MIND

Gerald Ford 1913

“Personal excellence can be achieved by a visionary goal, through planning, dedicated execution, and total follow-through.”

*Strive for personal excellence. Plan, execute, and follow through with your visionary goal.

BODY

Conor McGregor 1988

“I’m always eating good food,”

“Depending how far out I am from a fight, I might cut out a few things. You wouldn’t catch me eating too much in terms of take-out. I love water and coconut water, but I never drink energy drinks—ever! I just eat good, quality meat and keep hydrated.”

*Eat quality meat and drink lots of water and coconut water today. Get a workout in at your local MMA gym.

SOUL

Woody Guthrie 1912

Woody sang for those who carried a heavy burden or had come upon hard times. His words gave a voice to their struggle, and his songs gave them hope and strength.

*Speak up for those who carry a burden. Give them hope and strength. Listen to some Woody Guthrie for motivation.

MONEY

Darrelle Revis 1985

Revis bets on himself and rarely gives in, making it well known to his employer that if he is unhappy he will not play.

*Bet on yourself today. Don’t give in. If you are not happy at work, quit and start your dream business today.

ENTERTAINMENT

Dan Smith 1986 – listen to Bastille

“I like to think my parents are relieved that I ended up in a band and not as a serial killer.”

*Listen to Bastille on Bastille Day. I’m guessing this is why Dan Smith named the group Bastille.

FOOD

Tom Carvel 1906 – ice cream cake

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.
