Turning plans into actions and results

Turning plans into actions and results

It is ‘easy’ (easy, especially with our help) to plan what you want to achieve, set goals and outline what your dream life and practice looks like. Then comes the harder part…translating the dream vision into reality.

Are you offering the best care?

Are you offering the best care?

This month’s topic was inspired by a combination of a meeting I had with a physio in Johannesburg and subsequent chats with some of her patients.

What is your blood type?

Does your practice need an Indian summer?

Over the summer holidays practices tend to have some quiet periods giving practitioners the chance to catch up on either much needed rest or projects that have fallen behind in the day to day busyness of running a practice or indeed a combination of both.

Are you living in Lalaland?

Are you living in Lalaland?

  The recent blunder at the Oscars provided the perfect title for this month's newsletter. It got me thinking about how many small business owners don't have their finger on the pulse of their business, going from day to day, week to week and month to month with no clear idea about how the business is doing financially.

Busy Bee or Productive Paul?

Busy Bee or Productive Paul?

  We all know the Bees' and Pauls' of this world. How is it that we all have exactly the same number of hours in the day and yet some people get so much more done?

Hard or Soft Exit?

Hard or Soft Exit?

Whatever one feels about the Brexit debate, to many it has become apparent that many of our elected representatives lacked a plan for dealing with the result we got. As Painless Towers deals with its own momentous decision to leave, we hope we can model a better, more considered exit!
