Stay with your good ideas!

Do Not Trade Time for Money, Un-Work Strategy
“Get a good idea and stay with it.  Dog it, and work at it until it's done right.”  – WALT DISNEY  I guess Mr. Disney was saying, "persist", or did he also say believe in your ideas?  My experience working with doctors, with small and very large businesses for over a decade has shown me that most ideas are good.   Yet I shall ask what makes people in most professions fail?   They don’t stay with it, don’t dog it and don’t work until it’s done correctly.   Every time you start an idea, relationship etc. and say “I will do it for an X amount of time or till X amount of money is spent and then I'll walk away,” you’ve already lost before you started.   The point is, if you think it is…

“How many on their deathbeds wished they’d spent more time at the office – or watching TV? The answer is, no one.”

“How many on their deathbeds wished they’d spent more time at the office – or watching TV? The answer is, no one.”

Do Not Trade Time for Money, Un-Work Strategy
Stephen Covey, author of “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” said, "How many on their deathbeds wished they'd spent more time at the office - or watching TV? The answer is, no one."   Many business owners spend lots of time to run the day to day function of the business, put out fires, manage staff, handle customers, etc.  But they often fail to plan for what is important. They do NOT work on looking for ways where they can "stop trading their time for money", and thus free up time and money to care for health, family, personal goals, etc.   Having worked with doctors for close to 30 years, they are some of the most hardworking & yet also some of the most underpaid people we have known.  They have…

“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!  Helmut Flasch CEO, Flasch International www.Un-Work.com  PS. Let me shine…

“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”

“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”  - Derek Bok  (Former President of Harvard University)  Let’s make sure we expand that to all areas of life.   We must not only concentrate on the technical aspect of our profession, but also see our overall success and happiness.   Without “learning” how to keep focus, how to communicate with people about any matters, your chance of never realizing your full potential is huge.   Just look around. You will see a person who may be a specialist in one area but yet is still a failure in life. Why?   Simply ignorance of getting an education in ALL matters of life! Synergy, my friend, synergy!  Helmut Flasch CEO, Flasch International www.Un-Work.com  PS. Currently, there is one area in business where getting an education is worth mentioning.  And by the…

“Leaders who win the respect of others are the ones who deliver more than they promise, not the ones who promise more than they can deliver.” - MARK A. CLEMENT  We strive to achieve that every day, all the time. We sometimes fail. How do we do with you?  Please let us know – maybe we can improve!  Helmut FlaschCEO, Flasch International www.Un-Work.com  PS. We currently have the Un-Work program. As you might know we have been the “Don’t waste your money advertising – try Un-Advertising” company for 3 decades now.  But, restrictions, low re-imbursements from insurance companies, middle class disappearing has made practicing a less profitable business than ever. Even our Un-Advertising program has limitations as the margin per patients keep being squeezed more and more – with little end in sight.   So, it's time for…

It’s simply one’s failure to convert “Idle Wishing” to “Honest Needing” – Unknown Personally, I would take this idle wishing to honest needing up one more notch and say from ‘idle wishing’ to ‘demanding for things getting better.’  If you look at it – there is quite a big difference between knowing you need to and actually acting on it. Wishing that things get better is what all the 95% of people who will retire on social security at age 78 or 83 are doing.  Maybe, only maybe, a few who know they “need to do something” will actually do something.  However, the ones who demand that things get better, the ones who say enough is enough, the ones who realize that no matter what he risks in engaging in a…

"The secret to success is not luck or having a good idea at the right time.It happens to be your ingenuity on how you can, if at all possible, repeat (duplicate) a money-making action as often as needed, without your personal time involved, so that you can take home the profit you want." - Helmut Flasch, CEO of Flasch International Our office consulted a dentist a couple of years ago. He was quite a go-getter and did well on our Un-Advertising program BUT we never really got him to take the reins as an executive ONLY. He just could not drop doing dentistry himself so he could be a CEO and create bigger and more practices – which was what he wanted! One day he came to our office and…
