If you’re like most dentists, you’ve got a long to-do list. You stare at it and wonder, “How the heck am I gonna get all this done today?” The truth is, you won’t. There just aren’t enough hours in a day to do everything you want to do.
Here’s the problem: you’re giving energy to tasks that don’t really matter. The little things will always be there, like writing client notes and filling out prescription slips. It’s impossible to get everything done in a day, so you might as well put energy towards what you CAN get done.
Try this: start every day with the big six.
That means there are only six big items on your to-do list. Rather than bouncing between a bunch of small tasks, narrowing your list down to six big items allows you to tackle one thing at a time. This strategy will help you focus on what REALLY matters and what will have the greatest impact on your practice. The big six is life changing!
Here is an example of how I start every day. It has changed the game for me.
