Garbage in. Garbage out.
You’ve probably heard this phrase before. Maybe even used it. If not, it simply means that faulty conclusions are based on faulty data.
When combined with the definition of creativity (rearranging the old to produce the new), it creates a more somber conclusion: without new input you’ll be stuck in your rut with the same old results!
That’s why it’s so important to read, especially outside of chiropractic. That’s why it’s so important to turn off the television so you’re not filled with the same fear-based herd mentality that patients bring in with them. That’s why it’s so important to try new foods, take new paths, take new risks and do the opposite of what everyone else is doing.
To remain salty, spicy and be a change agent, it’s critical that you get some new, high-quality inputs. That way you can be a more influential input for patients.
