Look for the * for today’s advice.
ONLY USE ONE HAND DAY
Jay S Walker 1955
A striking embodiment of Mr. Walker’s focus on innovation is his vast personal library. Within a multi-level, maze-like setting, the Walker Library of the History of Human Imagination contains thousands of landmark books and museum-level artifacts. The Walker Library has hosted numerous world leaders from business, government, science, medicine, the arts and education as part of Mr. Walker’s commitment to foster thoughtful discussions on the challenges facing the U.S. and the world community.
*What is your personal library looking like. I knew mine had to change when all I had were books about basketball. Hopefully since you started 365DOLF, your library has evolved with you. This is one thing you can pass down to your children as well.

Odell Beckham Jr. 1992
“One time, he landed in Los Angeles at midnight and he called me up to do a workout. We ended up doing an intense session from 2 a.m to 4 a.m. That’s the kind of guy Odell is and how dedicated he is.”
*I doubt that your trainer will put you through an intense workout from 2-4 am, so it’s up to you. Think how good you’ll feel the rest of the day, knowing that your workout is over. Play some touch football in the afternoon. You play WR and yell at the QB any time he doesn’t throw it to you.
Ida Tarbell 1857
Ida Minerva Tarbell once called herself “a bachelor soul” and in many ways her soul along with her intellect and career followed the masculine instead of the feminine expectations of late Nineteenth, early Twentieth century society. She said more than once that she preferred men to women and that women were too emotional to vote or function in the masculine world. Another remark that she made about women seems to express her contempt toward them. She said that the only reason she was glad that she was a woman was because “she wouldn’t have to marry one.”
When Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution cast doubt on the Biblical story of creation, Tarbell studied botanical specimens under her microscope to see if she could prove the existence of God.
Men’s souls have been torn between strength and sensitivity. Today, the situation is even worse. The politically correct crowd cries out for men to be more sensitive, to tame their masculine nature. On the opposing side, the media bombards men with “macho” images of violence and lust. Is it any wonder men are left bewildered about who they should be?
Women are destroying themselves. Internalizing society’s devaluation of the feminine, some women are killing their own natural impulses to pursue a feminist ideal that bears no relation to God’s good design. Other women struggle to conform to a fundamentalist, feminine caricature, which requires denying their full humanity and gifting.
*Do you have a bachelor soul? Does your soul follow the masculine or feminine expectations of today?
Think of ways that you can break stereotypes and norms of your gender. Not just to do it, but to be a more complete person – body, mind, and soul.
Kris Jenner 1955
I was an airline stewardess, and I worked in my mother’s clothing store and my grandmother’s candle shop. My parents always had businesses, and my grandmother and mother were very independent, which taught me a lot.
*Say what you want about the Kardashians/Jenners – they hustle. They probably learned this hustle from the momma bear, Kris. It helps if you grow up around business owners, (to get a job), but more importantly to learn how to be entrepreneurial. If you didn’t grow up around it, make sure that your children do.
Vivien Leigh 1913 – watch Gone With the Wind
Gone With The Wind (1939) is often considered the most beloved, enduring and popular film of all time.
A nationwide casting search for an actress to play the Southern belle Scarlett resulted in the hiring of young British actress Vivien Leigh, although over 30 other well-known actresses had been tested or considered including: Katharine Hepburn, Miriam Hopkins, Susan Hayward, Loretta Young, Carole Lombard, Paulette Goddard, Margaret Sullavan, Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, Lana Turner, Joan Bennett, Mae West, Tallulah Bankhead, Jean Arthur, and Lucille Ball. In all, 1,400 actresses were interviewed for the part of Scarlett O’Hara, and 400 performed audition-readings
*Remember it is a long movie (almost 4 hours), so set some time aside and watch this classic. When it’s over, you won’t give a damn about how long it was.
OJ Mayo 1987 – orange mayonnaise salad dressing
O.J. Mayo broke down in tears when he heard the NBA was going to ban him for at least two years for a failed drug test, and he surely would have cried even harder if he had known the embarrassment, loneliness and aimlessness that would follow.
THE KARDASHIAN SALAD RECIPE
THE HEALTH NUT SALAD
*Make the Kardashian salad but use the OJ Mayo dressing instead of the Italian. I think they would all be OK with an NBA player’s mayo on their salad.
*And make yourself this Gone With the Wind dessert to enjoy while watching the movie.
