Last week Finn was at the park and was watching a group of adults playing tennis.
His babysitter said he was watching them play for an hour.
When he came back home, he told me he wanted to buy a tennis racket and wanted to learn how to play.
I agreed I would take him.
For the next few days, he kept reminding that I agreed to take him.
This weekend, we bought him a tennis racket and has been playing for hours hitting the balls against the garage door.
He has gone to the park with Sarah and played with her.
He gets really frustrated that he is not great at it instantaneously. He’s very impatient.
Sarah and I have been reminding him that whatever he does, he will need to work really hard and consistently to get really good at it. It takes time and practice.
This year will be my twentieth year since I graduated from the University of Iowa Dental School.
I remember when I first started dentistry, I would be exhausted after a day of work. I saw maybe 3 patients in that day. It required a massive amount of concentration with any procedure that I did.
Doing something for 20 years, creates a level of predictability and accuracy. Doing the same thing over and over again creates efficiency.
The patient feels it when they are in the chair.
Almost on a daily basis I hear, “Wow, I can tell you guys have been doing this for a while.”
People can feel certainty and confidence. People can feel experience.
