Two Minute Drill: CELEBRATE

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is celebration. I am here in beautiful Long Beach, California. Today is my father’s 91st birthday and we are celebrating his birthday. It got me thinking a lot about the book that was written by BJ Fogg called Tiny Habits, and he talked about the key elements of building successful habits in your life.

Celebrate the Wins

One of the most important things that need to be done in order to build successful habits is celebrating the wins, celebrating those accomplishments, those tiny little things that you do that get you closer and closer to your habits and your goals.

Whether it’s something personal in your life, like you’re trying to improve your level of fitness, or you’re trying to run your best time in a marathon, or if it’s something in your business where you’re trying to drive improvements and growth in your business, building tiny habits with you and your team and celebrating those little victories along the way, especially when things are not going perfectly well, is really important to keep the momentum going.

I constantly reinforce positive behaviors and things that are driving change in our practices with our team. In fact, we use a technology platform called Bonusly, where we literally celebrate any behavior that aligns with our core values and or our mission statement, and our team has really gotten excited about it. People get points for doing really cool things and living our core values and our mission statement. It just creates a lot of excitement and a lot of fun. It is great to see the gratitude that each one of our teammates has for each other.

Celebrate those little victories in order to drive the habits and behaviors that you’re looking for to create positive change in your business and in your life.

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. I’m going to have a couple of glasses of wine with my family, eat a good meal, and celebrate my dad’s 91st birthday. You all have a great week and I’ll talk to y’all next week.

TMD: How to Create Effective Change Management

Two Minute Drill: How to Create Effective Change Management

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is change management. This week, Kaizenovate, our technology company, is launching our second product into our chiropractic practices Kaizo Health and the things that come to mind for me are all around change management.

Clarity is the Key

How do we do this new product launch effectively in a way that creates the positive impact that we’re looking for, for our patients, for our team, for our practice, and for the healthcare environment at large?

There are three things that come to mind for me in creating effective change management.

#1 Clarity of why. Why are we doing this? What’s the impact that we’re looking to create? How is this second product is going to be a game changer for our patients, our practice, and the healthcare system at large?

#2 clarity of strategy. What does it look like to execute the strategy of this launch? How are we going to overcome the challenges that we face when we’re dealing with technology?

 #3 Clarity of feedback. We have to get feedback from our team as to what’s working well, what’s not working well, and what would they like to see enhanced in future visions, and future versions of this new technology.

It’s all about clarity of why, clarity of strategy, and clarity of feedback in order to effectively manage this change. We’re really excited and we will keep you all posted on the results of our launch. Just remember that if you want to have an effective change in your practice and or your life, clarity is the key.

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Have a great week, you guys, and I will talk to you all next week.

TMD: Preparation is the Key

TMD: Preparation is the Key

Two Minute Drill: Preparation is the Key

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is preparation. Over the last several weeks, it’s been a bit stressful in my life. I feel like I had not been performing at my best and there are lots of reasons for it, but at the end of the day, none of it matters because as leaders, our responsibility is to always do whatever we can to function at our very best, to support our teams, to support our mission, to support our own personal and professional growth.

How did I get Through this?

One, I was able to recognize that I was not performing at my best. The first step was recognition. The second step was forgiveness. I could have spent some time feeling bad about myself or emotionally punishing myself for not being at my very best but that wasn’t going to be productive for me, and I don’t think it’s going to be productive for anyone else.

What must I do? What must be true for me to be at my best moving forward?

That brings us to step number three, which is preparation. Preparation is the key for me. I have been doing a lot of traveling over the last two months, and I think where I’ve probably not done as well as I would like is in preparation for the upcoming week.

This past weekend, I spent a good amount of time thinking about critical conversations that I wanted to have and the way I wanted to have those conversations in order to drive growth. I spent a lot of time preparing and thinking about what these conversations, these meetings, and these one-on-ones were going to look like. As a result, I have had a great Monday so far, and Tuesday is getting started. I am really excited about the day.

I just want to share with you again, if you feel like you are not doing your best, recognize it, forgive yourself, and find a tool, a trick, a way to get past that information.

It was all about preparation because you know what? Winning happens way before anybody sees you in the victory. That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill.

Have a great week, guys. Talk to y’all later.

TMD: My Biggest Gamble

TMD: My Biggest Gamble

Two Minute Drill: My Biggest Gamble, Going All In

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. I am here in Las Vegas, Nevada for the Nevada Chiropractic Council meeting. I got a chance to speak yesterday to a great group of chiropractors, and it got me thinking about gambling and the history of gambling. Today’s topic of conversation is my biggest gamble and how I went all in.

We are Going All In

It started back in the Paleolithic period and the earliest dice were found in Mesopotamia about 3000 years ago. That means that people have been gambling for about 5,000 years. In fact, the earliest dice were made out of knucklebones.

Vegas was formed in 1905, it was a stopover between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. When they decided to build a Hoover Dam in 1931, they legalized gambling here. And the rest is just history.

It got me thinking about the biggest gamble that I ever took in my life. That was in 2019 when I started Kaizenovate the technology company, to build mobile apps for chiropractors. I have never done it before, not a technology expert by any stretch of the imagination at that time. However, I knew something needed to be done, I knew patients needed a digital experience, and I knew that we needed to create a more remarkable experience for patients and meet them where they are, which is on their phones.

fast forward three years later, we have some great news to share. We have just passed the 20,000 patient milestone and we now have 20,000 patients on the app. It continues to grow exponentially and this would not be possible without my amazing team and our incredible customers who have just done a great job sharing this technology with their patients to improve their outcomes and improve the chiropractor’s practice income.

We are super excited, we are doubling down, and we are going all in. We continue to invest in technology and we invest in our future for our customers.

Thank you, guys, so much, I really am so excited about this. It’s incredible to see this growth happening exponentially is really exciting and we are looking forward to more impact in the future.

That’s the week’s Two Minute Drill. I’ll talk to you all next week.

TMD: Passionate Volunteerism

TMD: Passionate Volunteerism

Two Minute Drill: Passionate Volunteerism

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today I’m coming to you from St. Louis, Missouri. We are doing an EOS implementation plan with the leadership team for the chiropractic Future Strategic plan and today’s topic of conversation is passionate volunteerism.

If You’re Not Involved, Get Involved

We are discussing how to implement EOS for the chiropractic future strategic plan. More importantly, we’re talking about things like passionate volunteerism, connection, collaboration, innovation, and how we can actually move the profession forward through these initiatives.

This has been a very powerful meeting thus far, and we are just getting started. However, as we go through the day, we are building even more infrastructure into the plan in order to execute the strategy to move our profession forward. Everything from research to government relations to technology to internal and external communication, communication within the profession as well as communication with the general public and other individuals that can help us move our profession forward.

We’re having a great time, we’re working really hard, and I just want everybody to know that there are people out there who are passionate volunteers, there are people out there just working really hard volunteering their time to move our profession forward to escalate the impact that we create for chiropractic and the patients that we serve.

Passionate volunteerism. If you’re not involved, get involved. It’s fun, it’s impactful, and it can change your life for the better.

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. I’ll see y’all next week.

TMD: Racism. What if it was YOU?

TMD: Racism. What if it was YOU?

Two Minute Drill: Racism. What if it was YOU?

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today I’m coming to you from the National WWII Museum in New Orleans. I am standing next to the statue of Anne Frank. There’s a bench here that has the inscription “Sometime this terrible war will be over. Surely the time will come when we are people again, and not just Jews.”

Speak Out Against Racism

This whole video that I’m taping today, I’ve taped I don’t know how many times trying to express the right words of how I feel and the message that I want to convey. It’s been spurred by Kanye West, now known as Ye, and his anti-Jewish comments. I have such a hard time understanding how someone who’s probably been the victim of racism in their life is a racist and expressing hate.

The most important question that I want to ask you is, what if it was you? What if you were the victim of racism, persecution, discrimination, and execution? What if it was you? How would you feel? History changes all the time and at some point in time, your race, your religion, your sexual identity, your gender, whatever, you could be the victim as well.

I’m asking you to think about this really important question and what you would do if it was you. I hope you would say I would speak out. I would speak out against racism. I would speak out against discrimination. I would speak out against persecution and execution.

I’m probably not doing a great job of conveying how I feel on this Two Minute drill, but I think you get the message. We’re human and racism is just unacceptable! I am asking you to think about what if it was you and what you would do to prevent your people from being discriminated against.

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Y’all have a great week.
