MAKE MONEY DAY

MIND

Steve Jobs 1955

Every morning Steve Jobs would ask himself this question:

“If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today?”  – Steve Jobs   

If too many days went by with the answer being “no,” he made changes in his life.

He did this until he hit a consistent yes, which drove him to countless innovations and a company worth $702 billion.

*Ask yourself this same question this morning and answer honestly.

BODY

Floyd Mayweather 1977

Shadow boxing: Spars between 7 and 12 rounds (depending on how he feels)

Works the heavy bag for 20 or 30 minutes

200 sit-ups, pull-ups, dips, jump rope

5-8 mile run

*Boxing is one of the best workouts you can do. This won’t be the last time it is suggested. Most boxing gyms will give you a free trial membership and supply you with wraps and gloves. If you can’t get to a gym, you can still do most of “Money” Mayweather’s workout.

SOUL

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is using technology to help solve some of our toughest challenges — from preventing and eradicating disease, to improving learning experiences for kids, to reforming the criminal justice system. Founded by Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg in 2015, CZI’s mission is to build a more inclusive, just, and healthy future for everyone.

*Help build a better future for everyone. Look into joining the CZI team. This may help you answer “yes” to the daily Steve Jobs question.

MONEY

“Ultimately, we wanted Nike to be the world’s best sports and fitness company. Once you say that, you have a focus. You don’t end up making wing tips or sponsoring the next Rolling Stones world tour.”

*Clearly define your mission and focus, stating your end goal. Don’t get distracted by anything else.

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.
