“So, wellness is mind first: meditating. Then body: exercising and being aware of what you’re eating. And a dog is good to have around.”

*Meditate. Exercise. Eat well. Play with your dog. Don’t have a dog?…you know what to do.

BODY

Luka Doncic 1999

*Rookie of the Year, Luka Doncic promised Mavs owner Mark Cuban that he would have 6-pack abs for his second year in the league. Make that same promise to someone today. Promise them that by the end of this year, you too will have 6-pack abs. 

SOUL

Dean Smith 1931

“Good people are happy when something good happens to someone else.”

*Focus on the process of acting with honor and integrity today. Be genuinely happy for someone else’s success. Think of donating to the Dean E. Smith Opening Doors Fund.

MONEY

Mario Andretti 1940

His designation as a Living Legend by the Library of Congress, are also a testament to his post-racing life as an eclectic entrepreneur and investor—one who earns much more today than he ever did behind the wheel.

*The career you are in right now is not your last act. It’s never too early to start thinking about the next act of your life. Hopefully you can parlay the skills of your current job into a successful business.

ENTERTAINMENT

And there they saw a rock

It was a rock lobster

Rock lobster
Rock lobster”

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.
