Dental Practice: Thief of Joy

By Dr. Mark Costes

May 10, 2022

The Road Less Traveled

The road that we travel as dental practice owners and clinicians varies individually while holding many of the same benchmarks and similarities.

It can be challenging not to compare yourself to classmates and colleagues and assume that you are falling behind. However, in coaching our members I regularly remind them of one of my favorite quotes: 


“Comparison is the thief of joy.” –Theodore Roosevelt 


It can be easy to fall into the trap of assuming that you are behind the curve in your professional career if you are constantly holding yourself to the standards of someone who may be on a different trajectory. 

You could be weighing your chapter 1 against their chapter 10 or viewing their highlight reel and assuming that is what everyday life should look like.
