"When I began practicing dentistry I was eager to service everyone. After all, that is what doctors do. However, I had no management technology and found myself frustrated and stressed out. I was constantly looking for an answer to improve as a person and improve my practice. After being in the field of dentistry for six years and only getting by with great effort, I was introduced to the Hubbard Management Technology and began to apply it to my practice. I saw results instantly in myself and my practice. My stats sky rocketed."
— Dr. Juan Villareal
Owner of one of the largest dental practices in the US
Don't ever do anything as though you were an amateur. Anything you do, do it as a professional to professional standards.
If you have the idea about anything you do that you just dabble in it, you will wind up with a dabble life. There'll be no satisfaction in it because there will be no real production you can be proud of.
Develop the frame of mind that whatever you do, you are doing it as a professional and move up to professional standards in it.
Never let it be said of you that you lived an amateur life. Professionals see situations and they handle what they see. They are not amateur dabblers.
So learn this as a first lesson about life. The only successful beings in any field, including living itself, are those who have a professional viewpoint and make themselves and are professionals.
