Turning Obstacles Into Opportunities
Knowing the purpose of your practice allows you to see the larger picture and meet obstacles head on and plan for a successful resolution to problems. Every practice, regardless of size, location or specialty, faces obstacles.
Do any of these potential problems sound familiar?
- Staying ahead of competition from other physicians and specialties
- Planned growth and expansion
- Managing patient outcomes and measuring success of treatment
Once you’ve determined your overall purpose and goals, you become more of a “big picture thinker” – anticipating problems and planning solutions before they occur. If you know where you’re going, you have a better idea of how to get there.
Having a clear picture of your purpose allows you to do your homework and take appropriate action when opportunities present themselves. You don’t circle the drain, studying the problem, asking for more information and letting opportunities pass you by while you “think about it”.
