STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES DAY

MIND

Minor White 1908

His students were on a serious journey of awareness, using photography as a tool for deepening their own personal understanding. His pictures took them to places they had never been before, and opened their eyes to new ways of thinking about image making and themselves.

*Get outside and take pictures today and let those pictures be a journey of awareness. Share them with friends and loved ones and actually print the pictures out.

BODY

OJ Simpson 1947

*Watch and perform O.J. Simpson’s workout video. It’s a killer.

SOUL

‘You asked if I had shame: back then, yes. Now, no. I’m not going to live my life in shame. I think that’s a toxic emotion.

*Don’t have shame today. Whatever you have done, is in the past. Only a fool would trip over something that he’s already passed. Watch the end of The Wolf of Wall Street for motivation.

MONEY

Money = Freedom.

“You’ll lose if you pursue money for any reason other than freedom. Nothing else can drive a person like the desire for freedom. The entrepreneurs that are pursuing freedom will find success.”

To me, freedom is the ability to do what you want, when you want, how you want.

*Pursue freedom

ENTERTAINMENT

Tom Hanks 1956 – watch Forrest Gump

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.
