“Don’t be a turd. If you are strong, be a protector. If you are smart, be a humble influencer. Strength and intelligence can be weapons, so do not wield them against the weak. That makes you a bully. Be bigger than that.”

*Use your intelligence as a weapon for good today.

BODY

Jane Russell 1921

Jane Russell had a lauded hourglass figure. She reportedly hated diets and never counted calories, only opting to cut alcoholic drinks if she ever needed to give up anything. To slim down, she practiced enjoyable routines such as hula hooping, archery, swimming, tennis, skiing, golf and dancing.

*No booze today and pick one of the following enjoyable routines – hula hooping, archery, swimming, tennis, skiing, golf, or dancing.

SOUL

Edward Snowden 1983

He acted peacefully, openly, with total dedication to principle. He took responsibility for speaking the truth. He did it with a clean conscience. He has been willing to face the consequences for his actions.

*Act peacefully, openly, and with total dedication to principle today. Speak the truth and have a clean conscience. Watch Snowden for inspiration.

MONEY

“Inspiration is much more effective than delegation.”

*Inspire others with your work ethic. Show them how it should be done, instead of just telling them to get it done. Sell stuff on Ebay.

Former royal chef Darren McGrady found a note that said “Please give the boys pizza tonight instead of chicken,” signed with the nanny’s name. But there was something fishy—it was in a six-year-old’s handwriting. “I knew the boys wrote that, so I said ‘No, I’ll give them chicken,’”

*If you’re feeling like a naughty little royal, eat pizza. Eat chicken like a good boy.

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.
