Sharing some take home messages following our weekend in Vegas!

What an amazing weekend! For those that don't know Dr. Carol and I went to Las Vegas last weekend to attend the Parker Chiropractic Seminar. It was a wonderful event and we were so excited to catch up with friends and colleagues that we have not seen since before COVID.

Our weekend was filled with clinical pearls from amazing professionals with backgrounds in a variety of different fields. I don't think that all of those bits of wisdom would necessarily be helpful for all of you, but there were some amazing keynote speakers. The keynote speakers that we got to see included Ryan Holiday, Patrick Bet-David, Nita Farahany, and David Goggins. While these keynote presenters were fantastic, we also got to learn from legendary Strength and Conditioning coaches Dan John and Mike Boyle. Unfortunately, we missed Simon Sinek's keynote because we needed to fly out before he took the stage. This week I want to share some of the quick take-home messages that I got from their lectures.

"The answer is usually obvious, but rarely easy."
- Dan John

"Exercise is the lowest tech way to improve cognitive function... Kids need to learn to run with their legs, not their thumbs."
- Nita Farahany
"Every exercise has a benefit, but ALSO has a cost. Need to balance the risk and the reward."
- Mike Boyle

"Our family is our legacy... Enjoy your home now. One day the house will be there but the people will not. What will you do then?"
-Patrick Bet-David

"It is not the things that happen that upset us, it is our reaction that upsets us. We can only control how we respond to what happens."
-Ryan Holiday 

"The most important conversation you'll ever have is the one that you have with yourself."
- David Goggins

Each of these statements resonated with me. The interpretation of each of these could be a separate newsletter... So you may see me expand on them a little more in the coming weeks, but for now, I want you to ask yourself which of these statements had the most impact on you? 

Why do you think that it resonated with you?
