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…

Making Enormous Tasks Manageable

Tracy, our CEO, is in the process of reinventing Living Every Minute. We want to teach people how to create spectacular in their life and business. We want to bring the best teachings and the best stories from around the world to our tribe. In order to do that, we must learn how to reach more people, how to affect more lives. It is an overwhelming task for both of us but particularly for her since she is doing the lion’s share of the work. Yesterday I helped her to understand some skills I have learned to implement when you have a humongous project. I hope they will help you as well.

What Does the Last Month of the Year Mean for Your Business?

We just spent an amazing Thanksgiving in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We were in our new place with no furniture, so we had Thanksgiving dinner on lawn chairs looking out at the mountains and slept on mattresses on the floor. It snowed and it was beautiful. It was great spending time with family and friends, watching football and being content. Sometimes that makes it hard to go back to real life. But go back we must! We must learn to combine content with ambitious, just the right amount of each for a fulfilled life. Thanksgiving is over so Christmas season has officially begun. I love the season…

Do You Need Help Creating an Awesome Plan for the New Year?

The year is coming to a close. I hope 2016 has been amazing and it's time to plan for 2017 and make it even better. I recently met with a residency director and his assistant for continuing education about giving some lectures to their residents. We asked them about the utility of giving the residents some lectures on the business of medicine since that is what they will face when they finish. His assistant, also a physician said: "Oh! You mean the part of medicine that is set up and run by lawyers and insurance companies? Doctors have no say in that." The residency director then said: "Our…

LOVE, the Greatest Emotion?

How do you love a homeless person? How do you love a child? How do you love a patient? How do you love a customer? The answer to each of these is that we love them by serving them. We love them by taking care of them. We don't wait to "feel" love for them, we take action and that action is a demonstration of our love. Love is an action, not a feeling. Dr. Steven Covey talks bout this the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People where he states love the feeling is a result of the verb, not the other way around. Interestingly the only place that we describe love as a feeling is in romantic…

How to Create the Business and Life You Want While "Living Every Minute"

I have done two FaceTime live presentations and written several articles lately on planning your New Year goals. I hope that you have been paying attention and that it has been helpful. I am going to keep hammering the idea that you MUST create the life you want. You must decide and then create. If you just let it happen, then you get a “just happened to me” life. If you go out and create one, you will have the life of your dreams. You can try to prove me wrong but I’m almost 100% sure you won’t be able to! So what do you need to do? 1. Get crystal clear on exactly…

The Two Skills of Leadership

What makes an entrepreneur do what he or she does? How do you dare to risk everything in order to create something? It can’t just be about the money. If that were it, there are easier ways. What gives you the courage to try against incredible odds? The answer: A little bit of crazy mixed with facts and faith. In the book ‘Thou Shall Prosper’ by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, he talks about leadership requiring both facts and faith. I was fascinated by this idea. A leader must have an incredible grasp of the facts of any situation. If you look at the great leaders in history, they were…

Defining who you are?

One of the biggest challenges facing any business, and particularly a medical practice is to decide what you are and what you represent. What do you stand for? How do you distinguish yourself from the competition? What makes your practice unique and different? Deciding on your values and your purpose is an undertaking that is well worth your time and effort. It is not easy to do. It is not urgent and does not ring or arrive in your email. So if you do not make it happen, it will always get put on the back burner. If you take the time, and if you make it happen, you will find it is…
