Enjoying these moments is easier said than done...

Published about 1 month agoΒ β€’Β 4 min read


Hey Friends,

Week 2 of fatherhood has been pretty good overall!

The biggest thing I am finding myself slipping up on is thinking about work or "the next phase" instead of fully immersing myself in this one.

I feel like part of that is because I had a few open loops for work like content review and a brand deal that I am working on...

These were supposed to be done by the end of February so that I could lock in on navigating fatherhood and supporting Neha starting March 6 (Naira's original due date) but she came 3 weeks early LOL

All that being said - I have closed the loops and am committing to going "zero dark thirty" for this month.

This means blocking out using social media apps and keeping my phone on do not disturb for a majority of the day for the next 30 days.

It means focusing on the things going on IN my house first before reaching for the phone to see what is going on people's stories.

I have heard it a million times "enjoy these moments"

I am learning very quickly that you can't enjoy these moments when your mind is somewhere else.

"Enjoying these moments" is easier said than done because as much as I want to focus on being here in this moment I can't help but think about the future...

Will Naira ever sleep through the night?

Will our schedules ever return to normal?

Will the business continue to grow even if I am not working on it?

The answer to these questions is YES... it will just take TIME and I have to TRUST.

And that is my plan.

More trust - less stress.

This is the challenge that I am accepting.

I am grateful to have time in my life now and have control over what I work on and do.

This is something that I have worked hard to make a reality and now that it is here I do not want to waste it.

You may be in a similar position in life right now where you are trying to navigate a new scenario or environment.

Maybe you made some promises to yourself about wanting to change and you haven't followed through on them.

It's ok.

Nobody is perfect.

You STILL have the ability to change by taking 1 action today towards your goal.

Whether it is a clinical, financial, or personal goal.

Whatever that action is - I challenge you to act on it today.

Do it for your future self - you won't regret it πŸ˜‰

Ok I gotta run - Naira is sleeping on my chest and it's feeding time.


Have a great weekend!

Hey Friends, The question posed in the subject may seem redundant to you but focus and "things to focus on" is an interesting concept. Some people think they need to be doing multiple things at once to be productive. Others think they just need to focus on one thing at a time and chip away. I don't know if there is a right answer but lately I have been doing a combo of both. It's helped me make INSANE strides in MEANINGFUL projects that I am working on right now. In the last 2 weeks I have...

Hey Doc, I'll keep this week's newsletter short. A lot of people have been asking me to bring back one of my original programs because they said they wanted a starter program where they could still gain confidence with aligners but at a more approachable price point... I fought it for the longest time because I thought everyone wanted ALL of the value and support that comes with Aligner Launchpad (hence the investment amount) But I realized this was ME thinking about ME. And you are not me....

Hey Friends, I have been losing sleep lately not only because of our newborn Naira... Because I have been trying to find ways to better support you and bring value to you. Almost every dentist says that they have patients that tell them "aligners are too expensive" or "I need to think about it..." So I thought let me just share a video that will walk you through how to overcome that objection... WATCH VIDEO NOW (By the way I pulled this video from the modules that docs get in Aligner...
