Look for the * for today’s advice.
Vannevar Bush 1890
He urges that men of science should then turn to the massive task of making more accessible our bewildering store of knowledge. For years inventions have extended man’s physical powers rather than the powers of his mind. Trip hammers that multiply the fists, microscopes that sharpen the eye, and engines of destruction and detection are new results, but not the end results, of modern science.
THE RIGHT TIME?
From razor-sharp focus to creative thinking, your brain is at its best at different hours of the day. Here’s how to plan your day for greatness
Having a healthy daily routine keeps functioning at the highest level possible on all three planes of existence – mind, body, and spirit.
*Plan today for greatness. In fact, get in the habit of planning out each day… never mind, that’s what you have 365DOLF for.
Anthony Davis 1993 – groom yourself
Davis, known for his connected eyebrows, trademarked the phrases “Fear The Brow” and “Raise The Brow” earlier this month.
*Groom yourself everywhere. Especially those eyebrows.
Bobby McFerrin 1950 – “Don’t Worry be Happy”
Listening to Bobby McFerrin sing may be hazardous to your preconceptions.
Side effects may include unparalleled joy, a new perspective on creativity, rejection of the predictable, and a sudden, irreversible urge to lead a more spontaneous existence.
*Listen to this song when you wake up and right before you go to bed. Make it part of your daily plan for success.
Rupert Murdoch 1931
Murdoch’s empire has grown to include investment in DIRECTV and a number of social networking sites while his movie studio, 21st Century Fox, has created box office hits such as “Titanic” and “Avatar.”
Beyond lobbying, Murdoch and his company have made millions of dollars in political contributions. (Murdoch himself has given more than $130,000 in the last decade. News Corp. has given about $1.7 million.) Though he makes no secret of his right-leaning views and has generally backed political conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic, Murdoch’s donations over the years have often been less ideological than opportunistic.
Murdoch has personally given money to Sens. John Kerry and Chuck Schumer, two of the most liberal Democrats in the Senate. He even held a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s Senate reelection campaign, which reportedly netted $60,000, while personally giving $2,100 to the cause.
*Another reason to strive for more money is unfortunate but true – money can be used to help your political agenda. If you’re like me and have given up on politics, keep that money and help fix society on your own.
Johnny Knoxville 1971 watch Jackass
What kind of women are you looking for these days?
Whatever’s within reaching distance. Proximity is very important to me. Otherwise, I’m not that picky. Eighteen to 80, blind, crippled or crazy.
*Watch the original Jackass movie as a complete escape from reality today.
Lawrence Welk 1903 – chicken and dumplings
I do not believe that I would have had the courage to face up to my shyness, however, had I not first recognized God as my Creator, shyness and all, Christ as my strength and example, and the Holy Spirit as my source of constant inspiration.
*Don’t be shy – enjoy Lawrence Welk’s chicken and dumplings while watching Jackass.
