Look for the * for today’s advice.



Albert J. Beveridge 1862

Breaking with the conservative wing of his party, he served as chairman and keynote speaker of the emotion-packed convention that organized the Progressive Party and nominated Roosevelt for president in 1912.


“Real conservatism is common sense applied to human conditions; spurious conservatism is a mad hostility to change.”


*As you encounter people today, use common sense applied to their human conditions. Just because they are different than you or want change, it doesn’t make them wrong or a lesser person.


Bruno Sammartino 1935

During the height of your wrestling career during the ’60s and ‘70s, what was your training like?
I was working out three, sometime three and a half, hours a day with weights. I would work out in the morning because I wanted to be very rested up for the wrestling matches at night. So I would do a workout, then have a light breakfast, and then I would go to bed for a few hours. I would eat an early dinner no later than 3:00 so that it would be fully digested by the time I went in the ring. So yeah, I worked out very hard and heavy, but I always used to try and take a couple hours nap afterward just to recoup and rest up.


*Work out for 3 hours this morning with weights. Have a light breakfast, then go to bed for 2 hours.


Tony Dungy 1955

“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” Dungy asked. “If football is your entire life, and you don’t have a relationship with the Lord, you’re going to be messed up, no matter how your life turns out. Even if you achieve fame and riches, if you forfeit your soul, it won’t profit you.”


The Dungy Family Foundation believes in strengthening, sustaining and empowering communities by providing opportunities to those in need.


*Don’t forfeit your soul for what you are aiming for in life. If you only follow the MONEY part of 365DOLF, you may become rich, but it won’t profit you. Think of donating to The Dungy Family Foundation.


George Westinghouse 1846

The scope of his financial empire was easy to overlook, as he named many of his companies not for himself but for his employees, the inventors and engineers who designed the assorted dynamos, meters, voltage regulators, and transformers that kept electricity humming. He offered employees a pension plan and relatively good wages, with sick leave and paid recuperation time after on-the-job accidents when neither was required by law. Andrew Carnegie once said that “Westinghouse could have made a lot more money during his lifetime if he hadn’t treated his workers so well”.


*When you run your business and have employees, be like George Westinghouse and treat your workers well. This goes hand and hand with the advice from Tony Dungy too.

Shue was known for her work on more lightweight films like The Karate Kid (1984) and Adventures in Babysitting (1987). Figgis said people told him “You’ve lost your marbles” when he cast Shue in such a serious movie. She later was nominated for an Oscar for playing Sera.


*Make yourself a drink and watch Leaving Las Vegas

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.
