Invest one day and get a weekly return of at least one day?


If you were to enroll in my course Psychology, Stress & Time on April 3, this exactly what would happen.

Current studies show a workday efficiency rate of only 23% for the average person.However, more importantly is the effectiveness, which could possibly be even lower.

Efficiency = doing things correctly
Effectiveness = doing the right thing 

For the vast majority of people including myself, we have invested plenty of time into the perfect planning and design of our practices and homes right up to the last electrical outlet. Nevertheless, how many of us have devoted the same amount of time or even more towards the planning of your everyday life? And to the understanding of the journey of life and where it leads?

“If you go into the wrong direction, then running does not help!”

Unfortunately, most people spend most of their lives in Class III and Class IV activities:

Class IV: not important and not urgent
Class III: not important, but urgent


Class IV: TV, social media, surf the Internet
Class III: reply to mails that do not help you but apparently are not so important for the sender that he would contact you again if you do not answer!

Time is our most important good and pretty much the only thing we can never get back! 

“Space I can recover. Time, never. “- Napoleon Bonaparte

Only if we consciously turn off all digital media the first few hours in the morning and focus on class I activities, then we consciously give our life the direction we have anticipated and planned:

Class I: important and not urgent

“What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important!” – Winston Churchill

Of course, as dentists, we also have to move a lot into class II. 

Class II: important and urgent.

These are then e.g. the appointments with our patients. Quite often, we let someone put the monkey on our shoulders and make the problems of our patients or employees ours. We have to recognize these monkeys and consistently put them back where they belong to. Furthermore, we must not be afraid to treat only the patients who 100% suit us – everything else destroys our health, energy and self-esteem.

“It is better to starve than get a bad client.” — Massimo Vignelli

Recognize the different patient types: 

  • the patient person (lat. = patientes) 
  • the impatient person
  • The know-it-all
  • the hypochondriac

Learn how to deal with them or how to change the patient types II to IV into category and type I because healing only takes place and a successful treatment is only possible if we interrupt and change the patterns that have been installed for years. For this, we use the techniques of Anthony Robbins. The top ingredient for a successful treatment requires patience from our patients – this is why the doctors have been calling their clients “patients” for 2,000 years! Our own energy (= personal power) has an unbelievable meaning and role model function (‘practice what you preach!’).

We also look at other techniques by Anthony Robbins, which I have studied intensively for over 15 years, such as the “6 basic human needs”. They control each behavior and thus make predictable on the one hand, but also help us to understand with this knowledge the behavior of our environment and to steer it into a positive direction.

The so-called “Triad” lets us generate every feeling like depression, fear, enthusiasm, enthusiasm, inner peace etc. in seconds – like a jukebox – and actively use it to our advantage.

Since we control all our feelings with the triad, anyway – even unconsciously – it makes a lot of sense to know this mechanism and instead of being exposed to it, to actively use it for our and our environments’ well-being!

Stress management is actually a stupid term. It is not about management of stress, it’s about “stress avoidance”!

Get to know the sources of stress, number one pathogen (real stress, physical stress, mental stress, and emotional stress), and learn about the associated tools on how to effectively avoid them. This will have an enormously positive impact on your relationships with your family, your patients, and your employees and will affect your own health, energy level and performance.

Time management is in fact “energy management”

Many people respond nonstop to external stimuli and become the toy of the demands of their environment, rather than living their own wanted and planned life.

Immediately turning off all messages on your smartphone has to be one of the first measures. Otherwise, you react like a rat in the laboratory to external stimuli. In the evening you will have the feeling, although you were busy the whole day, you have done nothing lasting and valuable.

Imagine you were lying on your deathbed. Would you tell yourself: “I should have worked more or surfed more on the internet and on Instagram”?

Will you ask yourself: “Would I have cared more about my own health, spent more time with my partner, my children and spent time in nature? Laughed more, kissed more, hugged more?”.

In a single day, this seminar will give you all the tools to be able to make your own life active and fulfilling!

“A walker encounters a lumberman in the forest who struggles with a blunt saw and it is predictable that it will take many hours to cut through the trunk. He asks the worker why he does not even want to go to town to sharpen the saw? The worker answers: “I do not have time for that, I have to saw, saw, saw!”. 

Do I see you on April 3 in Kreuzlingen at the SWISS BIOHEALTH EDUCATION CENTER?
