Look to the * for today’s advice.



Harvey Cushing 1869

He challenged both his students in the audience who were leaders in the field of neurosurgery and all future neurosurgeons by quoting Leonardo da Vinci: “It is a mediocre pupil who does not excel his master.”


*Don’t be a mediocre pupil in life. Hopefully you’ve had someone “show you the ropes”, strive to be better than that person. My students get sick of me telling them to never be a teacher.


Robin Wright 1966

Pour Les Femmes is a socially conscious sleepwear company founded by actress and activist Robin Wright and designer Karen Fowler. The two friends started their company with one goal in mind: to make simple, beautiful, and quality pieces while creating economic opportunity for women in conflict regions around the globe.



Her favorite workout are Latin-inspired Zumba dance classes.

‘With Zumba, you’re dancing, you’re moving your hips. So much fun,’ she says.




*Take a Zumba class today. Watch her as the POTUS in House of Cards later while wearing a set of her pajamas from plfdreams.com – wear these pajamas all day tomorrow in honor of Hugh Hefner’s birthday.  I love you Jenny!


Betty Ford 1918

“As our nation’s first lady, she was a powerful advocate for women’s health and women’s rights,” he said. “After leaving the White House, Mrs. Ford helped reduce the social stigma surrounding addiction and inspired thousands to seek much-needed treatment.”


*In honor of Betty Ford, don’t have an alcoholic drink all day.


Robert Kiyosaki 1947

His point of view is that the old advice of “get a good job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify” is bad (both obsolete and flawed) advice. This challenges the status quo. His assertion that “your house is not an asset” has stirred controversy, but it has been proven to be accurate in our economy’s current financial crisis.


*Read this book and learn. It is the impetus for 365DOLF’s insistence on you creating your own job through starting your own business and cash flow. Don’t make someone else more money. Make yourself money and create jobs for someone else. My dad taught me how to work hard for someone else – which he did for 65 years. Learn how to work hard for yourself and then pass it down to your kids.


Chris Kyle 1974 – watch American Sniper

Be Mature and Strong Enough to Make Big Compromises

After a while, the burden of responsibility can wear down even the most hardened of steel warriors, especially when there are not enough hours in the day to fulfill all promised duties. Chris was a father, a husband, and a member of one of the most elite fighting forces on the planet. Each one of these jobs requires great time and sacrifice. But one of the biggest decisions we have to make in our lives is what takes priority. Who and what do we owe our lives to?



To continue to spread the mission and vision of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, the Foundation welcomes volunteers to submit their contact information to us.

Our aim is to create a highly connected community that allows us to deliver interactive experiences to military and first responder families around the country.

The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation aims to create a ripple effect through the positive experiences it creates and developing advocates for the Foundation in these ways.


*Watch Bradley Cooper as American Sniper Chris Kyle and think of signing up to volunteer for his foundation – another way to donate time and energy instead of money.

Patricia Arquette, Executive Director
Patricia Arquette founded GiveLove in January 2010 after the devastating earthquake in Haiti. Her hands-on approach to ecological sanitation has inspired the best experts in the field to work on our programs. Patricia’s interest in promoting compost sanitation and improving public health is motivated by the desire to protect water resources, restore soil fertility, and create more resilient communities. Most recently, Patricia spent over a month at Standing Rock to help build over 100 compost toilets.




*Watch Patricia Arquette win an Oscar in Boyhood while eating these potato Patricia croquettes.

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.
