You Aren’t A Failure Until… | Coaches Corner – Quote Of The Day

Bum Phillips, author of the quote of the day on failure
“You fail all of the time. But you aren’t a failure until you start blaming someone else.”
Legendary football coach Bum Phillips

Failure is inevitable

Failure in the dental practice is inevitable, especially if you try new things. And your practice can’t grow unless you try new things. So… are often destined to fail. But do things well and you are also destined to succeed!!
One of the scariest things for a dentist to do is to delegate tasks to a talented team member. But the bigger and scarier the task, the better chance that its successful delegation will be good for the practice!
So go ahead and delegate confidently and frequently. When it works, celebrate as a team. And if it doesn’t, take the blame and move on.
