Money won’t make you happy, but happiness will make you money.
At this point in your life, you must be able to distinguish pleasure from happiness. Although both bring joy and good feelings, they produce contrasting outcomes. Pleasure is momentary and visceral, while happiness is long-lasting and transcendental.
Listen in as I dig deeper into the realities of happiness. We will talk about positive psychology and the narcissism epidemic brought about by the disruption in social media. We’ll also look at how we can prioritize happiness, what it looks like tactically, and what you can do to guarantee a culture of happiness in your practice.

- “How do we get so unhappy? This is not an ok thing to do, but it almost becomes a norm.”
- “We see it on social media all of the time where people lose their minds and hurt people. They unleash on someone else in a situation that doesn’t call for it.”
- “We need to figure out ways not only to get to function but how do we get to high function.”
- “Most of my adult life, I spent on this “I’ll be happy when” treadmill.”
- “I need to supplement my natural behaviors with tools that allow me to enjoy the day and the now and be more present.”
- “The one thing that’s taking us down right now is technology.”
- “We’re utilizing technology tools to help leverage and make our lives better, but if we’re not careful, it can be super destructive.”
- “Social media, the more we use it, the lonelier we get. We call it social, but it’s not social at all.”
- “In a dental practice, the five people that most likely you will spend your time with are the people on your payroll, so you have to be very selective.”
