March 20th marked the official start of Spring. I don’t know about you, but after the interesting Winter we’ve had, the warm weather and sunshine is giving me a sense of renewed energy – it’s a great time to take that spark of motivation and apply it to your practice.

Why a spring cleaning? Because sometimes you need to shake the dust loose and examine routines that have become habitual. It’s a great opportunity to dump unwanted baggage and spruce up the practice. If you are in a hurry, a once-over with the vacuum, a couple of swipes with a dust cloth and a few lit candles can do the trick. But in the long run, that kind of cleaning isn’t going to cut it. That’s why our ancestors invented spring cleaning. They knew that every once in a while, you had to stop, roll up your sleeves, and deep clean. (That, and they had picky mothers-in-law too.

When work gets busy, many of us put certain non-mission-critical tasks on hold. But it’s important to remember that “on hold” should not be allowed to turn into “lost in the mists of time”. We must develop the discipline of regularly returning to and addressing the non-urgent details of their practice when opportunities present themselves.

Although spring is a good reminder for all of us to get organized and energized, it’s a good idea to execute on best practices all year long to stay organized. Over the next month, our members will be coached and supported in  5 areas where they can eliminate the clutter and do a little ‘Spring Cleaning –

  1. Schedule
  2. Minimizing ‘Energy Drains’
  3. Web Presence/Social Media
  4. Patient Flow Systems
  5. Patient Communication and Relations
