Time is everything in a busy practice and life. The more you can accomplish in less time, the better! Once in my high end mastermind meeting, we were being trained on Facebook strategy. (side note: very big waste of time in my opinion. I invested time and money in FB strategy and it changes often. It is much better to hire someone who does ads and strategy and ONLY does Facebook or Social media. This way you do not have to relearn the wheel) In my mastermind we had a 3 hour session and at the end of it, we talked about the rate of implementation.
The rate of implementation is directly related to the rate of success. For example, if you go to a chiropractic seminar and you take notes on the hotel paper and you bring the notes home and never ever look at them again, your increased rate of success stays the same. If you go to a seminar and you bring a pre decided notebook just for this purpose and you draw lines down the page and the right column is ACTION STEPS and then you hand those steps over to your CA when you get back or put them into your task list or calendar, then the rate of success increases.
