Are You Ho Hum or Are You Distinctive?

by Dr. Ron Arndt

Have you seen groups of bike riders on the road that appear non-descript, they come up on you unexpectedly or are easily ignored? I fear that they are the folks who are candidates to be hit or injured by inattentive drivers.

Dr. Ron with his bikeRecently I have taken up bicycling as an adjunct to my 3-mile powerwalks in order to maintain my humpty dumpty physique. What I’ve decided to do in my bike-riding routine is to Stand Out!

I want people to notice me – not for my good looks or because I’m a world-class athlete, but rather to be different and distinctive.

I want to make a statement that “I am here” – “you can’t miss me” – because I want to be able to safely ride my bike for years to come. I don’t want to be victim on the side of the road.

As a consequence my bike-riding garb is officially orange shoes,orange tops and orange-lined gloves. I admit this outfit doesn’t make me faster but it certainly makes me Stand Out! No Ho Hum for me! I like Distinctive!

How do you stand out in your Dental Practice?
