If you are like virtually every other business owner in America, I know one thing about you: You try to do too much. Yep, I said it. You are an overachiever. You work too hard, you don’t like to say “no,” and you try to do everything at once.
One other thing I know about you is that sometimes you fail. Pushing yourself to your limits …[ Read more ]
A PLAN IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE OBJECTIVE on which it is focused. Without the presence of a clear and simple objective, a plan can lead down any path with every chance of arriving somewhere, but very little chance of arriving somewhere productive.
Every plan should start with a simple objective, or set of objectives, and these should be clearly identified before planning commences at which time valuable resources are required of you and …[ Read more ]
The BIGGEST PROBLEM associated with planning is, well… planning. Planning just sounds like a lot of work, and even gearing up to start on a marketing or business plan is likely to be last on your long list of to-dos.
One of the biggest keys to making a plan less daunting and achievable is to avoid the tendency to over-plan. Instead, break the planning process down into simpler, more palatable chunks. This will allow you …[ Read more ]

We as business owners grow through the pressures placed upon us in our positions of authority, and our team members grow in a similar manner.
The entrusting of progressive levels of authority to our personnel allows our team the chance to grow through the pride and challenge associated with being accountable to others, while expanding our own capacity through the delegation of responsibility. It is truly a win-win.
Put some thought into those on your …[ Read more ]
Spitballing is the tossing around of ideas without fear of repercussion or embarrassment. If the idea is good, it sticks. If not, no harm done. It’s my favorite kind of work.
The beauty of spitballing for the physical therapy practice owner is that it provides a safe means through which staff and ownership can be comfortable getting ideas out in the open. This free pass of sorts can work wonders for the quietly creative within …[ Read more ]

Slow and steady wins the race.
In our formative years, this is the lesson we took from the classic fable, “The Tortoise and the Hare.” Go at it hard and carelessly, and while you might gain ground in the short term, the long term may not turn out so rosy.
Take your time and approach goals at a slow and steady pace, however, and you’re most likely to appreciate the results.
Aesop was a wise …[ Read more ]
In the world of physical therapy, the concept of direct access is a relatively new one–it’s a practice that allows clients who can benefit from the expertise of a PT to seek one out on their own accord – no doctor’s note required.
This is a good thing. It empowers people who want pain reduction, improved movement and/or better performance to seek the expertise of a licensed PT without first having to seek the blessing …
