MIND

William Jennings Bryan 1860

William Jennings Bryan was hard-working, courageous, and noble in moral principles as well as friendly, charming, and optimistic. He spoke for the common man, and so he became known as “The Great Commoner”.

*Be like William Jennings Bryan. Virtuous. Spiritual. Hard-working. Courageous. Noble. Charming. Optimistic. Pick at least one of these to excel at today.

BODY

Clayton Kershaw 1988

“In the weight room, everybody has good days and bad days. Clayton Kershaw has a lot more better days than most.”

*Have a “good day” in the weight room today. Play catch with a friend later.

SOUL

Andy Reid 1958

“In our church, we try to get out and talk to members of the church and at the same time, anybody in the community that would like to listen about family, faith and football,”

“Those are three of our favorite subjects and we just try to share our experiences with people.”

*Share your experiences. It doesn’t have to be talking about family, faith, and football – but pick subjects that interest you (and them) to share your faith.

MONEY

Wyatt Earp 1848

He was drawn to police work not because of a devotion to the law but because, during the Gilded Age when public corruption was rampant, it was an easy source of cash.

*Were you drawn to your current job because it was an easy source of cash? I know I was. Not a lot of cash, but a steady paycheck. It has brought me very little happiness.

ENTERTAINMENT

Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Robert De Niro, Charles Bronson, Nick Nolte, Mel Gibson, Richard Gere, Don Johnson, Burt Reynolds, and Richard Dean Anderson were all considered for the role of John McClane. And all declined it.

*Make Die Hard your first choice in entertainment today. Yippee Ky yay.

FOOD

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.
