Look for the $ for today’s advice.

MAKE MONEY DAY

MIND

Steve Jobs 1955

“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things–that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before.”

What Jobs described in that passage is readily identifiable as a specific type of meditation, usually called “mindfulness,” that’s taught in Zen Buddhism and its Chinese antecedent, Taoism. When Jobs was talking to Isaacson not long before he died, he had been practicing such meditation for many years.

$Boxing is one of the best workouts you can do. This won’t be the last time it is suggested. Most boxing gyms will give you a free trial membership and supply you with wraps and gloves. If you can’t get to a gym, you can still do most of “Money” Mayweather’s workout.

SOUL

Honus Wagner 1874

“Doing the easy thing and doing the right thing are not always the same,” says Paul Domencic, who’s taking on the role of Johannes Peter Wagner in the play “Honus & Me.”

During his career, baseball cards were packaged with tobacco, something he didn’t like.

“The card was discontinued on his insistence because he didn’t support tobacco,” Domencic says. “He was avidly against smoking.”

Because of Wagner’s decision, copies of his card were very limited, making them extremely valuable.

Wagner’s easy-going nature was legendary. He never bothered to negotiate contracts with Dreyfuss, preferring instead to simply accept what the owner felt he was worth.

$When making decisions today, ask yourself – what is the easy answer and what is the right answer to the question. Go with the right answer and maybe one day your baseball card will be the most valuable in the world. And if you do smoke, quit today.

MONEY

Regardless, the now self-made billionaire didn’t let the naysayers deter him from launching his company. He refused to stop, and “that’s the precocious, prescient, urgent advice I managed to give myself, out of the blue, and somehow managed to take,” he writes.

“Half a century later, I believe it’s the best advice — maybe the only advice — any of us should ever give.”

Twenty years later, Titanic was a big enough deal that we’re still talking about this stuff, so whether or not Cal got a bad rap, the good news for Billy Zane is that he got to be part of a movie that mattered so much during its release and that has continued to garner attention over the years. Bad rap or no, that’s not a bad place to be at all.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
