We have recently been discussing with offices the concept of compounding consistency. The more consistent you are with a system, idea or process, the results of that work/focus will compound with time.
In dental office terms being very consistent in efforts to re-activate patients will compound with time. Try stepping outside of your comfort zone and asking patients about their smile in a way you never have before. These will compound with a positive result.
In a recent podcast released by Tony Robbins this idea rang true. It reminded us that no matter what industry you are in, what aspect of your life you are working on? Even in sports being consistent with your approach is critical to see results. The podcast is called Becoming Michael Phelps. Phelps talks about his training, the consistent manner he went about it for so many years.
At the age 9, Michael Phelps started swimming with Bob Bowman. At the 11 Bob said he could get him to the olympics in 4 years if he was laser focused. Michael trusted him to take him there but they did it together. The consistency in training led Michael to being the most decorated Olympian of all time.
Michael Phelps training week consisted of 75 works outs PER week.

As dental offices we are training daily to have our offices be the best they can be. The idea of being consistent with our work/focus is critical just as it was for Michael Phelps.
