Reflections from Dr. Dawson's Celebration of Life

Posted by Doug Brown on Wed, Sep 04, 2019 @ 18:09 PM

What does it take to be a world-influencer in the field of dentistry? An eclectic list of things I picked up.

- Carry 3" x 5" cards with you wherever you go, a) with a note of what area of life your going to do better in today, and b) to capture the ideas or information that will come to you through the day

- Pursue life with passion

- Love enthusiastically, particularly your spouse, children and grandchildren

- Ask yourself, why am I doing what I'm doing (in dentistry)? and is there a better way of doing it?

- Share your lessons with others

- Stick up for what you know is right, even when the establishment tries to shut you up

- Care deeply for your colleagues

- Take an active interest in their lives

- Find the positives in adversity and enjoy them

- Sing and make music

- Live your life with integrity

- Study and learn throughout your life

- Read fast

- Keep working on your next book even when your end is in sight

- Make daily study of the Bible a priority, putting the lessons learned into practice

- Love Jesus

If you get a chance to see a recording of the service celebrating Dr. Dawson's life, watch it! I think you'll find it will be worth it.
