same willpower or decision prowess will be there.” – Dr. Vikram Raya
