Monday Morning Motivation | Falling In Love

What are you doing this for? The applause? The appreciation? To make the payments? Fulfill your obligations? In other words, what's motivating you to put your back into your practice? Is it the cause? Or the cash flow? Regardless of the enterprise, doing it for the money is never enough to become head-turning, tell-others world class [...]

The Chiropractic Adjustment

I do not know how to adjust. I suppose sometime over the last three or four decades, someone would have shown me had I asked. But I have far too much respect for the adjustment to taint it with my own attempts. Please keep that in mind as you contemplate the points below. Undoubtedly, you’ve heard the [...]

Monday Morning Motivation | The Truth

Most of us are unaware of the impact we make with the people we have touched. Partly, because the effect can take time or occur out of our sight. The respect. The listening. The empathy.

Monday Morning Motivation | Chiropractic Pornography

Your customers are not spines, conditions or insurance carriers. Referring to them based on their symptoms, method of payment or subluxation pattern objectifies them in a way that pornography objectifies women. It may be convenient to refer to them as "our newest headache patient," but it's a person who is merely exhibiting the symptoms called headache. [...]

Monday Morning Motivation | Eating Frogs

Mark Twain referred to it as "eating the frog." The idea being that if the first thing you do each day is eat a frog, you can relax knowing that the worst part of the day is behind you.Do you tend to put off the things that are difficult and do them last? Or tackle [...]

Monday Morning Motivation | What Patients Do

A common belief among some chiropractors is that, "If patients knew what I know, they would do what I do." In other words, if patients knew of the devastation of subluxation and the potential of chiropractic, they would show up regularly on a nonsymptomatic basis and pay cash for life.Only problem is it's not true.We [...]
