Small Practice Blog

This blog is intended to show the highs and lows I face day-to-day working as an ambitious and highly driven small practice owner.

My blogs will be both professional and personal. What happens in my personal life affects my professional life and vice versa.

Just covering one aspect and not the other means that I will not learn how to improve and change.

My key motivation for blogging is constant and never ending improvement. Writing helps me to do this.

I hope you find my blogs of some interest.

Like most people at the start of the New Year I want the year to be far better than the year that has gone and all the other previous years. The reality is that this feeling does not last long. I get into the grind of the day to day and end up doing the same things as all the previous years.

2013 will be here soon. I will not bore readers about resolutions. Most of these are not kept anyway.

I will aim to be positive. I know I can be Mr Gloom. It is just the way I am. At times I have a world will come to an end mindset.

Today was time off work from me. It is dangerous to have time off. My brain goes in all sorts of directions. As we enter 2013 the old brain has gone into over drive. One area it asks -perhaps it is time to move on from the practice world and get a job.

I am pleased with this week’s gain. I was expecting it to be far far worse. Come on it was Christmas week! Not only this, as I mentioned in one of the earlier blogs:
