As a teenager, Houdini was a member of several athletic organizations, competing in bicycle races, foot races, and boxing matches. He would plunge into the fast-moving East River to get his swimming fix, and run a ten-mile circuit in Central Park.

*Pick one of Harry Houdini’s early obsessions as a workout today. Swimming, boxing, bicycling, running, or any combination. 

SOUL

“Life starts happening and personal things become more important, and I had to pour myself into my family and those things,”

“And hey, man, 13 or 14 years in the league, that’s over the average. We beat the odds twice. Championships, gold medals, I got to experience the best of the best, and now it’s just taking that and bottling that up and going to the real world and doing the best of the best somewhere else.”

*Pour yourself into your family today to experience the best of the best.

MONEY

“I was bankrupt when I was under 25 years old. I was in my mid-20s with my first business,” Hilfiger says.

“That was the best learning experience I ever had,”

“It was my MBA.”

*Don’t work on going bankrupt today, but don’t be scared to follow your dreams either.

ENTERTAINMENT

*Watch Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty and decide for yourself if it deserves an award or to be boycotted.

No matter when the game started, Manning would eat the same pregame meal, which includes grilled chicken, a plain baked potato with a side of broccoli, a bowl of pasta with marinara sauce, and a couple of Gatorades.

*You could go healthy and eat his normal pre-game meal or be glutinous and eat his true loves – Papa John’s pizza, Budweiser, and a chicken parmigiana sandwich. “Chicken parm you taste so good.”

SNUB – Steve Ballmer 1956

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.
