Look to the * for today’s advice.

STAR AS YOURSELF DAY

MIND

Herbert Hoover 1874

Hoover never finished high school, failed his college entrance exam and once admitted to college, wasn’t exactly the best of students. But he found a way to persevere once he found his niche: problem-solving, which led to an academic major, and then to a career as geologist and an engineer.

*Persevere and find your niche that will lead you to your true calling.

BODY

Being fit to me means staying active. We get to travel a lot, so we’re always on the move. It’s important to get out as much as possible, and just keep moving.

*Listen to Bobby Hatfield’s angelic voice today. It’s good for your soul, and keeps you righteous.

MONEY

Leo Fender 1909

He made millions of dollars, yet remained a humble inventor. His coffee “mug” was a styrofoam cup with “Leo” printed on it. He brought his lunch to work every day because “With the money I save eating these sandwiches, I can buy a handful of resistors.”

*If you don’t already, bring your lunch to work today. Make it a habit. And stop paying so much for that fancy coffee. It all adds up.

One year I lived in nine different places, and landlords kept throwing me out when they realized I didn’t have any money! I remember walking down the street and looking between the sidewalk and the cars, in the hope that somebody dropped some coins. I did that every single day for months at a time. That’s how desperate I was.

One day, Jimmy Dean was sitting in a local diner in his hometown of Plainview, Texas. He was having sausage and eggs. Jimmy always did love sausage, but on this particular morning, he bit into a piece of gristle about the size of Texas. He turned to his brother Don and said, “You know, there has got to be room in this country for a good quality sausage!”

The rest is history. Jimmy Dean, the multi-talented country singer, TV show host and actor, went on to build America’s favorite sausage company right during the height of his entertainment career.

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.
