MIND

Francis Scott Key 1779

When inspiration strikes, take action. 

Key started to write key lines during the bombardment. Imagine if he waited to write the poem until later when he was safely at home. We likely would never have heard of it.

*Take action today. You’ve been waiting long enough. If you’re half asleep with a great idea and think, I’ll do that tomorrow, think again.

BODY

Jason Momoa 1979

“EAT AS MUCH LEAN MEAT AND GREEN VEGGIES AS I CAN, AND SAVE THE CALORIES FOR GUINNESS.”

*Do this Aquaman workout, go swimming, and then eat lean meat and green veggies. Save the Guinness for a nightcap.

SOUL

Herman Melville 1819

Melville’s Moby-Dick as a story of the soul’s pilgrimage towards redemption.

*Read Moby Dick and read The Holy Longing by Ron Rolheiser to help your soul’s pilgrimage towards redemption.

MONEY

“They have expressed to my family and I that they value everything I bring to the game, and have proven that by offering me a 2 year guaranteed deal with a chance to play a 3rd year and beyond,”

“My family and I are very, very excited about this new chapter in our lives.”

*Don’t be afraid to start a new chapter in your life, if there’s a company that values everything you bring.

ENTERTAINMENT

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.
