Hey, guys, this is Dr. Mike. Welcome to another edition of BootstrapMD. This is the podcast for healthcare and physician entrepreneurs. I’ve heard from many of you says, I want to start a business. I want to start a side hustle or be involved in investments, but I just don’t have the time.
I’m working 50, 60, 70 hours a week as a W2 barely hanging on. How am I going have time for these other endeavors? I understand the importance of passive income and building multiple streams of income, but I want to get started, but I just can’t seem to find the time. Today is your day.
We’re in luck. We’ve got a productivity expert who also happens to be a physician. Not only a physician. She works for NASA. So I think you’re going to get a lot out of it. She is an emergency medicine physician, critical care, [00:03:00] an aerospace trained doctor. She works full time as a flight surgeon at NASA and works part time in the ICU and the ER.
She’s also a real estate investor. She is the podcast show host of Productivity MD, where she helps other doctors. Find more time and help people free up 10 hours a week or more in one hour. So they can be in their zone of genius. Just incredible individual. I got to meet her a couple of times and just amazing.
And she found the time to come here today. She got a little bit of a cold, but she says she’s gonna, she’s going to power through it. So I think we’ll get through it today. And how are you doing?
Dr. Ann Tsung: Thank you so much, Mike for the kind words and I’m doing awesome. I’m so glad to be speaking to the physicians here to share what I’ve learned throughout the years to get my efficiency 10x, especially after my having my first baby.
I just felt like I really needed to do something. If I were to actually achieve the 5 freedoms that we talk about the most.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: And I didn’t ask you [00:04:00] about this, but I think it’s fair to say you’re actually working on your second one right now. Currently.
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yes. Yeah. I am pregnant currently with a second baby. And I just know that there, I’m always trying to make things more efficient. And really the end goal is to achieve like the five freedoms and to not sacrifice quality time with my kids and my husband, which is why I’ve always been an efficient person my whole entire life. That’s what my friends know me as, but I became like ultra efficient after having a baby, even boosted my productivity was able to start new ventures because I was forced. To do it with the new board.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: That’s amazing. I think you’re just taking on new challenges as they come up to see how much you can do it at one. But I want to talk about your origin story. I’m a bit of a comic book nerd. I love to hear this. The story is how ordinary individuals become superheroes.
You definitely fit in that category. But let’s talk about first about your medical journey. How did you get into [00:05:00] medicine? Were you around other doctors in your family? How did that get started for you?
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, I think first, Asian families always want you to be a doctor or a lawyer, though behind that was a strong push or pull, not just from my mom, but we, I was born in Taiwan.
I moved here when I was nine years old in fourth grade. It was just my mom and I, because they were divorced when I was a baby. So my mom worked really hard seven days a week as a waitress at IHOP, at other Chinese restaurants sometimes working till 2am because she wanted to take the night shifts and she had been robbed after those night shifts of her tips were all gone.
It’s probably at that time was like maybe 40, 50 bucks, but it was everything to her at that time. So there was also that push that we, I cannot fail her. I cannot fail this family because we’re all each what each other has essentially. She’s all I have and I’m all she has. So I cannot fail this.
So, [00:06:00] and I had, I talked to my high school Chinese teacher who spoke to me about medicine. It is the one career where you’re really, truly helping people every day. I mean, at least your true intention, right? There’s logistics. You can talk about medical administrations, the charts and everything.
But it really overall, you go into work and you’ve helped somebody every day. And that’s what pushed me to succeed. That’s what pushed me to have maximal efficiency so that I can succeed and be as productive as possible while making mistakes along the way, of course.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: And where did you go to medical school?
Dr. Ann Tsung: So medical school at UT San Antonio. University of Texas, San Antonio residency at University of Florida in emergency medicine.
And then I did anesthesia, critical care at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Then the aerospace medicine fellowship, which came with a master in public health. And that’s a University of Texas in Galveston. And they have very close ties with [00:07:00] NASA. And I knew I wanted to work for NASA and go into space medicine since I was 19 years old.
So it was always going to go into that route, no matter what specialty I picked anyway. So after that applied to NASA and because the residency or the fellowship, the aerospace fellowship was essentially like a, almost like a two year interview. So people get to know you. You do rotations there. And it was awesome that I finally got the position there.
I think when I calculated it, it was about 16 years after 16 or 17 years after, yeah, 16 years after I set the goal to be a NASA flight surgeon. And finally I got there and I’ve been there for two years now.
As a doctor, I wasn’t used to asking for help, especially when it came to subjects outside of medicine. But then I found physiciancoaches.com. In an instant, I found hundreds of experts to help me in all aspects of life on areas. I was afraid to ask [00:08:00] dealing with burnout, starting a side gig, money management, even help with my marriage.
And the best part, nearly all experts are physicians themselves. After reading their profile and a quick chat, I knew I found the right mentor for me at physiciancoaches.com. Help from professional colleagues is just a click away.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: So this is very intriguing. It’s not had a common occurrence. We’re here of a doctor interested into space. You said at an early age, you were very fascinated by it. What in particular in space really made you interested in choosing this as a career?
Dr. Ann Tsung: I think most people think overall, it’s just such a cool thing, such a unique thing. Since I was little, I read encyclopedias like people. I think friends and family bought me encyclopedias when I was five years old of just photos of planets, the earth, et cetera, space in general.
And then moving to Houston when I was in fourth grade exposed me to [00:09:00] the space center Houston. So I was even more fascinated. And now I think it is just an awesome place to. It’s a good balance from ER and ICU. The stressor is way less. You don’t have high cortisol your entire shift and also it’s interdisciplinary in a crazy way with other biomedical engineers with radiation, with people like working on power, people working on like satellite communications and things like that.
And everybody is so dedicated. Everyone pretty much has a PhD and is an expert in their field and everybody is very detail oriented and resourceful and just like everyone is type a basically and it’s like interdisciplinary teamwork on steroids.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: And I know we’re going to talk about productivity and helping our audience to shape off more hours out of the week, but I want to know more, a little bit more of like your day to day, [00:10:00] because it’s so fascinating and I don’t have a usual guest who they say it isn’t rocket science, but in your case, it truly is.
So tell me for example, what are your duties that you do at NASA?
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, and even amongst like the 30 plus flight surgeons, we have each of our duties are can be different depending on what you’re assigned to. So I can tell you my current duties. I am the deputy surgeon for 1 of the astronaut who is currently on the space station right now.
And then my colleague is a prime surgeon. Each assigned astronaut going on a mission gets two surgeons, the prime and the deputy. So my main job right now, she launched about almost a month and a half ago. So my main job right now is sitting at mission control at Johnson space center, working through the meetings, talking to her, doing private medical conferences, ensuring that she is in peak performance.
This is why human optimization. I love it as well. And I get to do on my actual career. Peak performance, she just had a [00:11:00] spacewalk actually two days ago. So you staff the spacewalk, you make sure she’s ready before and after. And there’s just a lot of meetings, different types of meetings that discuss operations throughout that you attend.
And also you are coordinating with European surgeons, Japanese surgeons, Russian surgeons, because all of them are on the station right now as well. Some other duties I am also assigned to, it depends on the projects or like vehicles you’re assigned to. So I’m assigned to international space station, but other people are assigned to human landing system to gateway to Orion capsule.
So they work on those meetings separately as well. And I work on space flight associated or ocular syndrome. So I am like the CNS lead, central nervous system lead for that on this side. So it’s variable overall. You would just make sure crew is healthy there and can perform well in tip top shape, peak performance.
And you [00:12:00] give inputs to other disciplines in the mission control, depending on if there’s any health risks or any health inputs. And that you give future vehicles, spaceflight systems, your inputs on the design and how to make sure that the human have what they need in terms of equipment and medical medications, et cetera, et cetera.
So that is a. And you go to launches and landing if you’re assigned to a crew. But that’s a very brief summary of what it’s like. Lots of meetings.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: I love it. I could probably talk about this or just pick your brain on this for hours. My science nerds brain is tingling, but I want to talk about this because you talked about optimization, which leads into productivity.
You said you always been productive. Your friends tell you, you’re most productive individual they know. So what led to deciding I think I’m going to coach others how to be more productive.
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, it’s so funny [00:13:00] because when I initially started my coaching, it was like I, I coach on peak performance, human fulfillment, which I want you, I want people to be productive and be fulfilled at the same time and not just do busy work.
And so it’s very broad cause I do like functional medicine in a way. Like I love like the concept food is medicine. I also love weightlifting. So there’s that component, but I needed to, I felt like I needed to niche down, figure out one zone of genius. It’s really broad. It’s not very clear. So that’s exactly what I did.
I took the high five test. It gave me the top five, my top five straight. And then I just asked my friends, because sometimes when you are so good at what you do, it becomes natural and you don’t think it’s any different. Actually, because I can do this and this and this and this and this, but when I asked my friends like, Hey, what is the one thing that you would recommend your friend to come talk to me to or what is that one quality that you feel like I can share with the [00:14:00] world that I can benefit the world or what that you would come ask me all the time or the first word you think of and like probably 90 percent except for like one person said efficiency and productivity.
So essentially, whatever goal I set, I will get it done and multiple things at the same time, too. And I will get it done.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: That’s great. That’s amazing. That’s what led you to NASA and said, that’s my goal at the age of 19. So our audience, mostly physicians, we do have other health care professionals, dentists, nurse practitioners, et cetera.
And I know this is a current population that you’re familiar with, obviously. Do you, are there any like traits or qualities of these that you can maybe help pick out? Because the reason why I mentioned it, I remember talking on a physician on the podcast and this one physician kind of pushed me one way talk about productivity.
They said, you know what, we’re already high achievers. We need to, we got into medical [00:15:00] school and we, most of us graduated hopefully. And then we don’t need to be more productive. So what do you have to say to someone like that? Who perhaps dismisses the benefits of being more productive?
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, I would say productivity is not just work productivity. I would say that productivity is being able to achieve your dreams. Things that you always wanted to do as well, not just in the back of your mind and you being able to take action without sacrificing your other aspects of your life. Your other wheels of your life, like your family, your own health, your spouse, if you have kids.
And so people can be productive. I’ve seen many physicians who are productive at work and they don’t have time to spend with their kids. They don’t have time to work out. They feel stressed. They are stressed about the stuff at in the house as well. They feel like they’re just the productive at work.
But they’re actually just going on a hamster wheel and just reacting to life instead of being [00:16:00] proactive in life in all aspects.

Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah. So we just had a call, a coaching call last night. And we [00:17:00] had a physician who says, I’m working really hard. I’m working in the hospital. I’m doing everything I can. I want to start a side venture or just be involved in other things. And I currently, my career doesn’t allow me to do it. And it’s, it was almost like you gave up, gave it.
So what do you, how do you first start addressing that issue with them where they feel like there’s, it’s impossible. I don’t have any time whatsoever.
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, absolutely. It’s very common. People want to do real estate. People want to start, maybe their own practice or people just really want some time for themselves to work out, but they feel like they’re trapped.
So I think you can’t you will have time. There’s always cuts of time. It just needs to be examined and prioritized. But I would say that also regarding the time you’re never stuck. You’re always free. You have the freedom to choose where you work, who you work for. You are never stuck. That’s a mindset of scarcity, right?
This is the only job for me at this hospital, even though I have to take like maybe a toxic atmosphere or [00:18:00] a scheduler who doesn’t care. It’s so funny two days ago, I had a coaching client. I asked her, Hey, can, she wants to spend more time with her parents. And her kids, and she thinks that she only has one weekend a month to schedule out.
But she said, I said, what can you just pick one weekend a month? She’s an ER physician, one weekend a month, January, February, March right now, and set it with your kids and your parents so you’re good to go. And then so she said, no, I can’t because I have to wait for my schedule to come out that you are scheduled.
And I was like, can’t you just tell your ER that you cannot work this weekend now and do not schedule you. And it was so amazing that she had never thought about that before, because we have been just so ingrained in our head since medical school days, since residency, since fellowship, that our schedule is our schedule and we have no choice and we just have to take what’s given to us is and I see that so common.
It’s not. It wasn’t just her, but I’ve seen it multiple [00:19:00] times where I say that and they say, Oh, I never thought about to request like a specific day off of the week or a month and we forget our boundaries. And we forget how valuable we are, and so we forget that there’s actually an abundance of opportunities out there for those people who feel stuck.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah, it is amazing when we see that. I remember working with doctors, and this one doctor said, she’s a radiologist, that she’s been miserable. Why are you miserable? She says, the best part of my day is when I get to go home, and the worst part of the day is when I wake up. And I go, and she says, then it sounds like you’re in a job that’s miserable for him.
And she said, yes. And I said, why are you in that? I have a lifestyle that I need to lead, or I have pays very well. And they don’t realize is that they do have choices and they have options. And they’re most likely in their business or in their medical practice. They’re probably the ones making the most revenue for that [00:20:00] practice.
So, I don’t know why we’re unable to raise our hands. Like you said, it is probably ingrained. From just pleasing others and but they do have choices. So when you work with a client, maybe you could talk about what are some things that you look at and what are like the next steps you do to define time in their schedule that they can devote to themselves.
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, I think this is I can quickly summarize the steps when I intake a new client. The first is we’ll create a life vision of where they are when they’re 85-90 years old with full vitality and full health and mind capability. What they’re doing? What they’re contributing to with their hobbies? What they’re learning?
Who they’re spending their time with? Where they’re traveling to? What businesses do they have? What residual income do they have monthly that’s coming in? What businesses have they sold? And just what are they, what impact are they having? And then we backtrack to about five to five goals for the [00:21:00] year.
That’s going to take them to that vision and start eliminating anything they’re doing now that has nothing to do with life vision. So what’s the point of doing it? You’re just wasting your time. And then we take a look at the time audit of how they’re spending their time hour or by activity through the week and then we see which one is in their zone of genius, which one needs to be automated, which one needs to be eliminated and delegated.
And then we keep it just depends on each person’s level because it’s one on one and super customized. And then we figure out solutions. We enacted, we come back in 2 weeks and then we just get things done at a way faster pace when you actually have accountability. So that’s a very short summary of what we do.
And then we talk about a lot about delegation, which is huge because like you, the trait, another common trait is sense of control and need for control.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah. And the other thing too, is what do you see as like productivity [00:22:00] wasters? I can surmise. I remember like the one doctor was telling me he’s so busy and he has no time for his family and kids, yet he’s telling me all about the shows he binge watched on Netflix and tells them about the storylines and everything like that. Probably not the best use of your time. Social media also is another. Have you noticed some areas that we need to be aware of that? Maybe we’re spending too much time and not really helpful in our own life.
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yes, yeah, agree. Social media is huge. I know a lot of physicians I’ve talked to or people in general, they scroll through their phone right before bed and have it before bed. They don’t have blue blockers on, so they have no melatonin. They don’t feel sleepy, but their body is tired. Another thing is not being intentional with their goals of the day and not being intentional to time block.
Those non negotiables, right? Why do you give your worst self in the afternoon to your kids and family? Why not your best self like in the morning to your kids and family? Just so first is time blocking those non [00:23:00] negotiables, which for a lot of people they said is their kids and family, but they don’t do it.
They actually. They don’t block off time and they schedule meetings and work through that time. And then when they have spare time, which they don’t, you don’t, you won’t find it if you don’t set it that you don’t get time with them. And then number 2 is always set intentionally the night before your top 3 priorities for the next morning.
So that the next morning, when you’re in your golden hour of productivity, you set them in order, rank them 1, 2, 3, the hardest thing, the thing that takes the longest, the thing that you don’t want to do, the thing that requires creative and deep work. That’s what you do first. Most people do. I don’t know, check my email or make a call, make an appointment or something like that.
That’s something quick. And most people, because they could check it off. That’s the it doesn’t move the needle of your 5 goals and we’re doing busy work and I’m not moving the needle.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: What is your opinion of productivity apps? I made a statement and this is probably because I’m a [00:24:00] bit of a nerd in terms of product. I think nerd like retouched, but that’s true in terms of like productivity apps. And if you’re asking, what’s the best productivity apps? And then what I realize is that, this is my opinion so I’d like to hear yours. I spent too much time being unproductive searching for the perfect productivity app.
So I’m curious what worked for 1 person probably doesn’t work for another. But what do you have to say about productivity apps?
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, I definitely use apps to decrease distraction. And I can tell you, I don’t use that many not apps, they’re extensions, actually. Number one extension I recommend everybody gets is Gmail extension. A Chrome extension for Gmail.
It’s called Inbox When Ready. So once you have that extension, when you log into your Gmail, you don’t have that fear of getting distracted because you are going to because it just it’s blank until you press the button show inbox. So that way when you have important emails to respond to or compose, you just search for that [00:25:00] email or you just compose without getting distracted by all the other emails.
And then later when you’re ready, when your top three priorities are completed, then you go in there and then you press show inbox and then batch check just twice a day. Number 2, in terms of apps, I used to use a Pomodoro timer for 25 minutes and 5 minutes. I don’t do that anymore.
I use brain.fm. It’s a special music that essentially you can pick for focus, deep work, creative work, or sleep or relaxation. It has a timer on there. So I do a 60 to 90 minute flow session work session, and I just time it. And when the music stop, it’s time for me to get up to go look out to white space. So that’s what I use now, because I find that I can focus longer than 25 minutes.
Now I’ve trained my brain to not get distracted. Other things about tech and app, I actually I don’t have any. I know there are apps that restrict like your, you go into other websites and there’s other extensions that do that. I [00:26:00] think, I guess, I’ve trained myself enough to not have to do that, but I can imagine that can be helpful.
And then the one thing is phone set up for those of you guys. If you, I don’t know if you’re going to be able to see this on video. I could send a screenshot, but my phone is always black and white. And I could have a shortcut set. If you just Google how to set your phone on grayscale, I can turn it to color just with three clicks on the side button when I need to look at photos and video.
So basically it’s a dopamine desensitization. You want to progressively desensitize your brain to any dopamine colors. So the colors are gone, you’re not distracted. I have no badges, no notifications, nothing on lock screen, nothing that swipes down on my phone and everything. All of my messages and email are on the second screen, not the first screen.
And everything is grouped into something called inbox and I batch check it twice a day. So I would say it is actually your internal. It’s training your [00:27:00] mind and training to discipline your internal distraction. That’s probably going to get you the most productive and that but the technology will help you there.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Oh my god. That’s amazing I’m looking at my phone and my problem is I got a zillion apps and I have to go through 10 different pages even to make a phone call. That’s how bad I am unproductive on my phone. And then the inbox extension, I got to try that too, because I do, as soon as I get Gmail. I live in fear that I’m going to get sucked into something, but it’s..
Dr. Ann Tsung: It’s a test every time, right? It’s oh my God, I’m going to fail when I log in or I’m going to pass. So just take it away and just don’t even seriously, when you log in, you’re going to have like relief. You’re not going to always have that anxiety because it’s just..
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Yeah, well, I know you’re productive, but I want to respect your time, obviously, to the productivity expert for someone who is having feel that they’re [00:28:00] not productive. You are a coach. Maybe you can talk about what, how does a productivity coach, how can they help you? Intuitively we understand it, but for someone who reaches out to you, what can they experience? And maybe you can share like a success story for someone who’s worked with you.
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, I would say what you can expect. We talked about the life vision, discovering your five strains, your time audit, and then how to automate, eliminate, delegate, and have action plans. So I would say as an example, before it was very unclear. Like I have some clients who are very unclear, have 10 goals on their list and they want to do this and jump multiple steps and do this.
But the most immediate goal and the next action step is actually not there. And it’s not specific. Oftentimes it’s not very specific. Like I want to invest in real estate. Okay. By when? How many units? How much do you have? Do you know your finances, et cetera? Or I want to start a coaching business though. Okay. Who’s your avatar? Like how niche? Or [00:29:00] why do you want to teach on that subject? Where do you want to take this?
So essentially coaching can get you to be ultra specific and get you the next action step. Within two weeks, we follow up. Make sure you completed it. So we have Q quarterly goals that we meet. And oftentimes my clients find that. One of my clients, she had her five goals, but within 3-4 months, she already achieved three of them. So she needed a new goal. So you should have five goals for the year. But within 3-4 months, she hit three of them already.
So we essentially, what coaching does is give you your time back and quicken up the pace to your dreams and your goals. And we also not just talk about optimization, but also what you’re eating, your workouts, your mindset, everything that’s going to. That it’s all, it’s an entire spectrum. It’s not just systems and knowledge, but it’s an entire spectrum of your mind, body and technique to get you there.
So that’s why I say it’s peak [00:30:00] performance, human optimization and productivity all at the same time.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: That’s awesome. And if you happen to be an astronaut, I want to be on the ISS, you’re probably the person we need to talk to. If that is your goal, who knows? You never know who might be listening.
And this has been great. I know we’re going to have some resources in the show notes, but if somebody wanted to read, to reach out to you, possibly learn about your coaching and what’s the best place to go.
Dr. Ann Tsung: Yeah, I would say, they can go to productivitymd.com. If you’re interested in learning more, what the coaching is, you can book a 30-minute complimentary discovery call with me and I have some resources I can share with you guys.
Cause I talk about automating, delegating, eliminating a lot, and especially delegating, like I have some resources on how to create somebody create slideshows for you. The person I use. Resources are where I found my virtual assistant or a virtual professional and what kind of example tasks have I had them [00:31:00] do for me so you can get inspirations and I will have resources of the house manager that I have and all of their roles and responsibilities.
So just reach out to me. You can book a call with me and that I could share those resources with you so that you can just take that away and actually start enacting some of those resources.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Oh, and okay, this is tremendous. We’ll need to get you back on the show. You can go to productivitymd.com to reach out. We’ll share again the resources here in the show notes.
Thanks again for joining us. Any last minute thought before we end the call today?
Dr. Ann Tsung: And actually, I’ve wanted to mention as well. So currently the podcast has a lot of free knowledge. It’s right now call it’s not Rocket Science show, but it’s transitioning to Productivity MD very soon.
So you can search for both depending on the timing when you listen to it. It’ll pop up show notes are on productivitymd.com. And you can find me on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn at Ann Tsung T S U N G M D doc, just [00:32:00] MD and really for the clients right now, for your audience right now, I just want to say that, inaction leads to dreams killed.
So what I’m saying is that no matter, just don’t listen to this podcast. And that’s it and be done with it. Just absorb the knowledge without action. I would urge you to no matter what either download Inbox When Ready or maybe do a time audit or what is the non negotiable time block. You’re definitely going to spend time with your wife and kids or your husband.
Or when’s the next date? Now you’re going to plan. Do something because then finally, you will actually be able to get to your life vision. Get to your dreams and don’t ever settle just because you feel like you’re stuck. Don’t ever settle. Feel like you have no choices because of the lifestyle, because you can have an even better lifestyle doing something you love.
Dr. Mike Woo-Ming: Again, love it. This has been an action packed, power packed [00:33:00] episode. Appreciate all of the resources. Thank you again and for joining us on the podcast today. And thank you the listener for joining us today. I’m sure you’re going to get a lot of those resources. Check those out. Check out the inbox extension, the focus, all that stuff.
That’s great stuff. And as always, you’ve got like lots of different goals, maybe too many goals. If you can just pick one thing that, that, you know, empowers you, makes a difference in your life. Do one simple, one simple thing every day to get you closer to your goals and keep moving forward.
