How’s Your Flow? (Monday Morning Message)

By Sharon Gorman, D.C.

Catchy title, especially for you fellow ladies, but that is not what I meant. I’m talking about your office. This is usually our busiest time of the year and true to form we have been starting a ton of new patients. The only problem is that our overall numbers haven’t been growing. I had to stop and take a look and actually consult myself for a minute. What would I tell me if I was not me but looking at my stats. This is a very interesting way of looking at things for those of you who are looking to serve more people such as myself. What’s the block? Is it me? Is it my CA’s? Is it my associates? Is it my floorplan? My computer program? Is it my vision?

It is important to look at all but it is dangerous to look too hard. I have a tendency to think that everything is wrong and needs to be changed. That is usually not the answer and it will just create a lot of chaos. It takes a lot of honesty on my part to look at all of this because on the other side of the coin, I don’t want to make changes. I just want different results. Might sound like you – huh? It’s hard to move into the future without understanding the past (as much as possible).

So I tweaked things a little. I’m convinced that these little changes are going to make a big difference. Right there is half the battle. I have to give myself permission to break the lock and become unstuck. A lot of why I was stuck is because I believed that I was stuck. Next I need to stop staring at what I might think is not working and time to focus on what I know is working. I need to be in the best shape that I can be so that I can inspire those that work with me to perform at that level too. It is very difficult to function at my best and beat myself up at the same time. I need to forgive myself and move on. I need to do the very best job that I can and then turn it over to God. I am not responsible for the results. I am responsible for the causes. When I can truly turn it over and trust, then I can walk in faith and rest assured that everything is turning out just the way it should – in God’s speed.
