Join us on the latest episode of the Daily Dental Podcast with your host, Dr. Addison Killeen as he delves into the concepts of anticipation and expectations. Anticipation is portrayed as an exhilarating perspective on the future, free from the need to control it. This mindset enables individuals to look forward to upcoming events, such as vacations or the potential growth of their practice, without trying to dictate the outcomes. Expectations, in contrast, are characterized as an attempt to predict the future and link one's happiness to a specific outcome, which can lead to disappointment. If we can embrace anticipation while avoiding entitlement and rigid expectations, it will allow for a more open and enjoyable approach to life.
