I am a huge fan of journaling. Why? It makes us better people. It makes us sit and think. It allows your creative side to express itself. It forces you to be still. And it will help your DPC practice.
The above image is the journalI started a year BEFORE I opened FDPC (Forest Direct Primary Care). I still have it. I can to find my own prompts, inspiration, and motivation to keep me going.
You can do the same. Start now. Even if you are in the pre-contemplative stage of starting your own practice. That’s what I did. Write about:
- Your dream practice
- Your perfect day
- The type of patients you want
- The staff you want
- What your office will look like
If you are in practice than start journaling about the good things that went on during the day or what you are grateful for. There is a ton of stuff to keep you journaling, so much so that I had to create this book for those who needed some help:
You do NOT have to buy it but I think it is pretty good for DPC CENTRIC daily tips and prompts. There is nothing else out there like it (well, until someone copies it).
