Life is busy—really busy. Have you noticed how time flies, how we can’t seem to get around to things anymore?

     It’s true at work, as well. In health care and in medical education, the demands feel particularly brutal to many—unending patients with complex social or mental health issues and inadequate resources and time to help; a deluge of regulatory and compliance issues; students and residents with their learning, and often their interpersonal, needs; more and more to master and to click in the electronic medical record systems we now use; and the continual explosion of knowledge to absorb.
