Most “leaders” react too slowly. They sacrifice performance and results for “loyalty” and retain employees regardless of their aptitude or attitude. That’s not good for your practice and not good for your patients nor is it good for the rest of your T.E.A.M.
Maybe you like your coffee with a bagel, in which case you should stop in to 3 Men and a Bagel, right off of Hamilton in one of the little shopping centers in Trexlertown. The service is quick, the coffee is hot, and they serve Boars Head products. I recommend the Jefferson or a cheese Danish to go along with your hot, hot coffee.
You can probably stroll around your block faster than you could drive to the gym or make it through a fast food drive through at rush hour. This is important because it means you can sneak walks into your day. When you go to the gym you probably get tired and spend a significant amount of time resting between exercises, which means you are not helping to build your endurance. If you take a twenty five minute walk you will probably do more continuous exercise than you did in an hour at the gym.
When it comes to approaching women in public, most men end up way off base of what they really should be doing. You have to be aware that approaching a woman out on the street, in a store, or any other public everyday venue is not the same as walking up to a woman in a bar or a nightclub. If you try to walk up to a woman and open a conversation the same way that you would in any of these nightspots, you probably are not going to get very good results at all.
One College of Charleston student who worked at a popular coffee shop near the college meets famous people all the time. She says that Reese Witherspoon is one of the nicest people you’d ever meet and that she comes to Charleston a lot. In fact, if my memory is correct she got engaged to Ryan Phillipe right here in Charleston at the Planter’s Inn in December 1998. After the couple split up Reese moved to Charleston with her two children, saying she wanted to get back to her southern roots as she was sick of the Hollywood lifestyle.
The only way to have growth is to have a willingness to change. It’s that simple, whether you sell coffee or chiropractic. When stuck in a rut, you have to jump out and try something different.
It’s no wonder it was the grocery industry that first began pioneering the use of barcodes. With so many items to keep track of, it was a natural beginning. There had to be a better way than shutting down for stock taking, and eyeing the shelves to see what needed to be ordered.
