Freak Out

When I heard that Prince died, it was a huge bummer but... I just kept listening to his recordings.

When I heard that Steve Jobs died, it was a huge bummer but... I just kept using my MacBook.

When I heard that my doctor was moving away, I TOTALLY FREAKED OUT!

Is my doctor a bigger genius than Prince or Jobs?

No.

Has my doctor had a bigger impact on the world than Prince or Jobs?

No.

So... what’s the deal with my reaction?

My doc and I are connected.

Here’s the thing...

It’s not about being a genius, it’s about making a connection.

Which raises the question:

Would your clients freak out if you left?

Yours,
