TMD: “TZEDAKAH”

TMD: “TZEDAKAH”

Two Minute Drill: “TZEDAKAH”

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill! I am down in Orlando, Florida for the Florida Chiropractic Association, which is their CE Makeup Session. This week’s TMD is about the Hebrew word tzedakah, which means charity.

Let’s Support Ukraine

This is the last time the Florida Chiropractic Association members will be able to get their CEs for this license renewal. I had a great morning. I was able to teach with my very good friend, Mr. Brad Cost on the “Ethical Implementation of Technology into Healthcare and Chiropractic Practice” and then also taught a course on “Leadership Leverage”. It’s how to incorporate the appropriate mindset, purpose, and people in the process of becoming better leaders so we can create more impact in the world.

Speaking of more impact in the world, that’s really what this TMD is all about. It’s about the Hebrew word Tzedakah, which means charity. I’ve been thinking a lot about what’s going on in Ukraine.

I’ve been having, you know, my normal life having fun, going to Utah skiing, getting stuck in snowbanks. I’ll follow up on that in a future TMD. At the end of the day, while I am having fun, I also have these feelings of guilt about what’s going on in Ukraine. I know that I want to / I will / we can, in our companies collectively, maybe even as a profession, do more. So we’re committing 1% of our corporate profits just to start, but hopefully even more, to the people of Ukraine, through a variety of different charities, organizations that will provide medical services, care, and supplies. Organizations that will provide food, shelter, and clothing. We have to give back. I feel compelled to give back. Unfortunately, this rings very true of what happened, in the 1940s, when Germany invaded the countries of Europe, a pathological A*****, killed innocent people from 1939 through 1945. It feels to me, very similar. Putin is a pathological A***** and we have to do whatever we can to support the people that are adversely affected by this maniac.

And so, we are doing our parts. I want to raise awareness about that. So, in turn, hopefully, that will stimulate, that will motivate, and will inspire others to do the same. Whether it is $1, a hundred dollars, or a thousand dollars, I would encourage each and every one of you to find ways to support the people of Ukraine because you know that they need us now more than ever. When we look back on history, which has its eyes on us, we will want to reflect back and say, we did the right thing.

So That’s this week’s TMD. It is all about Tzedakah, hopefully in the next few weeks to several months, the world will be in a better place, but let’s do our part to support the people that need us the most.

Thank you so much and see you all next week.

TMD: I Had to Pee

TMD: I Had to Pee

Two Minute Drill: I Had to Pee

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill! Today I am coming to you from the beautiful mountains in Deer Valley, Utah where I had a moment where I was actually alone on the slope and I had to pee. Today’s topic of conversation is testing the water.

Testing the Water

So, I have to pee and I thought maybe I can just go where those trees are and I’ll be fine. Nobody will see me. I can just do my business. It’s nature, you know, no big deal. Well, I took a step into that snow and what do you think happened? I sunk! I sunk pretty deep and I took another step and I sunk deeper and I said, holy S***, I’m in quick snow (like quicksand you know but snow). I quickly figured out a way to get out and realize that maybe I should have tested the water first with my pole.

You know, we do this in business, right? Like, as we build the next version of our app, we’re constantly testing with users, getting feedback; with our chiropractic offices, doing surveys to see how we can serve our patients better; with our team, to see how we can serve them better. We’re constantly researching and testing the waters.

So, next time I decide that I’m going to avoid the bathrooms in the lodges and, you know, pee outside in the great outdoors, maybe where nobody’s going to see me in those trees, I’m going to test the waters. I’m going to use my poll. I’m going to see how deep the snow is. I’m going to make sure that I don’t sink into mountain oblivion.

So, I encourage you, whether it’s your personal life or your professional life, to do small little tiny bets that test the waters to make sure that you’re moving in the right direction. So, that’s it from this beautiful mountain here in Deer Valley, Utah. That’s this week’s two-minute drill hope you guys are having a great week.

We have our webinars coming up this upcoming week, so I’m super excited about it. It is all about, mission, vision, and defining your brand. Make sure you save your seat.

I’m going to try not to kill myself or sink in any deep snow, and I’ll see y’all later in the week.

TMD: Time is Ticking

TMD: Time is Ticking

Two Minute Drill: Time is Ticking 

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill! Today I’m coming to you from Long Beach, California, just kind of hanging out at this little harbor and taping my two-minute drill. Today’s topic of conversation is time. Specifically, time off.

Time Off

I’m here in Long Beach, California, just kind of hanging out, taping my two-minute drill. I’m staying at the Hyatt and just past the Hyatt, is where my parents are, where their apartment is, where they are living in Long Beach, California.

So, I decided I was going to take some time off, come out and visit them and my sister and my brother-in-law and their baby girl, who is my baby niece, who I love all of them dearly. And I will tell you that it’s so important to plan for just time off because we get so busy doing what we do every day, all day, literally for me, at least every day, most of the day working that you just have to plan for time off and let yourself have some fun.

Yesterday, my mom said to me “It was like yesterday when I had my 50th birthday, and I don’t know what happened, but now I’m 83, almost 84”. I resonated with that. I understood that because time is flying. If we don’t literally stop and take some time that we can enjoy our lives and enjoy family and friends and loved ones, what’s the point?

So, my message to you is, to plan for some time off, go have some fun, let loose, do new things, try new things, have new experiences, and then share with me and share with us what you did. That’s this week’s two-minute drill.

And by the way, happy International Women’s Day. Here’s a shout-out to all the ladies out there. We need to continue to fight for equality, equal pay for equal work.

So happy International Women’s Day and take some time off. See you all next week.

TMD: Over 20 Years

TMD: Over 20 Years

Two Minute Drill: Over 20 Years

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill! Today I’m coming to you from Delaware City, Delaware. Last week we celebrated Dr. Allen Huffman, one of our clinic directors, 21-year anniversary with the company. So, today’s topic of conversation is all about longevity.

Longevity

Last week, we were really fortunate because we got to celebrate the 21-year anniversary of one of our clinic directors, Dr. Allen Huffman. It got me thinking, what are the key drivers that made that happen?

So, here’s what I’m going to share with you.

  • Key Driver #1

First of all, it’s first who, then what? It’s the right person in that seat. He clearly aligns with our core values. He is always thinking about the success of the patients, the success of the team, the success of the clinic, and the success of the company.

  • Key Driver #2

Incredible loyalty. Not every moment that we’ve had in the past 21 years has all been roses and butterflies. There have been some challenging times, but he’s been loyal every single step of the way, always standing by my side, our side to make sure that we could overcome literally any challenge that we face.

  • Key Driver #3

It’s about creating the right kind of culture and environment, a supportive, caring, and loving environment to ensure that he actually wanted to stay 21 years and hopefully several more years down the road before he ultimately retires.

So, when you think about creating longevity for people on your team, in your practice, think about the right person, right seat. Do they align with your core values? Make sure that inherently they are loyal and want to get through any challenge with you, whatever challenges you face. Lastly, do whatever you can to create a supportive, caring, and loving environment. That will create longevity for the people on your team.

That’s this week’s two-minute drill. Talk to you all next week.
