ON THE ROAD AGAIN DAY

MIND

Jerry Seinfeld 1954

“I read an article a few years ago that said when you practice a sport a lot, you literally become a broadband: the nerve pathway in your brain contains a lot more information. As soon as you stop practicing, the pathway begins shrinking back down. Reading that changed my life.”

*This is why Seinfeld continued to work on his craft as a comedian. This is why you should continue to work on what is most important to you.

BODY

Michelle Pfeiffer 1958

Pfeiffer, who runs 4 to 6 miles a day on the treadmill, switched to a vegan diet several years ago to improve her health and boost longevity.

*Run 4 to 6 miles on the treadmill and eat vegan today. Watch Scarface for motivation.

SOUL

Be Yourself

If there is one thing that Willie Nelson has always done better than anyone else, it’s being Willie Nelson.

*Be yourself. It’s good for your soul. So is listening to Willie Nelson. And smoking.

MONEY

The former NASCAR driver’s widow, Teresa Earnhardt, wants to keep the name from being used by Earnhardt’s son and her stepson, Kerry Earnhardt, and his wife in their home designs and furniture business.

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.
