You Can’t Solve Problems Working on the Fly

November 13, 2008

It’s 2:30 p.m. and you’re in the O.R. in the middle of a case.  Your phone rings and it’s the [hospital administrator/your CPA/your biller] asking you to make a decision that will impact your practice and perhaps even your bottom line.

Stop.

Don’t make it.  Even if you must give a response (which, I guarantee you is extremely rare), it should be a qualified one, such as,  “My initial thought is [xyz], but I need to consider my position carefully and get back to you.”

You need to take the time to work on your business, not just in it.

Comment or contact me if you’d like to discuss this post.
