HOW YOU DOING DAY
Henry Knox 1750

- Boston Massacre
- Boston Tea Party
- Lexington and Concord

Walter Payton 1954 – run in hot sand
He ran countless sprints through the course and back, because he believed that the sand made his legs stronger and allowed him to cut better at full speed. To make things even tougher, Payton purposely ran during the hottest hours of the day. The air was warm and thick, and the sand was so hot that he couldn’t stand still between sprints without blistering his feet.
*Find some hot sand to run in and remember this quote by Sweetness – “Tomorrow is promised to no one.”
Emmett Till 1941
Emmett Till’s death claimed the nation’s attention, thanks in part to his mother, who demanded an open casket, so the world could witness what white racists had done to her black son. The incident ignited the fledgling, modern civil rights movement into a raging fire.
*What are you passionate enough to ignite into a raging fire?
Louis Bacon 1956
Secretive, risk-conscious, a bit paranoid–Louis Bacon has many of the traits of a hedge fund boss. A nice chunk of the $7 billion he plays with is his own.

Matt LeBlanc 1967 – watch Friends
In 2009, during a lengthy timeout following the flameout of Friends spinoff Joey, the Modern Family pilot script “came across my desk with an offer to play Ty Burrell’s role,” LeBlanc told USA TODAY. (Producer 20th Century Fox Television confirms this). “I remember reading it thinking, this is a really good script, (but) I’m not the guy for this. I’d be doing the project an injustice to take this. I know what I can do, I know what I can’t do. Plus, I’m having too much fun laying on the couch.”
*Have fun laying on the couch and watch as many episodes of Friends as you can today. They’ll be there for you.
