June 2

Look for the * for today’s advice.



Martha Washington 1731

Just as her husband realized that his every action might set a precedent for future presidents, so Martha, too, was aware that her behavior as first lady would become the template for the wives of future chief executives. One of her most important steps was to initiate a weekly reception, held on Friday evenings, for anyone who would like to attend.


*Realize that your behavior may be the template for someone today, and act accordingly.


Abby Wambach 1980 – mountain bike

“I like to run, watch-free. I also love to mountain bike in our off-season — going downhill gives me an adrenaline rush!”


*I live in Florida so going downhill doesn’t happen very often, but the good news is there’s not a lot of uphill battles either. Run, watch-free, or go mountain biking today. Play soccer later.


Wayne Brady 1972

Following Williams’ death by hanging in August, Brady took to Twitter to express his grief.

“Depression is real,” he wrote. “God Bless Him and his family.”

Now that he’s opened up about his own battle with depression, Brady is grateful for the outpouring of support he’s received.


*I too battle depression every day. Creating 365DOLF helps a lot. Find what helps you and be passionate about it.

I wish I could reach out to let Wayne Brady know that my dad never missed his show – Let’s Make a Deal, while on his deathbed.


Andy Cohen 1968

Andy Cohen is a man that defies labeling. He is the multi-hyphenate extraordinaire. He is a producer, a talk show host, a writer, and a high-level television producer. He basically is the Bravo television network.

All in all, Andy’s net worth is about $10 million.


*Defy labels. Be a multi-hyphenated extraordinaire.


Jerry Mathers 1948 – watch Leave it to Beaver

June: “Ward, I’m very worried about the Beaver.”

Focus attention on urgent issues. Beating around the bush won’t do. June you must face up to the issue and address it immediately.


*Don’t beat around the bush or worry about being too hard on the Beaver. Just watch a few episodes of Leave it to Beaver instead.


Justin Long 1978 – spicy lobster linguine

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.
