THINK ABOUT IT!

Handmade Ceramic Cup_edited.jpg

THINK ABOUT IT! is a Self-Help book containing 60 thought-provoking epigrams which help people reflect and learn about themselves.

It is an “ethical” and “caring” SELF help book! This may seem a contradiction, but helping others can be “selfish” because of the satisfaction and rewards it brings!

How do YOU feel when a patient expresses genuine gratitude and affection for you and the practice? THINK ABOUT that! 

How to use the book: it's great for "flicking though"; or choose one section/step first; or study the index; the choice is yours! But please note that, though you may laugh out loud frequently, ALL epigrams are SERIOUS - to provide guidance as well as amusement.

This book is great for team meetings - to get to know and help each other and "see ourselves as others see us" - lots of fun as well as tailored learning!

Some example epigrams to THINK ABOUT ....

  • number   1 - you can only control what you can control, but YOU CAN CONTROL what you can control.

  • number 18 - the comfort zone can be tempting, but it's CHALLENGE, even fear, which helps us grow as people.

  • number 20 - when the “what’s the point” moments hit, ask yourself “what IS the point?” Why ARE you doing what you’re doing? 

  • number 37 - now here's an original thought, the other person (eg a patient) MIGHT BE RIGHT !

  • number 39 - the best way to diffuse an argument is to APOLOGISE to the other person - even when they're wrong!

  • number 47 - trust and believe others ALL THE TIME - life is more relaxing and fulfilling than being paranoid!

The last two - numbers 39 and 47 - are especially good examples to THINK about, because they appear counter-intuitive at first. But they ARE true and may apply to you - especially with patients - THINK ABOUT IT!
