Chiropractic Practice Management: Preparing For A Great New Year

Hello everybody and welcome to Thrive in Five. This is Dr. Dennis Perman for the Master Circle Global. Today we’re talking about getting prepared for the new year and everybody wants to get prepared for the new year. But what most people do is scurry around creating to-do lists, much of which they’ll never get to and the rest of which they’ll do a half a job on. Nope, there’s a much better way to get prepared for the new year and it involves, wait for it, being and doing.

Yes, you’ve heard about this before, but it’s true that who you are determines how well what you do works. Now you’ve heard a lot of derivatives of this success comes from you, not to you. It’s the journey not the destination, but what it really boils down to is it’s how you show up in your practice and your life that’s going to determine your results.

Now, this sounds very esoteric. So I’ve created a simple system called the Six Ps that will help you understand exactly where your energy is best invested. So here we go. The first P is your purpose. Your purpose is a description of who you are and what you want to do. For example, my purpose is to be happy and help other people be happy with positive learning experiences, good health and entertainment. I have complete clarity on whether the things that I do suit my purpose or not. And when you filter things through your purpose, your decision making gets black and white. So the first P of the Six Ps is to develop a statement of purpose.

Now, the next five Ps are your goal setting Ps. The next one is your personal goals. You want to create personal goals in order to show up as the best you possible. For example, how fit do you want to be, how are you going to exercise? How are you going to eat? What are you going to do to create your mental and spiritual fitness? Are you going to meditate? Are you going to walk in the woods? Are you going to read great books and listen to great materials? You’ll have to develop yourself in order to fulfill the rest of your goals and the best way to do that is by creating a great set of personal goals.

The next P is your professional goals. This is where most of us concentrate our attention. How many visits do you want to see in a chiropractic practice? How many new patients? What do you want your team to look like? Do you want to write, run for office? Do you want to create a multi-doctor office or do you prefer a solo act? Creating professional goals is going to give you clarity about what you’re trying to accomplish professionally. Now, this is where most people’s goal setting stops, but there are three more critically important Ps that I want to go into today, so that you’ll have a fully developed goal setting system.

The next P is your people goals. People goals is not goals you set for other people. It’s the goals you set for how you’re going to show up in your relationship with other people. So each year I set goals for how I’m going to show up with my wife and my kids. How I’m going to show up with my partner Bob Hoffman, how I’m going to show up with my team, how I’m going to show up for the clients and members that I work for. I want to make sure that I have clarity about who I have to be in the context of those relationships so that I can do the things I need to do in order to fulfill my responsibilities and then some.

The next P is prosperity goals. How much do you want to earn? How much do you want to save? How much do you want to invest? How much do you want to donate to worthy causes? This is another sadly overlooked area of prosperity because of goal setting, because what we usually do is we just create a number goal, and that’s where it ends. No, there’s all this philosophy and science behind it. So in order for you to set good prosperity goals, you want to make sure to think this through and remember and realize who you are as a prosperous person.

Finally, there are play goals. Now, most people pay lip service to this, but very few people really do it the way it should be done. You want to create a rhythm where you work and you play. If you’ve read the Powerful Engagement, then you know that there’s the stress phase and the recovery phase. And stress doesn’t mean like emotional stress necessarily, stress means emphasis. It means work. It means creation, means doing things. And then once you do things you want to then back off and recover. You want to relax, rejuvenate, replenish, and enjoy.

Now, if you follow this goal setting process where you create a statement of purpose, you develop some personal goals, some professional goals, some people goals, some prosperity goals and some play goals, you’ll be in position to prepare yourself thoroughly for the coming year.

Now there’s one more thing you can do in order to prepare yourself properly and that’s, if you haven’t already, or even if you have, that’s to participate in this wonderful experiment that we have called the Practice Growth Calculator. Now, when I say experiment, the experimental part of it is not what we do. It’s where you learn about what you need to know in order to create the practice that you really want. If you’ve been following our posts, you probably know that we brag about the amazing results that we get. We’ve earned our reputation because we help doctors create tremendous beautiful practices by their own definition. You see, in an identity-based format, thee practice is not the practice of our dreams. It’s the practice of your dreams.

So we use the Practice Growth Calculator in order for you to be able to feed some very simple information in, just four very simple concepts that you already know, like how many days a week do you work? And how many new patients do you attract each month? And how many visits do you see? I mean, these are really simple things. How much money do you make? It’s really simple, but our algorithm and the research that we’ve done will turn that into amazing information that will help you to understand exactly where your energy is best invested for you to be able to create the practice that you really want.

So I’m going to urge you to go to the Practice Growth Calculator. You can just run the camera of your phone over this QR code, or you can just punch in the URL that you see at the bottom here. And if you haven’t done this already, what are you waiting for? 4,000 of your colleagues have already enjoyed and learned from this. And the best part of it is once you initiate this by filling out the growth calculator even once, you’re entitled to a personal consultation with Dr. Hoffman or myself, and that’s where the magic really begins.

Folks, you can have the practice of your dreams. There’s no question about it, but you’ve got to be willing to follow the being and doing formula. It’s who you are, who develops how well what you do works. And this key concept is what revolutionized the coaching process in chiropractic and it will revolutionize your practice as well. Thank you so much for watching. This is Dr. Dennis Perman from the Master Circle Global, signing off of Thrive in Five.
