August 8, 2011 / 5 Comments

I love sharing and connecting with like-minded people. Years ago when I discovered the power of personal development, and journaling, I decided to write much of what I learned in this blog, share with the world, and make friends in the process.
Throughout this time, this blog has given me the opportunity to meet thousands of [...]

Losing 16.4 lbs in 42 Days

July 6, 2011 / 18 Comments

Eating by way of the Primal lifestyle is really second nature at this point. Meat, poultry, eggs, vegetables, nuts, butter, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, occassional small amounts of dairy, and my weekly piece of 85% dark chocolate – that’s the name of the game, and from it I’ve made a lot of tasty [...]

“Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire.” ~William Butler Yeats
Last night I had the honor of meeting one of my long time heros Mark Sisson. I think of this man every time I eat, literally, and he’s responsible for lightning a fire for me, many of my friends and family, and many [...]

January 16, 2011 / 28 Comments

Meaning, and ‘most meaningful’, are all very subjective terms. Pretty much everything we see, hear, and feel is open for interpretation, and skewed by our past experiences. I believe it’s the meaning that we choose to place on things, whether deliberately, or without thought, that is the driving force to why we make all of [...]

My Automated Morning in 2011 (and The Turkey Agreement)

January 13, 2011 / 8 Comments

I have to be honest, Dental School pushes me to my limits. A lot of times I feel like I’m paddling in the middle of the ocean, and just when I get a hold of a raft, they make things harder. They know exactly what we’re going through, they know when we adapt, and they [...]

RECENT VIDEOCAST

I ran for the position of Class Council President for my New York University School of Dentistry class – for our first year. I lost. While not every attempt can result in a win, I believe that we can learn from just about everything.
