How to become a better Sports Therapist even if you don't have much time

Updated: Mar 4, 2020

Finding the time for self development can be challenging...


I personally didn’t realise how much time I was missing out on. It used to be a constant battle with trying to manage workloads, writing patient notes, booking patients in, organising future events, replying to emails, the list goes on... and at the end of it I hadn’t even started to look at my CPD, it read that blog or listen to that podcast.


That was until...


I set a-side 10 minutes per day to improve myself (or a total of 60 minutes per week, yes I was allowed one day off!).



So below is my list of activities that you could select from in your 10 minutes of self-development time, so that you can start to make a habit of becoming a more successful Practitioner.


Here we go...


1. Read a Journal article

2. Highlight key points in a Journal article

3. Interact with Practitioners on social media

4. Ask other practitioners how they would have treated a patient from your clinic (obviously maintaining confidentiality)

5. Discuss a case study with your team

6. Plan your next three social media posts

7. Write a plan for your next blog

8. Seek out high quality YouTube videos that can inform your practice

9. Listen to 10 minutes of a podcast

10. Check your patient notes are up to date

11. Check your finances are up to date

12. Research a new product you are thinking of buying

13. Give your mentor a call

14. Read an expert opinion blog

15. Write in your planner

16. Organise your emails

17. Set yourself clear goals for the rest of the week/month

19. Make a small change to your website

19. Revise musculoskeletal anatomy of one joint

20. Plan your upcoming CPD

21. Review your business plan
