We’re pretty open here at Identity Dental Marketing. But one thing we can’t stand is the phrase, “I’ll do it when”.
“I’ll do it when I have the right team behind me”
“I’ll do it when there are better opportunities”
And our personal favorite, “I’ll do it when I have more time.”
The truth is, you’re never going to get more time. The 24 hours we have today are the same 24 hours you’ll have five years from now. In that five years you could sit and wait, wondering when. Or, you could spend that five years working hard to reach your biggest dreams.
We firmly believe that it is never a bad time to grow your practice or your business. Too often, people prevent themselves from growing by thinking they don’t have what they need to succeed.
It’s not a matter of not having what you need, but instead is entirely about thinking it has to be perfect to get started. That’s right. Perfectionism is the number one dream killer we see for our clients, our friends, and even ourselves.
The good news is, you don’t have to let perfectionism prevent you from growing. In fact, it’s easier than you might think. It’s all about learning to get smarter with your time.
Plan, Create, and Delegate
Often times we hold ourselves back because we think that we have to do everything. “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself” or so the adage goes. But, if you adhere to this like a stubborn bulldog, you can only get so far.
You shouldn’t be your entire team. Find the people that support your business as much as you do, and understand that with the right training, they are capable of doing excellent work.
If finding those kinds of people is proving to be difficult, don’t let this stop you either. Your hiring process isn’t working? Don’t hesitate to rip it up and start again. Action is better than inaction at any level. Even if it’s not perfect, you can get the ball rolling (see our blog about building momentum in your practice).
Whether it’s social media marketing, expanding your team, or growing your practice to multiple locations or doctors, you have everything you need to get started today. For help with implementation, training and growing, we’re here to help you. Contact us today and change that “I’ll do it when” to “I’ll do it now”.
