In this week’s TMD I am coming to you from Pensacola Beach, Florida. Since I am taping on New Year’s Day, today’s topic of conversation is about setting 2022 goals.
Clarity Equals Success!
I have to admit that I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. I am a big fan of setting written goals.
The way we like to do it at Kaizo and Kaizenovate is to set the goal, the big audacious goal, and break it down into quarterly rocks. So, every 90 days we build towards that goal we want to achieve for the year.
Within those 90-day rocks ask three to five HOWs. For instance, if we want to increase our new patients at Kaizo by 20%, howare we going to do that? The answer may be, I am going to build a sales and marketing strategy. And howare you going to do that? I am going to set up a meeting with my team and ask everybody to bring their best three ideas to build the sales and marketing strategy to increase new patients by 20%.
I just asked HOW a few times but you can drill even deeper. When your team gets together and you set your goals for 2022, make sure that you ask them, they ask themselves, and you ask yourself the three to five HOWs. When you do that, you will get very clear on howyou are going to accomplish a goal. Clarity equals success!
It’s going to be a great year!

This week Dr. Jay is coming to you from Virginia Beach for the Two Minute Drill. His good friend Brad Cost is playing cameraman as they were attending the UVCA convention. In this week’s TMD we are talking about beauty and the need to celebrate achieving your goals.
Take time to celebrate
Look at this beautiful beach and beautiful ocean, at this amazing setting in Virginia Beach at the UVCA convention.
What Dr. Jay is trying to convey to you in today’s Two Minute Drill, is when things are beautiful, when you are doing great things, when you are achieving your goals, take time to celebrate.
One of the most intelligent brightest behavioral scientists, BJ Fogg, talks about the importance of celebrating victories and building great habits. So, every time you build a habit in your practice or your life, celebrate the fact that you have achieved the goal.
Take the time to smell the roses people!
Celebrate the victories and you will not only be happier, but you will build in even more great habits that achieve even greater levels of success.
That’s this week’s TMD. Head over to our Facebook page and let us know what you are celebrating this week.
Well, Dr. Jay got called out by one of his best friends after last week’s TMD. Make sure you listen to this week’s video to hear why.
Setting clear expectations
Setting clear expectations and working with your team to meet and or exceed those expectations is the theme of this week’s Two Minute Drill.
Last week Dr. Jay was called out by one of his very best friends because his two-minute drills were going over two minutes. While he and his friend had good banter back and forth, at the end of the day he was right. Dr. Jay was setting an expectation and then not delivering.
It got Dr. Jay thinking a lot about how he sets expectations with his team and all the coaching he has received to help set clear expectations and then work with the team to meet or exceed those expectations. So, here are three steps that we think you will find helpful.
Step 1 – Make sure the expectations you are setting are clear in your mind and you know exactly what you are trying to achieve.
Step 2 – Communicate very clearly about that expectation but also discuss with your team the resources that may be required in order to achieve that expectation.
Step 3 – Lastly, make sure you gain verbal or written commitment from your team, maybe even in the context of setting a goal. Either way, gain commitment from them so that everyone agrees at the end of the discussion we are all on the same page, we are all rowing the boat in the same direction, and we are all aligned in either meeting or exceeding that expectation.
In summary, be clear with yourself, communicate clearly and understand the resources required, and lastly gain commitment from your team so you can either meet or exceed the expectation that has been set.
Hopefully, Dr. Jay has met your expectation for this week’s TMD. Head over to our Facebook page and let us know what you are going to do this week to set clear expectations for your team.
