There’s something about West Texans. They’re different.
I’ve made many friends from West Texas over the years and sensed early on they were a different breed of cat.
One evening, having dinner with a former hospital administrator, I asked what made West Texans tick.
“Bill, let me explain it this way. I was raised on a ranch. Things break down all the time, tractors, fences, water well, all go kaput. We don’t call someone over to fix things, we do it ourselves. We’re self sufficient and don’t rely on others to solve our problems.”
Plan sponsors adopting a West Texas mindset have solved health care. They don’t rely on others to fix their problems. They don’t seek help from strangers in Chicago or Minneapolis.
They fix things themselves.
