What will your practice look like at the end of 2013?
What changes will you make to the practice? Will those changes buy you more free time? A better team? Less headaches? New services? Better clinical care? Better customer service? Better revenues? Better bank financing? Better strategic alliances? More fame?
Or will you simply do more of the same and hope that things will become better over time? Hint: they wont, they usually get worse.
What changes will you make personally in 2013? Will you get in better physical shape? Will you take better care of your money? Will you become personally more organized? Will you become a better partner in your romantic relationships? Will you discover new friendships? Will you get more involved in giving back?
How will you balance out your 6 human needs? Every human being needs:
- Certainty that things will be all right
- Variety so you don’t get bored
- Significance, the concept you are a worthwhile person
- Love and connection
- Contribution to others
Find out where you are weakest and try to improve that area. If you want to be succesful and happy, you must grow and contribute. Otherwise, let’s face facts, you are just mailing it in.
One last thing. Brian Tracy asks a great question, “What has to happen in 2013 for you to say it was an amazing year?” Answer that question and go to work on it every single day of the year. Then it really will be a great year!
