Closing Thought of the Week: Great Example or a Horrible Warning - E38
One of the principles I live by in regards to parenting is “you can be a great example or a horrible warning”. You are going to be one or the other. With 3 kids that are 5 years old and under I see the impacts of my actions magnified and find myself trying to be “better” so my kids do not develop my bad habits. And guess what? It works. I have stopped having bad table manners that did not matter when it was just me and my wife. I try to pick up after myself in the kitchen and I am very mindful of saying please and thank you.
I bring this up because as Optometrists, people are watching your every move. Whether it is your staff, patients, or future eye doctors, you are setting an example. It will affect your word of mouth referrals and ultimately your relationships with these people. What we do matters. Like spiderman says..with great power, come great responsibility.
Use your powers for the greater good my friends. Have a great weekend!
