AND THE PIPS DAY

MIND

Ian Fleming 1908

Image result for ian fleming

As he strolled barefoot on his private beach at GoldenEye, in Oracabessa Bay, he dreamed up one of the most lasting characters in global literature and cinema. Today, Fleming Villa remains the inspiring setting for pleasure and imagination.

Decorate with images that speak to you. 

Ground your space with a colorful area rug—for visual interest and soothing sound-absorption.

*Today is the day to start rearranging your house, (or at least your work area) to make it the setting for pleasure and imagination. You may not have a private beach but you can find ways to make the place where you live be more inspiring and entertaining. Maybe you’ll come up with the next James Bond.

Jerry West 1938

Image result for jerry west

Does the NBA pay Jerry West royalties for using his image and printing it on the mountains of merchandise they sell?

The short answer is “No.” That’s also the long answer, because the NBA won’t admit that it’s Jerry West on the logo.

*Get paid for what you deserve – don’t settle for anything less.

ENTERTAINMENT

“Throw away self-pity, don’t give time to self-hate, and most importantly, stay away from people who make you feel bad about yourself.”

BEER BREAD DAY

MIND

Jim Koch 1949

Image result for jim koch sam adams

“Two craft breweries open every day in this country. It is very competitive. But if it makes you happy, do it. You’re better off being happy than rich. Being rich is a booby prize for people who didn’t get what they really wanted.” 

*If it makes you happy, do it. Maybe the best advice all year. Drink a Samuel Adams and continue to work on your dream business.

BODY

Lily-Rose Depp

Image result for Lily-Rose Depp

“I actually do love working out. It makes me feel happy – it releases endorphins and makes you feel good. I like to walk places as much as I can and keep active. I think if you’re having a bad day, go and run around or walk around! I think it makes you feel better.”

*Go and run around or walk around with your dad. It’ll make you feel better.

SOUL

Rachel Carson 1907

Image result for rachel carson

There’s a cartoon from the 1960s, portraying a praying mantis with its front legs folded up, praying, saying “God bless momma and poppa…and Rachel Carson!”

*Rachel Carson may have saved more souls than anyone. You don’t need to be a religious leader to save souls. You can save some today, if you’d like. Read Silent Spring for motivation.

MONEY

Cornelius Vanderbilt 1794

Image result for cornelius vanderbilt

With $100 borrowed from his parents, Cornelius Vanderbilt purchased a periauger (a flat-bottomed sailing barge) and began a ferry service between Staten Island and Manhattan.

At the time of his death in 1877, the Commodore was worth $105 million, a larger sum than in the United States Treasury at the time.

*If you haven’t started your business yet, take $100 (borrowed from your parents, if need be) and use it to start your business. Even if it is securing a domain name – anything to get the ship moving.

Image result for jamie oliver

“Take beer bread, for example. All you need is 375g of flour, 3 teaspoons of sugar, and a 330ml bottle of fragrant beer. No yeast, no warm water, no kneading, no proving. The yeast and the air bubbles are in the beer already – you just mix it, bake it for 45 minutes, then eat it. Probably with a beer.”

*Listen to Outkast while making Jamie Oliver’s beer bread. Use Samuel Adams.

Stevie Nicks 1948

Image result for stevie nicks

“We were probably the perfect, complete, crazy pair. He was the one that I would have married, and that I would probably have changed my life around for a little bit. Not a lot. But he wouldn’t have changed his life either.”

“We were both ‘really seriously drug addicts. We were a couple on the way to hell.”

*Be with someone that isn’t dragging you to Hell with them. Seek help for them and you if needed. Listen to Stevie Nicks for inspiration.

MONEY

Hank Williams, Jr. 1949

Image result for hank williams jr

“Well now money can’t buy you happiness but neither can poor ole me
Money won’t help you very much if you wanna find true love
But that don’t mean just being poor will make you better off”

*Don’t be a martyr. All things equal, go for the money. Don’t strive to be poor – you won’t be able to help anyone, most importantly yourself. Strive to be rich and then give it all away, if you truly want to be poor. Listen to Hank Williams, Jr. for motivation.

“Do you believe in anything? I had to ask myself that in Have A Little Faith. And by the end, when I sadly have to take pen to paper and write the farewell for a man I have come to love and respect, I find that I believe in more than I thought. And perhaps you will, too.”

*With the passing of my father, I have to believe that he is in a better place. He worked his whole life to get into heaven and if it was all for nothing, then he still lived a noble life. As I “put pen to paper” to create 365DOLF, I have come to question my faith but stay focused on living my best life.
