Look for the * for today’s advice.
WEAR KHAKIS DAY
Jim Harbaugh 1963
Go above and beyond, and don’t show off about it.
“Do one more thing. Do your job well and find one more thing to do. Don’t advertise it. Just do it. Everybody you compete with from here on out is going to be doing what they’re asked. They’re going to be doing what’s expected of them. If they don’t, they’ll get weeded out as the competition goes along.”
*Do one more thing today. Do what is expected of you plus one more thing. Go beyond what is expected of you and you will stand out. Make this your strategy going forward in all walks of life.
Holly Madison 1979
To torch calories and increase her agility as a dancer, Holly did Pilates and yoga. She also adopted a low-carb diet, replacing bagels with protein bars and fruit, and fast food with grilled chicken and avocado.
*Pilates or yoga one last time this year. Have a protein bar and fruit for breakfast and grilled chicken and avocado for lunch.
Joseph Smith 1805
Understand the principle of repentance
Just as the Lord showed love and forgiveness to the Prophet, there is hope for all to repent and start again. “The Atonement of Jesus Christ is what makes it possible for us to both overcome serious mistakes and to be a better person today in our habits, relationships, and thoughts than we were yesterday. It is a joyous blessing and gift that gives us hope.”
*Repent, ask for forgiveness and start again today. Throughout this year, you have become a better person. Your habits, relationships, and thoughts have gotten better every day of this year.
Madam C.J. Walker 1867
Of course, many would-be entrepreneurs start off with a dream. The reason we’re still talking about Walker’s is her prescience, and her success in the span of just a dozen years. In pumping her “Wonderful Hair Grower” door-to-door, at churches and club gatherings, then through a mail-order catalog, Walker proved to be a marketing magician, and she sold her customers more than mere hair products. She offered them a lifestyle, a concept of total hygiene and beauty that in her mind would bolster them with pride for advancement.
*You started off with a dream. Now market that dream. Sell it everywhere and anyway that you can. Be a marketing magician because you believe in what your dream is. Don’t just sell your dream to people, sell them a lifestyle. This is my dream for 365DOLF – that it will become a lifestyle for the masses.
Eddie Vedder 1964 – listen to Pearl Jam
There’s no better man than Eddie Vedder to inspire a rocker movie character.
Bradley Cooper revealed at the Los Angeles premiere of A Star Is Born on Monday that the mannerisms and nuance he brought to his role as Jackson Maine was inspired by Pearl Jam’s lead singer.
*Be a better man and listen to Pearl Jam all day.
Kirby Smart 1975 – Chick-fil-A spicy chicken sandwich, large ice water, and a small fry
Even Kirby Smart wishes Chick-fil-A was open on Sundays.
Founded in College Park, Georgia in 1946, the family-oriented restaurant is a staple in the Smart house and he knows exactly what’s on the menu when he takes a stroll inside Georgia’s Tate Student Center near Sanford Stadium.
“My go-to (order) is nice and simple — spicy chicken sandwich, large ice water and a small fry,” Smart told 680 The Fan on Friday. “I don’t want the combo. I want the small fry with the large ice water and a spicy chicken sandwich.”
*This day begins and ends with college football coaches. Unless it’s Sunday, go to your nearest Chick-fil-A and order what Coach Smart does for dinner. If it is Sunday, use it as motivation to start your own business called Chick-SunDAY – a food truck that serves chicken sandwiches ONLY on Sunday.
