You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.

“You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.” – CHARLES BUXTON  Many years ago, I have worked hard (90 hours a week, for about nine months in a row).  One man once told me that I was working too hard to ever make money. I replied that I love my job and that I made good money.  He smiled, patted me on the shoulder, and said, “I’m happy for you. But I mean real money, lots of money – you can’t make it while working so hard.” 25 years later, I understood what he meant.  Goal-Maker. Every organization needs a goal-maker like Kennedy, Gandhi, etc., setting goals such as “let’s fly to the moon!” The Goal-Maker usually does not perform the physical step of an organization. He just “dreams stuff up” so to say!  Manager. The executive…

"When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us."  – ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL (Inventor of the telephone)  What represents a closed door in our business?   A patient who did not return for reasons only known to himself, a long-time staff member who quits, a marketing program which did not work at all, the government which allows programs such as HMO, which makes it impossible to deliver adequate service and still eat – the list is long indeed!  Which doors are always open for us? Many doors are left open, and different ones for each of us. Below are a few you should look for.  Technology allows doctors to market and communicate with less cost and increased effectiveness,…

“Nothing big ever came from being small.” – UNKNOWN  That should and must start with your thinking – which then encompasses everything else.  If you must think, you might as well think big.   Helmut Flasch CEO, Flasch International www.Un-Work.com  PS. Maybe that’s why people say – “It’s too good to be true”, so that they don’t have to think big! Check out our "too good to be true", “stop trading time for money” Un-Work program. Find out how there are currently two economies at play and how one – the one on which most doctors are totally stuck in – has lost just about all its appeal, and how the second one is not only making people rich but requires little investment and gives the freedom of time and not being stuck at…

World wide web phenomenon

“I’m attending school only until it becomes available on CD-ROM.” – ANONYMOUS STUDENT  “THE INDUSTRY STANDARD” magazine. By Dan King, September 11, 2000.  “While online schools launch across the nation, Choice2000, a Riverside County, CA, charter school with 200 students, has offered online high-school education since 1996. We asked Choice2000’s director. . .  Q:How do teachers teach online?  A:It’s pure instruction. If a kid wises off, you just click, delete and he’s gone. The teachers who are soaring are technologically sophisticated. They’re exploring websites and are excited about the delivery system. We had one teacher who’s heavy-set and had difficulty getting around a classroom. But this is the perfect solution for him.”   And you, the doctor, better catch on to this computer/web phenomenon because when it hits you, it will hit you harder than HMO…

If everything’s under control, you’re going too slow.

“If everything’s under control, you’re going too slow.” – MARIO ANDRETTI (Champion Car Racer) This does not only go for a car racer, but for anything in life. Think of it this way, if you exercise and do not get sore muscles, you don’t get stronger. In business, it is the same. If everything is smooth and all is well organized, then you probably are not expanding quite as well as you could. There really is no way to greatly expand and yet be completely in control. That is utopia, but in the real world it does not happen. One has to get out of one’s comfort zone to achieve new horizons. Every time you have a new employee, take on a new customer, sell a new product or service…

The credit belongs to the man in the arena

The credit belongs to the man in the arena

Do Not Trade Time for Money, Un-Work Strategy
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.   The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those…

“Killing time murders opportunities.” – UNKNOWN  This is also called procrastinating. All the money lost in a person’s life is not the money wasted, but the money never made.   Every time you wait to act you kill opportunity, especially in a time of Internet when the competition gains light-years (lots of dollars) in minutes, and catching up, as every procrastinator knows, well, is a bitch.  Helmut Flasch CEO, Flasch International www.Un-Work.com  PS.

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles that one has overcome while trying to succeed.”  –BOOKER T. WASHINGTON  When young, I was following the ski sport and one year, during the Olympics, one of Austria’s skiers (Karl Schranz) got disqualified. He was not allowed to ski during the Olympics. Everyone, not only the Austrians, were betting on him.   But because Schranz did not compete, the winner, who according to the world’s opinion would have been second, was not a winner in the world's eyes.  Just like Muhammed Ali remained the King, even though someone else got the belt, because Muhammed Ali was in prison.    See how happy you become, if and when you overcome the impossible! Not because of what you will have but…

“If at first you DO succeed, try something harder.” – ANN LANDERS  Look at it this way. When you make someone an offer to buy his house or car and the guy accepts – you get worried right away!  You think you offered too much, right? Never lower your goals, always raise them, even if you have not achieved the old ones yet.  Sounds counter to what psychologists tell you? I know, but contrary to their advice, this one works!  Helmut Flasch CEO, Flasch International www.Un-Work.com  PS.
