Dr. Ginger Bratzel talks about learning to delegate.
If you are one of our regular viewers you know I am always giving you a wealth of information on things you need ‘to-do’ to help grow your business. Which is great because that means are you dedicated to change and growth in your dental practice. As a result, if keep adding to your to-do list you could realize you have 20 things on your agenda to get done and this will make you feel overwhelmed, instead of keeping you on track to get closer to your goal.
Remember, to-do lists are only there to help you, not overwhelm you. They should be inspiring and help you move forward in a positive direction.
Also, a lot of times doctors take on all these responsibilities onto themselves. It’s your business and you’re focused on making the growth happen yourself. This brings on unnecessary overwhelming feelings because that task may need to be completed by someone else-not you!
Do you need to delegate it out to someone in your office? Does it need to be outsourced to another vendor? Don’t allow yourself to become the bottleneck for things getting done. Your role as the dentist is to focus on leadership, management and most importantly doing dentistry. You are not the ‘doer’.

Each day you should assess your to-do list and only have three laser focused things you want to accomplish to get to your goal. If these things are not geared toward getting you to your goal and growing your dental practice, they should not be on your list. By doing this, you will stay better focused and on track.
To help you narrow down your to-do list, ask yourself these three things. First, does it need to be completed by you? Second, is this task getting you closer to your goals? And third, is it laser focused? If you can’t answer yes to all three of those things, then that task should be delegated to someone else.
Another perk to only having 3 things on your to-do list, you can complete these tasks quicker than the never ending list you were creating for yourself before. You will have a sense of accomplishment, therefore, giving you a more positive outlook when moving on to your next set of tasks.
In this video, you’ll learn about:

- Staying laser focused
- Tasks that you need to complete vs. tasks that should be delegated
