Are You Stuck in a Confirmation Bias Cage? Get Out Now!

Are You Stuck in a Confirmation Bias Cage? Get Out Now!

As I always say, you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with, and it’s crucial to ponder where you are spending your time and who’s influencing you.

I’ve got about five people in my life, none of them orthodontists, who’ve shaped me immensely.

Dreamers in commercial real estate, private equity, regular business – I love feeling like the dumbest person in the room because that’s where the magic of learning happens.

In the ortho world, sure, I have my mentors, my ortho buddies, and the fantastic folks at the Orthopreneurs RD group, but expanding beyond that is crucial.

So, here’s my plea for 2024: evaluate who you’re spending time with. If it’s the same crew on repeat, you’re in a risky confirmation bias zone.

Get diverse opinions!
