Keeping Your Eye on the Ball
In baseball, all of the action is determined by the ball. The winner is determined by who can control the ball best, whether it is the pitcher, the batter, the runners or fielders. The team that controlls the ball wins the game. Keeping track of the ball is essential.
Today as I listened to two of my friends relate the story of how their trusted office manager had be caught embezzling from the office, I was reminded once again of the importance of have sound accounting practices with checks and balances in place. Many times dentists forget that in spite of being health care providers, they are executives of a small businesses which for most of us provide the means of supporting our families and the families of our dental team. Our inability to manage our businesses will ultimately limit our ability to provide quality dental care. When we take our eyes off the ball, we open ourselves and practices to those who would take advantage of our lack of attention.
