I’m really not that old.
This age difference was really apparent this summer when my oldest daughter spent an afternoon writing letters to her friends. And by letters, I don’t mean texts, Facebook updates, or even e-mails. I mean the good old-fashioned kind of letters–handwritten on paper, folded into an envelope and put into the mailbox. She did it just for fun…to see what it was like. She has a real interest in everything vintage: clothing, decorations, cars, and even communication methods. She finds real enjoyment in pondering the way things “used to be.”
And there’s nothing wrong with “snail mail.” It works. The letters eventually get there, and you might even get a reply. Trust me, I’m old enough to remember.
But at the same time, I also know that modern communication methods are far more efficient and often more effective at getting the job done. That’s why I don’t really write letters much anymore.
What does this have to do with Acupuncture?
There are vintage ways of learning Acupuncture and remembering what you learned. Textbooks, flash cards, class notes, memorization–the standard learning methods used for hundreds of years. And there are modern ways of learning and recalling information. Both work and both get the job done. But one is much faster, more efficient, and requires less work than the other. Which you choose is up to you, but given the pace of modern practice and the odds of failure, I’m going to grab whatever added efficiency I can.
That’s why I created Points PC. I was tired of flipping through reference books, multiple texts and class note every time I needed to recall some obscure fact or point. And though I’m not a student, I’m in touch with many who are equally as tired of carrying around stacks of flash cards and piles of notes to learn the points.
Points PC is simply a better way.
Let’s face it. None of us can always recall every piece of acupuncture information we ever need. So we’re left with a choice: Dust off the textbooks and class notes while your patient looks on and loses confidence by the minute, or click some software and instantly get to the information you need.
Which will impress your patient? Which will make you more efficient? Which helps build your practice? Food for thought.
And here’s one more item to think about. We’re celebrating the release of Points PC with a 25% discount on this already affordable software. It’s ridiculously cheap and incredibly powerful, so I recommend you check it out before the discount expires.
