I’m too busy right now.
There’s too much going on.
Maybe next year.
Medical group leaders are busy focusing on day to day activities: Most are deeply involved in direct patient care. Some, yes, some, also devote some time to working on their business.
But there’s a pressing need to engage in strategy. And you have to address the tough issues, like governance, succession planning, compliance, expansion of your business, and many more.
Yes, you’re right, it’s not the right time. In fact, it’s never the right time.
So if there’s never a right time but you have to take action anyway, then consider that it’s always the right time.
Get started. Because one thing’s for sure. The “unexpected” really isn’t and it’s better to be prepared.
