Thinking in stillness

Thinking in stillness gives you the opportunity to resolve the problems of the day.

Most of our lives are filled with the general actions that you encounter.

Handle the most vital priorities of the day and the day becomes productive.

The problems handle you if you are just throwing energy at your problems.

You fare better with a system that allows you to manage the day at a glance.

Having a bright idea several years ago, I called Daytimer, a time management company that sells a notebook system to handle the organizing of your day.

Some people do this task with a Blacberry or the latest time management application.

In talking to Daytimer Inc., they informed me their time management system remains one of their best sellers.

Even in a computer age, their notebook management system remains popular.

Thinking in stillness generates thoughts that should be harvested in a system that can maximize the potential of ideas that come to you.

For some reason their clients that tried a computer version of their notebook system preferred the physical manipulation of the written page over a computerized version.

Those who use time management systems like Daytimer or Franklin may understand why the notebook version remains so popular.

My initial thoughts had me thinking people who buy these systems are old school executives who would still rather scribe notes in one of these systems then in their I-pad, Kindle Fire or a similar pad.

Pads are very effective and keep you connected to the web, but systems that work are hard to give up.

In a dental office, patients who desire treatment are worked up on the pages of one of these systems.

These systems work great for patient workup with final notes placed in the patient’s chart.

Your thoughts written on paper seem to develop a plan before they become a part of the patient’s record.

Sometimes our thoughts are simply thoughts that lead to the final disposition of a patient’s treatment plan.

Physical records would become very comprehensive with tons of volume if every thought was included in the patient’s record.

Private thoughts of the dental practitioner are not all a part of the permanent record. They do help to develop greater understanding of a patient’s planned course of action.

Use one of these systems thinking in stillness for the greater good of your treatment planning process.
