“One third gone and what have you done?”

The Incisal Edge Newsletter for May 1st.

“Strike another match, start anew.” (Bob Dylan)

April 30th was our financial year end for nearly two decades and I still have a feeling that I must end something and, more important, start something around that date. Whilst tidying, reading and binning yesterday I came across these lines. I don’t know who wrote them originally but I like the simple message.

  • We are where we are.

  • It matters not how we got here.

  • What matters is; what happens next.

We’re a third of the way through 2019, blink and the summer will have gone, have you made the changes that you dreamed of, taken the steps you hoped  for or chosen the new path? If not now when?

I am a great fan of goals & plans and objectives & tactics sometimes what matters most is what you do in the next 10 minutes.

Many people (especially in dentistry it seems) have a tendency towards  “perfection paralysis” they want everything to be “right” before they make changes, before they start something new and, because it never will be, because perfection never quite happens, sadly they don’t start, they don’t make the move, and they are left with their dreams, hopes and aspirations unfulfilled.
If you are one of those perfectionists
this article might help.
