We tend to have expectations about almost everything. How our dinner will taste. How good that new movie will be. How busy our day at work will be. Spoken or not, there’s a way we expect things to turn out.
This is especially true when it comes to any new project or big venture. If you make an investment in your pharmacy, you have expectations as to how things will work and what improvements you’ll see.
But sometimes things turn out to be different than you thought they would. The likelihood of something not being exactly the way you envisioned it is actually pretty high when you’re talking fundamental changes in the way your pharmacy operates. Here’s the important thing though. Different than you expected doesn’t necessarily mean bad. Specifically in the world of technology, things change so fast that it’s hard to keep up with what’s possible, let alone develop realistic expectations surrounding those possibilities. Often, something that pushes the boundaries of what you thought you wanted can actually be beneficial.
So when you make a change, and if that change ends up looking a little different than you thought it might, think about the possibilities that are now unlocked. You might just find that though it’s different than you expected, it actually is better than you expected.
