GET SAVED BY A LIFEGUARD DAY

MIND

Princess Diana 1961

Every Tuesday night, Diana would sit at her desk in her study at Kensington Palace, writing a steady stream of heartfelt thank-you letters and listening to Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 and—her favorite—Manning Sherwin’s “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square.”

*Write heartfelt thank-you letters to anyone you can think of that needs to be thanked by you. Listen to Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.2 and Sherwin’s “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square” while writing these letters.

BODY

Carl Lewis 1961

He had not done any serious weight lifting before, so he started easy. No weights, just the bar. And not a standard 45-pound bar, but a 25-pound bar. If he was “weak and depleted,” as he put it, Lewis was also dedicated to getting stronger. He has lifted faithfully three times a week from August until now at the University of Houston, his alma mater. His bench press has increased from 95 pounds to 275, his squats from 45 pounds to 245, his leg curls from 84 pounds with each leg to 198.

*Bench press, squats, and leg curls today. Run Carl Lewis 100 yard dashes afterwards.

SOUL

Liv Tyler 1977

On overcoming self-doubt…
“I think I felt quite brave at the beginning of my career and then I went through this period in the middle where I just wanted to hide away a little bit and I felt less sure about things. Suddenly, in the last couple of years, I’ve just felt much more excited about following my heart, not being afraid to take risks and make mistakes and try and enjoy as much as I can. I think that sometimes I worry so much about making everything perfect but it’s not really about doing that – it’s just about doing it and seeing what happens.”

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.
