Hello folks. As you know real life does not follow a series of neat steps that “advisors” promote. Life is messy, unpredictable and rarely goes as planned. Even if it does, that does not last long.
Life gets messier with age through and more and more responsibility.
Over the last two years, I was forced to get off the treadmill of practice management and expansion. In fact, I went through practice contraction. I became a carer of an elderly parent. That phase of my life is now over.
It was physically and emotionally draining. At the same time, it has given me such a high level of personal satisfaction. My perspective has changed. I no longer sweat as much on what would be termed as small stuff.
The reason for this blog, is to gain some clarity on how I move forward with my small practice. If you are a long-term reader of my blogs, you already know my views on practice guru types.
I know the answers are within me. If not, I know I will find them in my own way. Through reading, thinking and talking to a very small number of people whom I trust and respect.
I think I have taken the first key step in writing about these issues. It is my therapy.
