STRAIGHT CASH HOMEY DAY

MIND

Mike Krzyzewski 1947

“Never underestimate the immense power of your imagination.”

*If you don’t think your goals are a little crazy, you aren’t thinking big enough. Without allowing your mind to imagine something great is possible, the chances of it happening are slim to none. Instead of going to work every day to check off a task list, start thinking about what more is possible in your current role. What else could you do or come up with that could change the course of your career or company?

BODY

Henry Rollins 1961

“I believe that the definition of definition is reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself.”

*Be better than your parents. Be better than your friends. Be yourself today and crush Rollins’s balanced workout

SOUL

“We all like to think we’ve done things right in life, and then it’s appalling to find we’ve maybe really screwed something up – and that to me is very moving and very human.”

*What’s something that you’ve done right in life? What’s something that you’ve really screwed up? Reflect on both of these things today.

MONEY

Randy Moss 1977 – “Straight cash homey”

“Straight cash, homey.”

*Only use cash today. If need be, go to the ATM and get out X amount of money for the day and only use it. I know that I am too loose with my debit card, but more disciplined with cash.

ENTERTAINMENT

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.
