ARE THERE THINGS IN YOUR PRACTICE THAT YOU WANT TO BE BETTER?
Maybe your income, or case acceptance rate, or number of new patients, or profitability, or stress level? The only way you can change is if you take action and do things differently. As you know, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, yet expecting a different result.
Here are some keys to taking action that have helped me make changes and achieve success in my practice.
1. TAKE ACTION IN SPITE OF FEAR.
One of the major keys to your success is your ability to take action in spite of your feelings of fear. Major decisions that we need to make often cause fear. These feelings can cause us to “freeze up” and not take the action that we need to take. Every dentist is confronted with decisions that can be frightening. It could be a decision to add a new treatment room, or expand your office, or add an additional employee, or fire an employee, or hire an associate, or open a new practice, or hire a practice consultant, etc. Taking action in spite of fear is crucial to your success because the more action you take, the more results you achieve.
