A few days ago I received an email with a question that I believe resonates with many people in our profession.
Dr. Rob, how can I get the joy back in my practice?
Wow, what an honest question. I believe most Doctors would admit to times where they felt their joy slipping away. As I think about this question, I’m reminded about some key business principles we find in the writings of Peter F Drucker. When I felt my own joy starting to slip, I discovered I was failing in one of these areas:
- Am I managing myself?
- Am I placing myself where I can make the greatest contribution?
- Am I developing myself?
- Am I adapting to change?
Does this help you? Let me know in the comments.
