Two Minute Drill:

Back to Basics: Key Lessons from Seeing Patients Again


What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is lessons learned. I’m here in one of my locations—our Fairfax office. Over the last several weeks, I’ve been covering the practices because my doctor’s on vacation and we’re in between coverage doctors.

Lessons from the Field


I’ve been covering and learned some important lessons. It’s been a decade and a half since I’ve seen patients regularly, and there were some lessons I wanted to share with you chiropractors out there who are in it. 

The first lesson was that I started every day with a stated intention and made my team do the same. I wanted to hear what their intention was for the day because I wanted to start the day with a clear idea, a concept in our heads about how we were going to act and behave to get the desired results we were looking for. 

The second thing is I was focused. Hyper-focused. There are things that must be done every day. One, take amazing care of your patients. Two, get your notes and documentation done. Three, respond to emails and handle administrative tasks, etc. 

Now, I’m as ADD as they come, but I knew that I needed to get my stuff done and didn’t want to leave it until the end of the day. No procrastination—just be very focused on the things that needed to get done. 

Lastly, having fun. I wanted to have fun with my team. It doesn’t have to be stressful seeing patients. In fact, I said to Cat, “Oh my God, this is so much easier than my regular job.” Seeing patients, doing notes, responding to emails, and having some meetings with the team—it’s not too difficult. 

So, those are the lessons learned. One, make sure you start your day with intention. Two, be really focused on the job at hand. And three, have some f***** fun.
