When was last time you took an entire weekend off from work?
If you’re like most PT practice owners, your answer is “not in a very long time!” But did you know that the secret to being creative, innovative, and productive at work is taking time off? This may sound counterintuitive, because time away from work stops you from, well, working. In reality, though, stepping away from your practice affords you the opportunity to rejuvenate and energize.
As we toil away, we lose our ability to focus; we become reactive instead of proactive. This type of mental state isn’t ideal for running a business or making important decisions.
Don’t fall victim to overworking. Check out this two-minute video and learn how to make free time an actual part of your work week.
About the Author
Jamey Schrier, PT, DPT, provides business coaching services to private practice owners. Jamey has been a PT business owner himself since 1998, so he has plenty of experience in dealing with the challenges that every owner faces: generating more new patients, overseeing financials, managing staff, and handling the stress of juggling many different roles.
Before automating his practice using systems and grade-A staff, Jamey was working 60-plus hours a week, missing his kids’ events, and worrying about pulling in enough money to make ends meet. The stress kept building, which caused his confidence to plummet. Nowadays, Jamey uses his 13-plus years of PT experience and vast business knowledge to provide one-of-kind courses that show practitioners how to double patient volume and increase take-home pay by 50%—all in under six months.
