Monday Morning Motivation | What's Your Purpose?
#1 of 13 questions to ask yourself: What is my purpose?
Every one and every thing has a purpose. Including your practice. Do you know what it is?
It's not to adjust patients.
Now, I hope you adjust patients, but it's not your purpose. Adjusting patients helps you advance or come closer to manifesting your purpose. In other words, adjusting patients is a means rather than an end in itself.
Definitely become a master of your preferred technique. But if you make adjusting patients your purpose, practice eventually becomes mechanical and emotionally empty. This can show up in the contradiction of wanting to "...help as many people in our community who are available..." yet relying on a technique that consumes massive amounts of time, constraining your ability to help more than a couple dozen people a day.
Even more important, knowing your purpose equips you say "No!" to off-purpose opportunities.
