Babe Ruth 1895

If Babe Ruth had time to practice bunting, you have time to practice those parts of your life that are fundamental to your success.

*To be successful, you must put in the work and give genuine effort – even on the small, seemingly unimportant details and nuances of life. Identify what those are for you, and then get to work.


Alice Eve 1982

In addition to yoga, she also likes to have acupuncture – a technique that is very effective in providing relief from pain, nausea, and removing stress and depression.

*Yoga and acupuncture to be like Alice Eve today.

Bob Marley 1945

“Overcome the devils with a thing called love.”

“On Nov 4, 1980 he was baptized and became a member of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. When he was buried under Orthodox rites on May 21, 1981, it was with his Bible and his Gibson guitar!”

*Whether he was Rastafarian or Christian when he died, while he was alive he preached love. One Love! Smoke weed and listen to Bob Marley as much as possible today.


Tom Brokaw 1940

“My father, Red Brokaw, was a blue-ribbon member of that fix-it generation. My mother learned not to say aloud what she needed, say a new ironing board, because my father would immediately build her one.”

One of the mottos of the Greatest Generation was “use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.”

*Read Brokaw’s book about The Greatest Generation to learn life lessons. Especially about saving money.

Reagan’s first big role as an actor was playing football star George Gipp in the 1940 film classic, Knute Rockne – All-American.

“Win one for the Gipper,” Reagan says in the film.

The role catapulted the young Ronald Reagan to fame, and the nickname “the Gipper” stuck with him forever after.

*Watch the movie that made the 40th POTUS “The Gipper”

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.
