Friday Philosophy 2 – “24 Hours is 24 Hours”

It has been a busy week improving practice efficiencies, creating content for the next staff training webinar, taking care of Gemma after her cancer surgery (she is recovering nicely and thank you to those who sent well wishes), and doing some interesting streaming. Check out “Beef” on Netflix starring Steven Yeun, Glenn from The Walking Dead, Yellowjackets Season 2 (very dark/Showtime), and The Deck Investigates (unsolved murders/Spotify or wherever you listen to your Podcasts).   


What are you watching or listening to right now? I ask because I know you are “invested” in some multiple-season series on one of the thousand available streaming platforms. Maybe you began watching under the influence of someone like me or because of a “recommended for you” series like “Ozark” with 44 episodes averaging 60 minutes in length. FYI: That’s one day and 20 hours of your life. 


What does this have to do with practice management or Friday Philosophies? It all goes back to one thing. . . TIME and we all have the same amount, right? 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, 52 weeks in a year. Why is it that some of us can accomplish so much more than others? I believe those who are always saying “I don’t have time” or “I have too much on my plate right now” simply need to prioritize and realize how much time and energy they waste complaining instead of just putting in the work and checking things off the list. 


When I read “I would like to cancel my subscription because I don’t have time to attend live webinars or log into the library” I am baffled. Here’s why:


Webinars are just ONE-member benefit, although enormously valuable and available 24/7, along with the ever-expanding resource library. 

Next week on April 12th at 2:15 EST is another Spring Staff Training webinar (the 3rd in our series which will focus on the diabetic shoe program, proper fitting and selection, documentation assistance and preferred pricing as a PPA practice). These 30-minute live webinars take place during varying “lunchtimes” (providing doctors and team members across the country an equal opportunity to attend live and allowing those who cannot, to view them later in the PPA library).
