Another year is in the books – we made it! We hope the year brought you so much happiness and growth, and that you’re walking away from 2018 with lots of perspective! The Dental Soiree team had a blast this year creating fun, engaging content for our clients and we hope you had a good time watching us do it! We’re so lucky to be able to play all day! What a fun job!
Looking Back on 2018
As you look back on the past year, we hope you had lots of successes and bright moments as you worked hard to grow your practice. It can sometimes feel like a slow process, but it’s the little wins and nuggets of knowledge that you pick up that lead to a big win later on!
Did you set goals for yourself at the beginning of the year? Take some time after the holidays to sit and reflect on those goals. Rather than simply checking to see whether you met the goals you set, consider the experiences and lessons you learned as you worked toward your goals. These will service you for a long time… as long as you take some time to reflect and honor them.
Now Start Looking Ahead
Similarly, after you spend some time thinking about what you wanted to accomplish for 2018, you’ll want to think of some marketing goals for your practice for 2019. Make sure they’re attainable, yet motivating. Additionally, make sure they’re specific so you can easily tell if you’ve met your goal at the end of next year. For example, you might want to increase your new patients by 15% in 2019. This is easy to measure and you can get really creative coming up with lots of new ways to reach your goal.
While we feel goal-setting is super important, we feel rest is even more important. The end of the year is usually a slower time for those of us in the dental industry, which means we can finally take a breath and maybe even a few days off. Don’t feel guilty about doing it – these kind things we do for ourselves are both necessary and critical to our success!
From our team to yours, we hope you have a safe and happy holiday season and that you take some time to reflect on the past and dream about the future. The Dental Soiree team will be here if you need some guidance on setting goals for the new year. We would love to help! You can reach us anytime by filling out this short form.
