What happens when a dentist gets so busy he doesn’t have time for anything else except to keep that hamster wheel spinning?
What happens is that 5, 10 even 20 years go by. You’re too busy keeping the wheel spinning to hop off long enough and ask yourself if this is REALLY how you want things to go.
Most dentists don’t want to be this busy. It just happens. The weeks, months and years fly by and the only progress you make is that you don’t SINK.
The very fact that dentists are able to put in 10, 20 even 30 years doing this means you’re pretty darn tough. Not everyone could do that.
But just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
If you haven’t stepped off the hamster wheel in a while to make sure you’re going in the right direction for you, what’s going to get you to do that?
I talk to dentists all the time who are struggling with what it means to be a dentist these days.
But most of them are so stuck on the wheel they can’t even entertain the idea that they could step off.
Instead, they work harder, they hire “hamster wheel” consultants who help them be more efficient and effective.
But this isn’t a solution, it’s simply a way to stay alive.
My mission on this planet is to show the dentists who are ready that there is another way. A way where you can dismantle the hamster wheel and go on vacation.
Of course there’s work involved, but it’s not work that takes you around and around like the hamster wheel does.
It takes you on an upward trajectory to a type of life very few people get to enjoy.
