September may be just around the corner but I am making the most of the last lazy days of summer.
I love having a bit more time to myself in the summer but this downtime allows me the time to think ahead to where I want to be before the end of the year.
If you are a parent like me, your children will be returning to school in the next few weeks.
The start of their new term coincides with my ‘new term’ when I review the goals I set out at the start of the year and set out new goals for the remaining months of the year.
Do you take stock throughout the year? If not, why not? Are you on track to make the money you want to earn and to enjoy your life as you want?
My therapy business coaching systems help therapists like you to actually achieve their goals.
There is no time like the present to sit down and think about the future. Do not put it off until the New Year.
But don’t beat yourself up if you are less than organised. That all stops here with my help!
Here’s what you do. The next time you have a spare 30 minutes sit down with a notebook.
Divide a page into three columns, entitled ‘what has gone well,’ ‘what has not gone so well’ and ‘how could I do it differently’.
This one exercise will allow you to take stock. Write down what you are pleased with and what you have found challenging.
Be honest with yourself. You need to do a bit of soul-searching if you want to improve your therapy business.
The third column is where you start to plan ahead. This is key and is the point at which many therapists decide they need my help.
Deciding to tackle the challenges is the first step to beating them.
The therapists I am working with are recognise need help to change old working habits and make new goals.
They have realised they can make more money, win more clients and enjoy a healthy happy work life balance.
However one of the most important things we can do as therapists is recognise our skills and celebrate them.
Have you had a breakthrough with a client? Have you really changed someone’s life for the better?
Pop on over to my private Facebook page for therapists like you where we share our successes and plan even more. Send me your email and I will invite you to join our group.
I look forward to meeting you.
Until the next time.
