Play in the Rectangle without Being Defined by the Box

Strategic leader with a knack for building powerfully, productive teams. Former US Army Medic, Certified Personal Trainer, Doctor of Chiropractic Student, & Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Hopeful. En route to becoming a Musculoskeletal Radiologist, I am on a mission to learn everything there is to know about muscles, bones, joints, and the nervous system, living a fitness lifestyle, and applying that knowledge to maximizing human potential. I would also love to see health care organizations implement that knowledge to eliminate chronic pain and disease.
We Are Raising the Bar. Health is not an entitlement for the privileged few. It is a birthright that should be enjoyed by all. The Fitness Lifestyle organizes scientific knowledge into action steps, in order to prevent chronic health conditions and maximize human potential. This design is a representation of that lifestyle. It was designed specifically for physically active, sporty families; however, this lifestyle is for everyone.
According to Gallup’s collection of surveys, only a third of people say they have an opportunity to do what they do best at work every day. Let’s put that into perspective. At least 7.7 million people are living every single day of life below their potential. They are not on a track to maximize their potential. They are not even on a track to meet their potential. They are not emotionally engaged at work. They are not earning what they deserve. They are not living the life they imagined. They are not doing the job they were hired to do. And they are teaching their children that this is an acceptable existence. What’s the point of this? And when does it end?
Every human is original and uniquely encoded with gifts and talents to fulfill a specific purpose. Living unfulfilled is not a part of that encoding. Each of us has a choice of how to use our gifts and talents. We can keep those gifts to ourselves and use them to advance as an individual. Conversely, we can share our gifts and talents, work with our brothers and sisters, and advance synergistically as a whole. I believe working together is the essence of maximizing human potential as an individual and as a collective.
Do not live every single day of life below your potential. Identify your gifts and talents. Use them to positively affect your life through service to others.
Talk to you soon,

Effective immediately, I will no longer publish new music toThe Best R&B Ever on this site. I will continue to publish the list; however, it will be migrated to my new website the R&B Archives (www.rnbarchives.com). I made this decision after a great deal of thought. Ultimately, I will be able to discuss R&B more extensively if it is housed on its own site. I will continue to publish R&B history on the new site. It will also contain more artist profiles, albums, lyrics, and playlists. I am already working on playlists from all of the decades that R&B has been in existence.
Below is a snapshot of the new site’s homepage.
DocDesmondRadio.com will be dedicated to health, fitness, entrepreneurship, and my journey to become a Musculoskeletal Radiologist. Thank you.

The Best R&B Ever is a list of R&B songs that I consider to be the greatest of all time. The list is not in any specific order. However, my goal is to collaboratively create a playlist of R&B tracks that provide hours of listing pleasure. R&B is a genre of music that is being forgotten. It is being lumped together with Hip-hop, but R&B is the origin of many genres of music. With that being said, I believe we need to preserve the genre. We do that by paying respects to the many artists and composers that have given us this amazing music. So, make sure you like, comment, and share. I will rank the playlist in fan favorite order, according to the number of total votes, once we get to 100 songs.
There are two lists below. The first one is my list of 100. I have already published a few, but more are coming soon. My goals is to post at least one song every couple of days. Please, take some time to review the list. Visit the individual post of each song. And make sure to like the post, if you want to vote for that song. Also, feel free to share the songs that you love to your social media. Ask your friends and family to vote.
The second list is a fan list. I would love to get another 100 suggestions from you. The voting will be the same. Visit the individual post of each song. And make sure to like the post, if you want to vote for that song. Also, feel free to share the songs that you love to your social media. Ask your friends and family to vote.
Contest & Prizes
I’m thinking about making this into a contest. Voting will take place on DocDesmondRadio.com and all of my social media accounts, including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. I will keep a count of total votes for each song. And I want to have a bracket challenge, similar to a sports tournament. You will get a chance to predict the top ten for a chance to earn prizes.
