Oftentimes, because we truly are in business for ourselves, we let problems fester or hope they solve themselves. However, in most cases, they never do. In fact, I didn't even realize I let this happen in my own business until I started working with a coach and then became a coach myself. Let me explain.

Ask yourself, what is your practice’s biggest problem that you should be working to solve right now? Write it down, look at it and read it out loud a couple of times. Now, if the problem was solved, how much more productive would your business be? Could you double, triple, or maybe even quadruple your production as well as have even more independence and time to spend with your family?

See, we struggle to look at most of our problems objectively. Thus, in most cases, we need a coach or at least an accountability partner because in the back of our minds we think, “Oh, it's just one of my businesses problems,” when in reality there is a huge opportunity cost in not finding the solution.

So, next time you have a problem, sit down and try to solve it as quickly as possible or get help. Solving the issue can be as good as taking your current income and multiplying it by four!
