CAPTAIN KIRK DAY

MIND

James Patterson 1947

“I remember, I won an Edgar Award when I was 26 for Best First Mystery, and even though I knew I won, on the night of, I was worried. I felt like there might have been a mistake. That’s the kind of lack of confidence you can have early on. You’re writing this thing and you hope people like it. You’re rewriting and rewriting and get lost in the sauce. Confidence is a big thing.”

*It’s easy to get discouraged. But remember that confidence will take you a long ways. Be confident – even if you’re not yet.

BODY

Watt doesn’t just hit the weights. He grinds through a range of functional workouts, including box jumps, sprinting drills, squats, and tire flipping.

*Get with your trainer and have them put you through JJ’s workout

SOUL

“I’m actually quite a spiritual Christian. I’m fascinated by spiritual thought across the board. I was raised a Christian, and I studied a little Buddhism and maybe a dash of Hinduism, but i’m fascinated by Hebraic culture, and how our culture has been informed by Hebraic culture.”

*Be fascinated by spiritual thought. Continue to research different religions and borrow what you like.

MONEY

Rick Harrison 1965

“In business you have to be innovative, but so are crooks.  A couple of times I got lazy and didn’t pay attention to new and improved fakes, so a few times I lost some big money on Rolex’s.”

*Take something to a pawn shop today. Make some money and also work on your haggling and sales skills in the process. Watch an episode of Pawn Stars for inspiration.

ENTERTAINMENT

What would you have for your final meal on Earth, if you knew the end was coming?

“Sushi. But that old idea about red with meat and white with fish—who decided that? I’d want a glass of each. In fact, you might as well drink five bottles if you know the end is coming.”

*Eat sushi and drink wine like it’s your last meal on Earth.

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.
