My $512 Morning… How To Turn Things Around!

Contact Us

This morning I had to go to Toronto for some meetings for a day trip. I had everything set up and was organized the night before. I got to the airport this morning and was informed I couldn’t check in because my flight was full. As if, 6am, I’m early and I can’t get onto my reserved flight and they tell me the best they can do is get me there at 5:00pm! Just as I use strategic thinking when things dynamically change in a dental office I did the same thing. I went to 2 airlines and boom the second one got me on a flight an hour later, $512. I had three choices 1) Get the company flying me to Toronto to deal with it 2) Turn around and lose out on a possible huge opportunity 3) Book it and go.

I chose to go, sure not ideal… Who wants to spend $512 when they don’t have to? However my meetings got pushed back, I got to meet a great group of people and by staying positive I created a good day for myself. I read an awesome book, got some work done, powered through the meetings and was it worth it? Yes 100%. Life throws unexpected things for us to deal with. Just as we have patients come in we never know what to expect. By choosing a positive approach and strategically thinking the best possible solutions to these unexpected events, you too will get to fly first class home
