Quality= how good you do something
Quantity= how much you are able to do
Well it is the end of my week and as I looked back at my “work” (private practice dietitian), I was initially disappointed because the number of clients I saw was not what I expected for the week, nor where I’d like to be. But upon further thought, I reflected on each of my sessions, and thought about the great progress my clients are making because of our “quality work”. I really enjoyed all my clients this week. There was a large focus on mindful eating and awareness of conducive eating environments.
So it is my challenge to myself to go beyond the numbers (client volume) when measuring my success as a private practice dietitian. The clients I see right now are making positive changes to fit their lifestyle through my “work” and many have expressed to me that I have made a difference in how they approach food/eating. I cannot wait for my practice to grow so I can help more people live a healthier lifestyle while maintaining my focus on quality!
