It’s Monday Morning—What’s Your Game Plan In Practice?

What likely separates any private practice owner from ultra success is a fully developed game plan!

Traditionally, a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking and speculation goes on surrounding fall sporting events. Why did some coach do this, what if this player did that, and so on.

Yes, that’s right—they are not afraid to make mistakes and continuously learn by them. The more valuable and achieved the player, the more mistakes they make.

Often, you don’t see them, because only their wins are highlighted. The fact of the matter is that winners in any game or business are IN the game more. When you play more, not only do your failures increase, but your wins increase to a greater extent!

This is a numbers game, which great businesses and sports fully realize. The numbers get better with better quality game plans.

Watch the greats in any sport profession, and the rules are basically the same. If you think about championship teams, they’re always working on their game plans.

Any great game plan includes contingencies, training and coaching systems, marketing, fan-based activities, and rules for expansion!

Your private practice really is no different.

But what likely separates any private practice owner from ultra success is a fully developed game plan worked out with coaches who have experience in the game—the ability to work, and move gracefully on the sidelines.

This is one of the most important, often ignored, key tickets of success. And make no mistake it is a ticket, with a price.

In fact, my coaches have a lot more experience and make a lot more money than I do. For the time being, anyways. This is deliberate. It’s part of Living and Practicing by Design™.

You see, I don’t take advice from people who are less successful than I—I go straight to the top.

Napoleon Hill called this gaining “specialized knowledge”.

And it has always served me extraordinarily well as my private practice game plans become more and more elaborate.

How about YOU? Got “Specialized Knowledge”?

Where are YOUR Patients Getting Their Health Information?

Understand that in private practice one of your biggest jobs is to be a resource.

Like it or not, the vast majority of patients who visit you in private practice expect you to be an authority. They expect you to be an expert on a vast array of topics regarding their health.

In this day and age, this is one of the reasons that patients are willing to pay out-of-pocket for Hands Typing on a Keyboardhealthcare advice and treatment.

This of course, is one of the reasons that some find private practice so difficult and challenging. It is not for the faint of heart because, in private practice, there is no “authority” or board of directors to hide behind. Indeed, for those in health care, like in other segments of society, the barrage of regulatory BS grows every day.

It makes no difference what your chosen profession is. You see, as the third-party system undergoes a literal implosion, society is sicker than ever, and demanding answers. (If you doubt me on this, look at the significant challenges to Obamacare raised by many states.)

But for those in private practice who position themselves properly, this is a grand opportunity. In reality, this is a very pioneering time to be in private practice!

No longer can any private practice owner ignore these facts. So what is the astute practice owner to do?

Well, for starters, understand that in private practice one of your biggest jobs is to be a resource.

More than that, you need to be the patient’s chief healthcare options educator.

The good news, it is not necessary to do this all by yourself.

There are significant resources that are available—including ours—which help you communicate to your patients on a regular basis about a wide variety of health care issues.

This is exactly why our web and social media presence has grown so much. In all our client offices, their patients subscribe to our published health-related materials every day.

This is having a tremendous impact as we now take many calls, emails, and notes every week from these patients.

This is, in fact, one of the biggest reasons that private practice owners employ our services.

Because trying to do this all by yourself can be a nightmare! We are here to help serve you when you are ready.
