People who moan about their job are usually too blind to see that having a job is a privilege.

Those who’ve experienced a pay packet not knowing where the next is coming from, I’m sure will agree.

It’s not to say every job is wonderful but even bad. Jobs are stepping stones to move forward from.

Haven’t been on here for a while.

Not posted for weeks, well months, it’s simply been that busy.

All the same have decided that no one had missed the blog and as such concluded it’s because I have written most posts in a diluted and commercially sympathetic style. Rarely has a post been opinionated or related to controversy.

Apparently that’s what makes a good blog, divide opinion or create confrontation.

I get it, no one wants to read their own thoughts, delivered by someone else. Unless those thoughts are romantic or fictional or otherwise.

So new and original material coming.

Look out …

For the love of the job!

Too many people work, pay their taxes, there NI and swiftly take sick days to ensure they get their contributions back. They see the payments of PAYE as their money to get back.

This is their driving force.

Not to do something they enjoy. That was forgotten many years ago.

Death and taxes!!!

Up Front Payment Economy

As we move forward through the recent economic gloom, a conversation with the brother on law developed an interesting conclusion.

We discussed paying for goods and how in his business up front payment had become the norm. He’s a mechanic.

I wonder if all the service industries went the same way, whether we would see an improvement in all aspects of business.

Working without fear of non payment, being clear on the costs and able to invest in your business rather than chasing outstanding payments.

Using a Locum agency.

Ok, we are here at crowns to help.

Nurses who don’t turn up dentist that are unable to fulfil contracts and Hygienest that are to be trialled, that’s what Crowns is about. Why we help so many practices and add value in the work we do.

Call crowns for all your staffing requirements.

Balancing blogs

This is probably only specific to me, but I find it quite difficult to balance the need to read, interesting articles, with the need to write blogs. One needs inspiration but must also create time to action on those rasps of interesting tit bits.

Little things

Its always the little things that capture our attention most when we are met with significant change. Whether for the good or the worse, we will discuss most, how it was something small that caused the change.

The reason for this, being we often didn’t see it coming, we didn’t focus our attention on these little things, because at the end of the day they were ‘little’.

It makes sense, no point focusing on the little things, because its the big things that are going to differentiate you and your business, the way the practice runs, your career, the team moral. The big things are going to be the threat or create the opportunity.

However, whenever there is a major incident or event, the subsequent investigation uncovers a catalogue of small events which culminated in either success or failure.

The chance meeting, the loose bolt, the white lie, the consistency, the double entry.

Dentistry is currently under so much change, there are so many big things happening, new challenges, hurdles and opportunities, its still worth giving those little things a bit of time and energy.

So in the spirit of focusing on the small things, click and follow us, you never know where it might lead:
