BE BOLD BE BRAVE BE YOU DAY

MIND

Susan Wojcicki 1968

See the source image

Wojcicki by 2006 was running Google Video — which was getting trounced by YouTube

Wojcicki’s solution to that problem shows her calm under fire. With just a day’s notice, she developed and presented to Google’s board the financial model justifying the $1.65 billion purchase.

*Show calm under fire today and be looking for a way to turn a negative into a positive.

BODY

Take Players On

Shield the Ball

Whip Those Crosses In

Get Your Head Up & Take Shots

*Her website will encourage you to BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE YOU – do that while playing a game of soccer today.

SOUL

PT Barnum 1810

The first essential of prayer is that it be in faith. Barnum’s Universalist Church is the only one that believes in success.

*Look into the Universalist Church – it may be for you. Also watch The Greatest Showman for both Soul and Money motivation.

MONEY

Chris Cline 1958

Cline spent time down in the mines before moving to the management. Unlike some billionaire inheritors, he has experience down in the pits and knows the base functionality of his business. He’s lived it.

*You have both life and job experience. Why can’t you move to the management side of the business and run it the way you wish it was operating now.

ENTERTAINMENT

Huey Lewis 1950 – Listen to Huey Lewis and the News

*Listen to some classic, feel-good, 80s rock and roll – Huey Lewis and the News. Because it’s hip to be square.

FOOD

Breakfast of champions: Edie Falco’s cinnamon toast

*After a long night of the 4th, wake up to some cinnamon toast to start the 5th. Compliments of Mrs. Soprano, or Nurse Jackie.

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.
