“You have to adapt and adjust—you can’t take your sweet time all the time, but cherish your process.”

*Adapt and adjust throughout today. Cherish your process.

Terry Fox Runs take place in over 9,000 communities across Canada every year and are accessible to anyone with no entry fee, no minimum pledge and a non-competitive atmosphere. Participants can run, walk, blade or bike and most of all have fun while raising funds for cancer research.


*Sign up for a Terry Fox Run today. Run 3.1 miles to prepare for it.

“One must not let oneself be overwhelmed by sadness.”

If we can’t be in charge of our situations, we can at least be in charge of ourselves. We can try to focus on what we can control going forward. Jackie said seeing the world through her children’s eyes helped restore her faith in her family.

*Watch Jackie to learn how to deal with loss like Jackie Kennedy.


Dana White 1969

“Rob Dyrdek called me after the sale, and he said, ‘I’ve got to ask you a question – how do you get up every day and run the race when you’ve already won the race?”

“I want to know how you strap your f—-ng shoes on and go to work every day.’ I said, ‘Because I was never in it for the money.’ I don’t even think about the money.”

*When your business of passion makes you rich, will you still want to run it every day? Sure you want to make money, but that money will be much sweeter if it comes from your passion.


Lori Loughlin 1964 – watch Full House (she bribed her way onto this)

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.
