What’s up, everybody? Doctor Addison here at THE SPECIFIC CHIROPRACTIC CENTERS. I just got done with a patient and I’m in between my afternoon clients. I just wanted to jump on for my DONE IS PERFECT CHALLENGE here, Day Number 12. This is our DONE IS PERFECT CHALLENGE, 30 days of 30 videos every day. I’m in honor roll. I’ve been enjoying these. I hope you guys are enjoying these too.
This is going to be super sharp because I got not much time. I’m in between patients, like I said. Earlier today was a busy day, lunch was really busy at a bunch of meetings, about three meetings, four meetings. Eleven is our conference call. It’s fun because on Tuesdays we have our meeting with the Specific Doctors all around the United States and me. Every Tuesday we meet up and have different topics, this one is our Clean Director’s Meeting.
We talked about what we’re doing for March, for marketing and our kind of promotions that we’re going to do. Heads up for everyone who’s watching this, it’s alive one week ahead. We’re going to be doing something super fun in our office. It should be on Instagram too.
The theme in March is March Madness. We’re going to go with the same Patty’s idea, but not so much Saint Patrick’s Day, but more of the Four Leaf Clover. Our national team, everybody put together on one. I’m like really into this. It’s just basically showing gratitude and what we feel we’re lucky about, sharing that with the world.
I was talking to my massage therapist about this meeting, it’s super fun and worthwhile for all of you on Maui. I hope you guys play with us cause it’s going to be fun.
Basically it’s just sharing positivity in the world. We’ll have a bulletin board put up in March, starting next week, Monday at Kauai. And then the next week, Thursday on Maui. We have a bulletin board and we have a bunch of Four Leaf Clovers. You can remain anonymous.
Every day I do this, actually in the morning when I wake up, I write in my journal. And the first thing I write in my journal is the five things that I’m grateful for. It might be about yesterday. It might be about today or about something in the future, but every morning I write in my journal five things that I’m grateful for. The reason why I do that is because it’s a quick reminder to myself, some feedback to myself about my life, mainly about the things that I’m obviously appreciative of. And then it’s a reminder about some of the good things that are happening in the world, sometimes it can be really tough.
My job is to help people get well. And most people come to me when they aren’t. If I’m spending 8 to 12 hours a day talking about what’s wrong with people and trying to figure out what’s right about them. Sometimes it can be a little bit tough on the heart.
One big thing to help keep your life in balance is a gratitude journaling. And that’s what I do every morning. It’s one of the things I learned from the book, “THE HAPPINESS ADVANTAGE”. They show that if you do a gratitude journal every morning, being thankful, picking five things, you show statistically based on research that you are much more productive at work or productive in life. And in general live a fuller and happier life, which makes total sense. For the whole month of March, if you guys want to play and be part of this thing that we’re doing, we’re going to have a bulletin board with Four Leaf Clovers where you can write one thing that you feel or as many things you want that you feel lucky for. It could be a big thing, a small thing. It doesn’t really matter. I think the more we share it and you can do these things we’ll feel a little bit better about how things going in our life with all the crazy stuff going on.
More importantly, we build resilience and then we acknowledge the good things so we can create more good things for ourselves too. It’s what we call the happiness advantage. So I’m stoked for this because I practice this daily. And I think this will be great to share with all of my patients.
So that’s March, that’s what we talked about at our team meeting on our teleconference with all the doctors. But the other thing that we talked about is the 80 20 rule. Show me in the comments below, have you ever heard of the 80 20 rule? It’s been popularized in business. Sociological research that is done in groups that what they see is if you’re in a group per say a group of 10 people, on the end there’s a common goal mission, and there’s work that needs to be done.
The goal is to carry rocks for an hour. What they see statistically, this is what happens in groups is that 80% of the work that needs to be done is done by 20% of the people. And they see that in business, in workplaces a lot . You know, when there’s a project that needs to be worked on and there is 10 people or five, seven people in there, they’re all working together. They noticed that generally 80% of the work that needs to be done or has been done is done by 20% of the people. And so I always thought about this concept because if you’re thinking about maximizing things in your life and if you look at your life and how you’re doing certain things, like you could really think about that.
Possibly the best things about your life, 80% of it was done because he put 20% of the effort in there. Or it was like 20% of the time. So what if you increase that in your life? What if you increase that with your relationship with people? Say you’re in a group of people working towards a common goal and 80% of the work is being done by these 20% of people.
What if you just only worked with those 20% and find more people that work just like that, or are passionate about the things that you are passionate about too. Isn’t that an interesting concept? We talked about that today, my mentor, Dr. Shawn, had a few conversations with a few people notable people.
And I’m really bad at name-dropping. So I’m just not going to name the drops or drop the names because I actually forgot the names. And he was having this conversation with someone who is like a multimillionaire, over four or $500 million a year. And he talked about this 80 20 rule applying it to his life with relationships, revenue and things in his life to make his life a little bit more efficient. He looked at his life, seeing who he’s working with and seeing who the people he’s doing majority of the work with and efficiently and successfully that 20%.
And then actually dropping the other relationships that he had so that he could focus on that 20% of people so that there’s more time and attention to the things that are doing great. And then bringing on new people in his life to make sure that he’s continuing or they’re continuing the mission and vision as they talked about.
And I thought that was wow. That was a really eye-opener for me, because I am really good at just working with whoever and whenever. I really want to get better at forming better teams so that we can be more successful because in the end we want to make sure that we are doing the things that we love and doing it in a great way. It’s true here actually. We’ve gone through several people through our offices and sometimes, just in general, maybe between the five years I’ve been here. That have been two staples me, my office and then Ron Andres. He’s been with me since the beginning. He’s an awesome massage therapist. In fact, the thing that I talked about, the March thing that we mentioned, if you’ve been watching this the whole time, we’re going to do a kind of giveaway. So if you like, share your thing, that you’re lucky for, you’re going to be entered into a giveaway.
And I think it’s going to be like a massage or several massages actually. And then a full testing from me, from the office. Either for you, or for someone you care about. You can share with us be a pretty awesome gift, actually. So you know, that’s pretty cool. Anyways, the 80 20 rule, our March thing coming up. I hope this is something that you get excited for because I’m excited. I gotta get to work. I think people are here. I’ll see you guys.
