Helping the Best Get Better. - Dr. Timothy Benson.
Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) March 07, 2013
"Harvard's Success Psychiatrist" Dr. Timothy Benson, has been featured on CBS Money Watch, is a clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School and founder and CEO of Gamewise Consulting LLC. "Dr. Tim" as his clients and friends refer to him, recently reached the Amazon.com's best-seller lists in 5 categories, with the new Health, Wellness and Success book, “Nothing But Net.” Dr. Benson was recently featured on talk radio show, Money For Lunch. Money For Lunch is streaming internet radio catered to business minded people.
Dr. Tim Benson discussed his best seller book and key ideas on how to be successful. The Money For Lunch radio host, Bert Martinez, asked Dr. Tim Benson why he is coined the “Success psychiatrist”. Dr. Tim responded, “I have been on the clinical staff of the Harvard Medical School for over 10 years and as a result I have been referred many high achievers with specific problems that are not readily addressed, so as a result I work with individuals who have a lot of responsibilities and a lot of demands most of which they really didn’t sign up for. So what I tell people is that I help you master what is uncovered on your way to success and I help you manage what is unexpected when you get there.”
Mr. Martinez went on to say how fascinating it is to see two people, such as siblings, having the same circumstances, parenting, and rearing and yet end up on total different sides of the spectrum in regards to achievement. Dr. Benson then addressed this phenomenon by stating, “What it boils down to is not necessarily the challenges but how you interpret the challenges and what you decide to do as a result of it. The greatest thing we all possess is our perspective and how we use it to get our outcome. In terms of my clients, I tell them, you will always find what you look for. I challenge them by asking ‘what are you looking for?’ The thoughts you choose to hold onto and give value to are the thoughts that will have the greatest impact on your life, so the question then becomes what are you holding onto and how is it serving you?”
Dr. Benson speaks nationally about ‘outperforming yourself’ and Mr. Martinez asked “In today’s crowded market place, where the competition is high, what advice would you give our listeners to give them the edge, what can they do today?” Dr. Benson then joked about how there are plenty of answers and how he could talk for hours on this subject, but his number one answer is the following, “If I could sum up that answer in two words it would be ‘Stay Coachable’. When you look at the highest achievers, they are coachable; they are always trying to better their best. It is imperative to have a beginner’s mindset, stay hungry and stay humble.” Dr. Benson went onto reference Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hour rule of helping one master a skill. Dr. Benson believes this concept of practicing 10,000 hours to master a skill is true to a certain extent. In his field there is a term called ‘deliberate practice’, which is what helps someone become masterful in a certain skill. This concept encompasses three factors: 1.) Have a well defined goal. 2.) Repetition, which references Gladwell’s 10,000 hour rule 3.) Have adequate feedback, in other words, being coached. Overall this concept of deliberate practice, if applied correctly, will help individuals become more efficient in achieving their goals.
