Happy Saturday! January disappeared in a flash, and we are now half way through February. Australia has bought lots of vaccines, and, there is a new contender, a vaccine from Johnson and Johnson – one dose, adenovirus vector, fewer refrigeration issues. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine comes out of decades of research on adenovirus-based vaccines. Clinical trials showed that a single dose of the vaccine had an efficacy rate of up to 72 percent. It’s going to be a big few months of immunisations! Today though, I’m going to hark back to 1937 and a classic book by Napoleon Hill, ‘Think and Grow Rich’.

Mr Hill interviewed many millionaires in the writing of this book and attempted to distill their habits into some rules and systems that everyone could use to achieve wealth. As an aside here, he merely looked at how they accumulated wealth. He didn’t look at what they did with it. In fact, one well known rule from the book that everyone would do well to adopt is, ‘Nothing substitutes for pleasing conduct’. Be positive, smile, do right by others, serve. This brings good energy to your life and deeds. How does this play out in real life?

A practical application of this is to reframe when something is difficult. Rather than saying ‘I can’t’, go with ‘I don’t know how to do that yet’. This lends itself to finding solutions. This is the thinking that has given us vaccines. This is the thinking that gives us progress. This is the thinking that keeps us going forwards.

PartridgeGP works with you to help you make your best health decisions, and we won’t back away from being your companion, guide, advisor, and sounding board through your health journey. We enjoy learning with you and are very happy to say ‘we don’t know how to do that yet’ rather than shutting things down with ‘we can’t’. We pride ourselves on great communication and we’re ready to share our professional skills and knowledge with you. This is only MORE important now, in the time of a global pandemic with a new vaccine on the horizon. The way forward is clear: make your appointment with us conveniently online right here – or call our friendly reception team on 82953200.

Better, for you.

For everyone, we believe that having a usual GP or General Practice is central to each person’s care and recommend that people with any health issues that come to the attention of other health professionals should be advised to attend their usual GP or General Practice rather than a specialised service (ie a place not providing the holistic care a specialist GP would).   If  they say that they don’t have a usual GP or general practice, they should be helped to find one and to actually attend it. Call PartridgeGP on 82953200 or make an appointment online here.
