Two Minute Drill: Forgiveness is the Only Way to Happiness
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is forgiveness. I am coming to you from the Eiffel Tower, but of course, it’s not the real Paris because I am in Vegas right now. I am here at the Parker seminar and it’s been an absolutely great event.
Last night I was hanging out with a couple of friends having a good time, and having some drinks, and one of my friends made a comment that was inappropriate. It was anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic, and I pretty much lost it and walked away.
As I was walking away, going back to my room, I said to myself “I don’t think I can ever be friends with this person ever again.” I was pretty upset. I woke up this morning and this feeling of anger and frustration came over me then I thought about how much energy it was taking and sapping for me, just being upset at this person and thinking about what it was going to feel like to like not have this friendship.
I’m going to see this person a lot for a long time because we’re both very involved in our profession. I just thought It was too much energy to be angry. I think forgiveness is a better way. I texted her and we just had a conversation, we talked through it, and she apologized multiple times. She said it was a learning moment for her and I appreciated that and I feel so much better.
If there’s someone or something in your life that you’re angry about and there’s an opportunity for forgiveness, do forgiveness because it’s so much easier and it’s so much healthier and it’s so much better for you.
Guys from Las Vegas, from the Eiffel Tower. That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill.
Two Minute Drill: The One Question You Need to Ask Yourself
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is a five-word question. The five-word question is, what will I do differently as I work towards continuous improvement in my life, and in my business? I am constantly thinking about ways to improve. However, it is one thing to think about them and it is another thing to take action.
What will I do differently?
One of the areas where I need to improve is my time management and my scheduling.
For years I have had virtually every single minute of every day booked on my calendar. With some guidance from some friends and some great advice, I have decided to do things a bit differently.
I have changed how I have mapped out my entire day, and now I have time on my schedule so that can work toward projects. I am not just running around like a chicken with my head cut off, Zoom after Zoom, meeting after meeting, visit after visit.
I am going to encourage you to think about this question and take action on it. What will I do differently? Not what can I do differently, but what will I do differently in order to make changes in my life for the better?
So that’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. I’ll talk to you all next week.
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is stretching yourself. I am not talking about the physical stretching of your muscles, I am talking about stretching your mind, stretching your spirit.
Last week I had a conversation with some friends of mine and they talked about big hairy audacious goals.
One of my friends said, “the next thing I want to do is figure out how to make a million dollars in a month.” I was like, what? I don’t even know how to think like that. That thought would have never occurred to me because I have limited beliefs. I have an upper-limit problem.
It was just great to hear this person say that to the group, say it out loud, and this person is a big thinker and a big doer. If anybody can do it, I’m sure she can. It was just really cool to hear and it just got me thinking about how I think about my life and what I can accomplish.
What I want to know from you guys is what is your big hairy audacious goal. What do you want to do that you have never even thought about doing in the past? What can you put in the comments? What can you share with the rest of the group so that we know what your big hairy audacious goal is?
Even if you only get to 10% or 1% of that goal, guess what? That is still an amazing feat. Stretch yourself! That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill.
Please make sure that you like and you share, and continue to follow. Thank you, and I’ll see y’all next week.
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is cognitive dissonance. I have been thinking about this a lot and just to define cognitive dissonance, it is this the state, this uncomfortable, tension-filled state where beliefs don’t align with actions.
How do we change our behaviors?
What is an example of that? Somebody who knows it is really important to work out every single day, stay fit, and stay healthy and yet they hit the snooze button over and over again. Never getting to the gym! I have been guilty of this. I have been guilty of knowing I need to get to the gym, but I hit the snooze button. In fact, I have been wrestling with this concept, um, a lot recently trying to find ways to get through it.
Resolution of cognitive dissonance is either about changing your beliefs or changing your behaviors, and I think at the end of the day it’s probably a lot harder, but probably a lot more important to change our behaviors.
Finding ways to get to that place where we live our best lives, we become our best selves, is probably more in alignment with what most of us want compared to just changing our beliefs like it is not that important to go to the gym.
How do we change our behaviors? Well, it’s about tiny habits, it’s about habit stacking, and it’s about setting up prompts. It’s about understanding how behaviors work, this combination of ability, motivation, and prompts.
I will be talking about this a lot more In future TMDs, but at the end of the day, if you feel this tension, this state of being where your attitudes and your beliefs are not aligning with your behaviors, try to figure out some really quick wins to change your behaviors, to align with those really important beliefs and values.
That’s this week’s two-minute drill. Please make sure that you like share, and follow, and I’ll talk to y’all next week.
Patient retention is a crucial aspect of any medical practice, as it directly impacts both the health outcomes for patients and the financial success of the practice. Measuring the right Key Performance Indicator(KPI) is essential to accurately track your retention efforts. In this post, we will discuss one of the most important KPIs for patient retention: Doctor Discharges.
Doctor discharge is a metric that measures the number of patients who have completed their care plan with their doctor, as opposed to those who have self-discharged. This KPI is crucial in determining the effectiveness of your practice in retaining patients and delivering care. To track your Doctor Discharges, you can use the data tracking system of your electronic health record. Analyze this data on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly basis to get a better understanding of your practice’s performance.
Once you have established a baseline number, set a goal to improve it incrementally. There are several ways to increase patient retention and reduce doctor discharges, including improving patient engagement, providing exceptional patient care, and streamlining processes to reduce delays.
To help drive better patient retention, we have created a free guide: The Retention Revolution. In this step-by-step guide, you will find the 5 crucial key steps to drive patient retention.
