Event: Dr. Jeffrey Dorfman Speaks to 100+ Students

Last week I had the privilege of hosting an event in NYU Dental School. Over 100 students attended. As an executive member of the school’s Aesthetics club, I wanted to bring the students together to learn about a top aesthetic case out in private practice. The speaker was also a very successful businessman, and we [...]

Personal Development Group

Personal Development Group

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

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 [...]

21 Day Challenge: Transition From Sugar Burner to Fat Burner Metabolism

No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means. ~Maimonides
During the past semester of dental school (or more accurately, the past 2 years of it), I spent a lot of time eating shit. Many 16-hour study days, fueled by barrels of coffee filled with sugar, and layers upon layers [...]

Meet the Authors: Tim Ferriss and Ramit Sethi

Meet the Authors: Tim Ferriss and Ramit Sethi

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” ~Mark Twain
Now that the second year is behind me I get about a minute to breathe as I transition into clinic and start studying for the board exam.
My idea of using that minute is spending time with good [...]

No Judgment: Why Mark Sisson doesn’t want you to do the dishes

No Judgment: Why Mark Sisson doesn’t want you to do the dishes

“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 [...]

The Most Meaningful Thing You Hope to Accomplish In Life

The Most Meaningful Thing You Hope to Accomplish In Life

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)

My Automated Morning in 2011 (and The Turkey Agreement)

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 [...]

Responsibility. Integrity. Civility.

My bud Chris Brogan doesn’t do New Year resolutions. For several years now, he just picks three words that he uses to guide him through both his everyday and business decisions. He put it out there as a challenge for us to think of our own three words for 2011.
I was riding the bus from [...]

Homeless for the Holidays

Homeless for the Holidays

“Charity is not a luxury, it’s a necessity.”
~Jane Panitch
Last night I decided to watch a little bit of Hulu. The movie Homeless for the Holidays, starring Matt Moore as Jack Baker (who IMHO resembles Adam Sandler), was up on the popular list, so I went for it.
Spoiler alert:
The Baker family was in trouble financially, [...]
