Book Review: Killing the Practice Before it Kills You
Posted Nov 11 2010 9:50pm
Are you running your practice or is your practice running you? Do you feel like the gerbil on the wheel day-in and day-out? Don’t underestimate the importance of these questions.
After all, answering these questions, and what you do after you answer these questions could very well save your life! If you think I’m kidding, just ask Dr. Ron Arndt (The Dental Coach), DDS, MBA, MAGD.
Dr. Ron, a successful dentist, almost didn’t survive long enough to ask himself these questions. He nearly died 20 years ago after suffering a massive heart attack attributed to work-related stress. Dr. Ron’s recently released book, “ Killing the Practice Before it Kills You ,” details his frightening ordeal and the pivotal steps he took to turn around both his personal and professional lives.
I appreciate that “ Killing the Practice Before it Kills You ” is so focused. It’s not chock-full of fluff like many business books these days. Instead, it provides you with pointed, actionable steps that you can begin implementing today to begin the process of re-centering your life and building a high-performance dental practice.
Discover “red flags” that may indicate that your business is killing you
Understand how you got to where you are both personally and professionally
Understand how to step (or jump) off the “gerbil wheel”
Learn how to establish your personal and professional “core values”
Learn how to then “kill your practice” and conduct a practice makeover
If your life is stress-free and hunky-dory, then you probably have no need for this book. But, for the rest of you, do yourself a favor and purchase a copy of this book. If you’re ready to get off the gerbil wheel, shift your mindest, makeover your practice and de-stress your life, then you’ll find this book an invaluable tool moving forward.
