Fearful or Fearless
Jim Collins wrote a while ago that the enemy of great is good. How does that fit for you in your practice?
I subscribe to a blog written by Seth Godin, bestselling author and entrepreneur. In a recent post he wrote, “There’s always a gap between the short-term results of a well-polished system and the first results of a switch to a more efficient one.”
Consider how you choose to implement what you learn at Spear Education. Do you allow yourself R & D time so that you can live with the tension of not doing a new procedure or using a new process to perfection? Can you give your team the time they need to muddle through the learning process? Will you engage your patients so that they can celebrate with you the willingness you show to be relentless in your learning on their behalf?
If you stop short because the discomfort is too difficult to endure, then you may still be good, but will your patients get to experience your greatness?
