Corporations — Friend or Foe?

I recently read a post on Facebook about how horrible corporations are and that they are stealing from society. That corporations are only about profits and that it’s not right that they should be taking so much from society. Those who commented also went on about the evil of companies. No one mentioned where they get their paycheck to pay their house payment or suggested an alternative. It rubbed me the wrong way, but the more I have thought about it, the more untrue it seems to me. While it may be true that corporations are about profits, it must also be true that these profits only come…

How to Make the New Year Spectacular in Your Life and Your Practice

We all know that New Years Resolutions are over-rated. We know that people set them and then don’t follow through. So, what’s the answer? Just don’t set any? I don’t think so. I think the problem isn’t having them, it’s the way we do it. Let me help you to create a way that will make you excited about having new goals, accomplishing them, and creating a spectacular year. First don’t be short-sighted. Going to the gym every day is a goal, but it’s not very long range. Go to the gym to do what? For how long? How will you know when you are…

Attack Your Goals!

Recently, I was cage diving with Great White Sharks off the coast of South Africa. As I sat in a submerged cage watching as the bait of fish heads and a fake seal were floating in the water, anticipation and anxiety were building inside me. I simultaneously wanted to see a shark up close and personal, but at the same time I was scared to death that I might. The water was a cold 55 degrees Fahrenheit, but my wet suit helped some in staying warm. I sat in the water for what felt like hours, but really it was probably only a few minutes. But nothing happened. Everyone I was with had just about…

Providing Amazing Customer Service

There are many mistakes you can make when you start your medical practice that you can recover from. You might negotiate your lease wrong. You might not hire the right staff members. You might not understand your financials. But you can recover from these mistakes with some hard work and adjustments. There is one mistake, however, that your practice cannot recover from, at least not quickly. You won’t read about it in most books on why small businesses fail – because those books focus on numbers. Yet, neglecting to make sure this mistake doesn’t happen to your clinic will…

How to Create a Legacy of Leaders in Your Business

Guiding team members is a fine balance between deciding what I am responsible for and figuring out what they are responsible for. Additionally, when I’m training company leaders, it’s important they understand what their responsibilities are and what my expectations of them are. I spend a lot of time helping, training, and developing leaders because my company will only be able to grow as big as the leadership team I develop. One of the major principles of our company is developing a legacy of leaders. Two Leadership Types that Hinder the Balance … On the far end of the spectrum…

How Was Your Year?

Every year, I disappear for about 4 days. It has become known as “hibernation,” probably because my wife thinks I act like a bear most of the time. I literally go away and cannot be found for 4 days. These are my days. I am not available. I do not answer emails, text messages, or phone calls. I take this time to think. For 4 days! Are you kidding? This may seem crazy, but it has become one of the most important things I do every year. Without exception. It allows me to review how this year went and what is going to happen in the year to come, both personally and professionally.

Taking Total Responsibility for Your Life and Practice

Have you ever felt like you were out of control in your medical practice? Like you no longer controlled how you got paid, what kind of patients you saw, and even felt like you were being told how to take care of patient? I start most of my Medical Practice Success Summits by asking, “What is the number one problem in your practice?” I normally get all kinds of answers- everything from employees, to cash, to competition. After a pause, I inform the attendees that “The number one problem in your business is you.” You must understand this. If I replaced you with someone…

Wonder and the Art of Being Content

Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year. I love everything about the holiday. I love the shopping, the food, the parties, the gift giving. I love Christmas trees and Christmas music. I have so many wonderful memories from my childhood with my family and grandparents. And so many other amazing memories with my own children. There is nothing like watching the kid’s faces as they come out of their bedrooms and see a bicycle under the tree! Unfortunately, as the five children started to move out, things started changing. Christmas was becoming not as much fun. The memories…

The Seventh Pillar of Expertise

There are Seven Pillars of Expertise which you MUST be good at to have a truly fulfilled life. We discussed the Six Pillars in previous posts along with the importance of your Primary Question. Today I will introduce the Seventh Pillar. It is the hardest to explain but also adds the most juice in your life because it's the pillar of adventure. I call it the 007. It means anything that takes your breath away. It is stepping outside your comfort zone. It can be as simple as riding a horse or trying a new type of food, or as crazy as skiing a black diamond (did that today!) or flying an…
