“Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.”
– E. Joseph Cossman
It is easy to concentrate on problems and forget to see the thing you wanted in the first place.
Concentrating only on the mechanical steps of doing one’s job is just another way to forget all about one’s goals.
Make it a daily habit (especially when you have problems) to force yourself to look at your goals. DON’T, however, make your goal ‘getting out of this mess’ or in some other way lessen your goal because of the magnitude of your problems.
Look at your original goals only. In fact, whenever you think you can’t make it, make the goal bigger, not smaller. Try it – it works!

PS. Let me shine a bit more light on looking at the original goal.
Is it possible that the original goal – the top goal was – or should have been – to have a respectable good earning profession which also helps people?
What I mean is this. Is the goal of growing your practice and earning money here in order to have time for family, yourself, and maybe for a new business ventures just for “fun”?
Has your priority changed?
Has the business climate changed?
Could a goal of “more patients“ be useless, as the profit margins don’t work anymore as they did 30 years ago?
Is it your goal to spend more time in the practice in order to earn more or would the “more time” part only be a sacrifice?
As said above – too often the goals are modified by current circumstances and are actually only goals of solving a problem instead of the real goal!
Here is a point which might help a bit with finding the real goal – ask yourself “why”; “why am I doing this?”
Be like a child that you once were. Ask why, why, why!
If you do that you might find out that ALL your goals have just been vehicles and tools to get what you really want!
You might realize that many of your goals have been vehicles only and once you know that it is much easier to change the vehicle to get to the real goal!
