DO WE PRIORI T IZE PROFESS IONAL GOALS OVER PERSONAL ONES? The 2020 Plan We stand at the beginning of a new year. Let’s take a moment to look back on 2019 and celebrate some of our accomplishments. If we don’t, who will? The year saw some great achievements for Horizon PT. 2019 was our most productive year ever! This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our patients, so let me take a moment to say thank you to everyone we saw last year. During the last 12 months, I also did a better job of delegating work. I’ve always taken on too much work myself and felt the negative effects of that. Delegation still isn’t my strong suit, but I’ve gotten much better. I’mworking to get systems in place so my team can carry out their responsibilities and I can focus on the bigger picture as we go into the next year. The big goal for 2020 is to hire a new physical therapist. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere, but it became very clear to me last year that so many more people in our community could benefit from physical therapy. Our patient load grew a lot, and we’ll soon need another physical therapist to make sure patients get the quality care they deserve. Having this help on the teamwill also allowme to do more community education and outreach. A lot of people in our community don’t know physical therapy is an option for them. They deal with pain or health problems every day because they don’t know what physical therapy can do. In 2020 I want to visit senior centers, attend public speaking seminars, and open the clinic for “lunch and learn” events where members of the community can come in and ask questions.

the clinic self-sufficient enough that I can get home to my family at a decent hour. I want to have dinners with my wife and play with my kids before they go to bed. My boys aren’t going to be young forever. While it’s important to work hard and achieve your professional goals, it’s also important not to let your personal life suffer. My goal is to be able to take care of my patients and take care of my family, too. Whatever your goals are for 2020, make sure you identify them and write them down. You won’t achieve anything if you don’t know what you’re working for. Take a moment right now and ask yourself what kind of year you want 2020 to be. Then, ask what you have to do to make that happen.

Here’s to a happy and prosperous new year. May you make big goals and achieve what you set out to accomplish.

You can’t find a solution if you don’t know you’re looking for one.

On the personal side, having another physical therapist in the office to handle the workload may also help me get out of the clinic on time in the evenings. I’ve spent many years working hard to grow the clinic into a staple of the community. Now, I would like to make
