"The Successful Man is the One Who Finds Out What Is the Matter with His Business Before His Competitors Do." Roy L. Smith
Goals are important. Goals drive performance.
However, major goals need to be broken down into smaller ones. Likewise, your monthly goals should be broken down by week, and then even by day. Use something called “the Laser Sharp Focused Action Approach.” It’s the 80/20 rule applied to the extreme. Ask yourself daily: “what is the ONE thing on my list, that if accomplished, would make everything else on my list easier or unimportant?” Then get busy making it happen.
Be consistent on a daily basis. Use this approach day-in and day-out, and you will automatically be successful.
Never Accept Average
And make certain you’re always following your passion.
Also, to accomplish great things, never accept “average.” Those who accept average results remain average, and you’ve seen exactly what average results look like today. Totally unacceptable!
Each day make certain that you have time to talk to patients. Talking to patients can be your key to creating many more sales, especially if you stock the right natural medicines.
Talking to patients means asking them questions, discovering their aches and pains, and then making recommendations about how they can feel better, live longer, and enjoy those extra years of their lives.
Do You Have the Right Business Model?
All of this may lead you to question your business model. Are you simply filling prescriptions, or are you in the information business, influencing patients, which is where you should be in the 21st century.
Providing the correct information about solutions to people’s chronic diseases is definitely something the medical fraternity has not been adequately trained to do. Therefore, you should step in, fill the void.
When you do so, you begin to differentiate your pharmacy. And when patients notice that you stock a bigger selection of natural meds and better brands, you definitely differentiate yourself in their eyes. You truly MATTER to them.
