Discipline weighs ounces, regret weighs tons. The title of today’s article is one of my favorite quotes from the since passed business great Jim Rohn. I was very fortunate to be exposed to Jim very early on in my career. His teachings and philosophy have had a profound impact on my private life as well.
Being in healthcare today requires a tremendous expenditure of emotional, financial and spiritual energy.
Not everybody can do what you do. It does take tremendous discipline. But the pay off is huge in so many ways.
The private practice of health care today requires a tremendous expenditure of emotional, financial and spiritual energy.
Jim’s advice for all private practice owners is eternally profound. If you do not own any Jim’s recordings and books, I strongly suggest you make the investment.
What I learned from Jim about discipline, I’ve also seen in practice on a daily basis over many years. We see this with patients, but most especially now as a we see this daily with many more private practice owners.
Another of Jim’s famous sayings that holds true more than ever is “Don’t wish things were easier, wish YOU were better!”
So why the concern about this information today? Quite frankly we are living in a dumbed down world.
If you’re going to be successful in private practice and really move forward in any area of your life you must insulate yourself from the “crap” of the outside world.
So I suggest you limit your exposure to the mainstream media, talk radio, and the naysayers of doom and gloom. As a private practice owner, you are already at the top of the stack of serving humanity.
Make sure your intentions all aligned with your actions. Make sure you set measurable targets for yourself.
Above all, make sure your private practice is engaged in markets which will flourish moving forward, despite regulatory, and government interference.
Vow not to bail.
Never forget your major purpose as a private practice owner.
And that purpose is to continually be serving sick and suffering humanity with better ways every day!
