    Growth is inversely correlated to control

    Growth is inversely correlated to control

    In dentistry, we are always working with precision and control over a patient's situation. Having acute attention-to-detail creates a perfectionist tendency in us all, and this trait is critical to achieving great clinical outcomes.

    Now, in a clinical setting this makes so much sense. But in a business and operational sense and a broader life perspective, it can be a real financial and cultural ‘handbrake’.

    Your ability to grow and scale your practice is inversely proportional to YOUR desire for control. In other words, if you desire control too much, it slows you down in your business growth, and your ability to create time for yourself and to create the results you're seeking.

    In this episode of The Savvy Dentist Podcast we pose the question, on a scale of one to ten, how strong is your desire for control in your business and your life?

    Dr. Jesse Green walks you through a very truthful and personal journey that will have you thinking differently within the next 19 minutes and 47 seconds. Press play.

    Do you REALLY want it?

    Do you REALLY want it?

    On The Savvy Dentist Podcast we talk with a lot of really motivated and driven practice owners, who are some of the most talented dental practice owners in Australia.

    There can be a big difference between a practice owner who sets a big hairy  audacious goal … and achieves it! Against an owner who sets an equally large audacious goal … yet does not move towards achieving it.

    There is no magic pill or silver bullet that will allow you to click your fingers and achieve your goals. The truth of the matter is that nothing worthwhile comes without a dose of hard work. In fact, several doses of hard work, let's just call it what it is, right?

    There is a clear difference between doing the best you can … and doing what it takes!  

    Many people say they're doing the best they can, but they might not be doing what it takes to get them to their specific goal. 

    In this episode Dr. Jesse Green describes the 3 areas that can help you identify if you are moving towards, or away from, your big hairy audacious goals. And best of all, allow you to adjust your sails and ensure you get back to focusing on what truly means the most to you at this stage of your life and business.
