Do you have a Plan?
There are a lot of great lessons you can learn from going to a business school.
There are a lot of great lessons you can learn from personal experience (“The School Of Hard Knocks”).
Both provide a great education, but are very expensive and time consuming.
From both experiences you should learn 2 primary lessons:
- The importance of planning
- The importance of strategic decision-making
The Plan is first. Strategic decision-making is second.
But can you take the “academic experience” and apply it to practical situations?
There is no single path to success. If you are going to venture out on your own:
Just as no airplane can take off without a flight plan and no ship can sail without a plotted course, no Doctor can contemplate a successful transition from ”provider” to physician, Medical Advisor, and business owner without a comprehensive plan.
