We are so thankful for this team! They pushed themselves so hard this year and turned December into our best month yet. Not only that but they but our dream event! Without them none of this would’ve been possible!
Today let’s practice observing impermanence in visual sensations.
The world around us can feel so solid. Observing how the things we see come and go and change can help us experience that things aren’t as fixed as they seem. The seeming solidity and continuity of what we see are tricks of the mind. Wonder and relief are available when we take the time to learn to see through them.
Did you know that simply pouring a cup of tea can be a work of art.

Everyone wants to be happy. But what kind of happiness do we want? Is it happiness experienced moment-to-moment? Or is it broader, as in being able to look back and remember a time as happy? Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman described this distinction as “being happy in your life” (experienced happiness) versus “being happy about your life” (remembered happiness). The two don’t always go hand in hand. For example, a weekend spent relaxing in front of the TV could make you happy in the moment, but later you may feel guilty about it. Whereas a week of working late, while not fun exactly, might make you feel satisfied in hindsight if you were extra productive. Researchers asked thousands of Americans ages 18 to 81 about their preference between experienced and remembered happiness, and found it largely depended on the time period they were considering. When choosing a longer time period, like the duration of their lives, 79% said they'd rather feel experienced happiness. But when thinking about the next hour, their preferences were split down the middle. People who favored experienced happiness mostly expressed a belief in seizing the present moment, and people who chose remembered happiness had a desire to feel something longer lasting, to treasure memories, or to ultimately feel productive and proud. Which kind of happiness is most valuable to you, right now and over the course of your life? Share your thoughts in the comments. CREDIT: CAROL YEPES/GETTY IMAGES

It takes a lot more energy doing things you dislike, because you “have to” than simply saying eff it, and just doing what you want.
. . .
I think it takes a lot of energy to just be comfortable with where you are. Often times that comfort zone is matched with worry. Worrying if you do this, then what? What will they think? How will I get that done?
. . .
But I dunno, maybe it’s just me, but why not just go for it, get out of your comfort zone and save the energy for the things you love (and laughing with your bishes, of course).

Year 3: Day 187 - As a Marine, I always enjoyed developing curricula and teaching it in a simplified, organized way to my fellow Marines. The complex and highly technical nature of our work demanded a discovery mindset from everyone who wore the uniform, and it was from that mindset that my team reaped repeated successes.
Today, I'm often lauded for my passion for dentistry, but I don't think I'm all that special. I'm an ordinary guy in an extraordinary position. I've been trusted with the priviledge of serving my fellow citizens through dentistry, and I take that very seriously. That said, I'm committed to fueling my discovery mindset with continuing education and persistent exposure to mentors who are smarter and far more ambitious than me. This not only makes me more versatile in the ever-evolving landscape of modern dentistry, but also keeps me humble.
Perhaps most humbling is the pursuit of learning something well enough to teach it. In fact, it's often the simple the act of teaching others that promotes the synapsing of neurons and monumental self-growth. But who teaches the teachers? I've been blessed with great mentors who don't just teach me how to be a good dentist, but also how to be a good dad, friend, and teacher. This generosity is something we all must emulate if we want to keep our profession and humanity alive.
My friend Mark Konings @markskonings recently said, "In giving we receive." With a new year fast approaching, I encourage everyone to think long and hard on his words.
12 Days of DAT: Day 3️⃣
Organic Chemistry: 29
This was my best section which was surprising, but I do weirdly enjoy organic chemistry more than general chemistry. I decided to take the DAT in the summer after I finished organic chemistry 2, and I would recommend this to everyone because it kept the reactions & major concepts relatively fresh in in my mind. .
I started my organic chemistry review phase once I finished the gen chem review videos/ notes in bootcamp. I took notes on Mike’s outlines and did the quizzes at the end of each review section.
Once I finished my thorough review which took about 4 weeks, I began taking organic practice timed tests every other day. I took all 10 available timed tests on DAT Q vault which have extremely helpful explanations. I also took organic section tests 1-5 on bootcamp. I would review DAT Q vault explanations whenever I had time throughout my day. It was great for me to use DAT Bootcamp’s organic section tests along with Q vaults because the questions were asked a bit differently. This prepared me to know the material inside and out so I could work through questions on the real DAT that might be formulated in a different way.
Another resource I utilized was the website Master Organic Chemistry. They have some good free information that I used on Acids & Bases. 🧪 .
Orgo is a subject most people dred and it is tough, but it is definitely do-able. With consistency and a good understanding of major concepts, you guys will do great in this section! I never scored above a 24 on an organic bootcamp or Q Vault test, but I ended up with a 29 on the real thing. Be confident and believe in yourself. You don’t have to be a chemistry genius to own this section! ✅
Organic Chemistry TIP: Print out the DAT bootcamp reaction sheets. Personally, I wrote and re wrote the reactions out to better remember them. Study the reactions for about 15 minutes a day for a couple weeks and you will have them memorized in no time. 🧠
