Gold Found in My Waiting Room.
Chiropractic Torrance CA Gold Found in My Waiting Room

A few weeks ago a patient of mine was in the waiting room and I noticed he was making plans and writing things down in a very familiar looking book.

I asked him, "Is that a Franklin Covey Planner?"

He said, "Yes." Then we started talking about all the benefits of this amazing little planning system.

This patient used to live in California and mentioned that his previous employer had all the staff take a time management training course using this planning system back in the day. He has been using it ever since.

When he shared this story with me, I realized that I started using this system probably around the same time he did.

The only difference was I was self-employed after just opening the practice in California and had absolutely no clue how to run a business. I thought the planner would help me stay on track with achieving both my business & personal goals.

I went to a training seminar on the system, fell in love with it, and used it successfully for years until one day someone said to me, "Why are you lugging that planner around everywhere you go instead of just using your phone as your planning system?

Do you realize that your phone can do everything your planner can do?"

So, a few years ago, I figured maybe it was time to 'get with the times' and use my phone to manage my schedule and ditch the outdated, bulky, prehistoric ink planner.

One of the main ideas the FC seminars try to instill in you is that you don't want to have a bunch of different notes everywhere to keep track of your tasks and schedule but to have it all in one place.

I thought I could keep all my notes in my phone, but it just didn't work well for me. I ended up writing all my tasks on different sheets of paper and sticky notes to keep me on track.

I, therefore, ended up doing everything I was taught NOT to do and things slipped through the cracks.

This has been a source of stress the past few years, so something clicked inside when I saw this patient using his planner.

I knew right then that I needed to 'go back to the old paths'.

I thought to myself, "Why did I ever stop using this planning system?"

I ordered it right away & tore it open when it arrived on the last day of the year.

It was a sweet reunion to go back to using what worked so well for me and I'm over the moon I 'returned to the fold.'

Sometimes, we can do the same with our health.

We recognize we have a problem so we do something to resolve it, but then stop doing the things that helped us get better.

What system works well for you when it comes to staying healthy?

When was the last time you felt you were in the best condition of your life?

What were you doing differently back then that you stopped doing now?

Sometimes to regain our health, we need to think and go back to incorporating a habit, practice or lifestyle that worked for us.

Maybe you were involved in some hobby or sport you enjoyed that kept you fit and active.

Perhaps it was a certain diet or supplement routine you were on that helped you feel energized & productive.

What were you doing when you felt your best that you can start doing again to get you back on track?

We just finished the first week of the year with 51 more to go.

Start making the right changes today that will put you on the best path for tomorrow.

Have a GREAT weekend!
