Connection, Vision, and Finding Your Greatness in Your Practice
Welcome to this solo episode! I recently returned from a conference in Phoenix, Arizona, and I have a lot to share with you over the next few weeks. You might ask why a 72-year-old retired dentist still goes to conferences! The truthful answer is that I am a constant learner, relentlessly reading and studying to add more arrows to my quiver in my role as a mentor to others. From the recent conference, a big takeaway for me is the importance of connection in dentistry. Explore this topic with me today!Show Highlights:Humans are neurologically designed for emotional and physical connection.Your patients’ visions of the smile (and lives!) they want—and how to connect with them to help them“Fearless dentistry” is about taking a visionary mode for the future of your practice.Your vision gives motivation and an unstoppable purpose. (Example: Jeff Bezos)Learn to apply the 80/20 principle.The #1 thing for your practice? Learn and master the art of great communication.There is a seed of greatness and a hero inside you!How I realized my seed of greatness in one magical moment in April 1988—and it changed my life (I’ll be sharing this story in a future episode.)Your assignment is to answer these questions: Am I willing to sit back and visualize possibilities and opportunities in the greatest practice I can possibly imagine?
