The joys of business ownership … we know them all too well, don’t we?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have any trouble at all fitting everything in during half of every 36 hour day. Piece of cake. It always leaves me another 18 hours to sleep, eat, bathe, visit with family and friends, go fishing, play golf, ride my bike, go backpacking, enjoy a dinner and movie out, and those sorts of things. You know, that “balance” thing.
You say, “What do you mean, 36 hour days?”
Oh yeah, we only have 24. Well, that means we have 6 hours each day to do all those other things. How could I have been so forgetful?
The demands we dentists have are heavy and burdensome. Doing it along is usually what happens, as most of us are solo practitioners. It’s tough, and getting loads tougher.
How can you make your life and practice manageable and fun? How can you experience the peace and fulfillment you’ve worked so hard for?
That’s such a huge question, isn’t it? Please don’t believe there are shortcuts. Every successful dentist who has achieved those objectives will tell you it took dedication, lots of hard work, an honest look at themselves, and much more. It was, in fact, the journey of a lifetime, and they would tell you they wouldn’t have had it any other way, despite the hardships. Those hardships defined who they are something they may not have accomplished had they not been willing to dig deep.
As a coach, I help dentists find their path, stay on that path, and accelerate them toward their goals. With a coach, you’ll get there at least twice as fast, as long as you’re willing to take action.
How bad do you want your dreams?
