MIRACLE ON THE MOON DAY

MIND

Neil Armstrong 1930

Be humble. He didn’t use his achievements and successes as an opportunity to brag but to push others forward. Enjoy your successes and celebrate your little steps forward but do so humbly.

*Use your achievements from this year as an opportunity to push others forward. Share your successes from 365DOLF with others. Get them on the bandwagon with you. Watch First Man for inspiration.

BODY

“If I’m running for longer and slower, then I get less rest time. But if my run time is faster and shorter, I get a longer time to recover so that I can run at a higher velocity next round. Rest is really important.”

*Rest is important. But only if you’ve earned it. Get on that treadmill and run longer but slower or run shorter but faster today.

SOUL

Adam Yauch 1964

In 1992, Yauch became a practicing Buddhist, and in many ways the spiritual center of the Beastie Boys.

*Look into Buddhism. I think it’s the closest thing to what 365DOLF is all about. Improving your mind, body, and soul. 

MONEY

Patrick Ewing 1962

“NBA players make a lot of money. But they spend a lot of money, too.”

*It doesn’t matter how much money you make, it’s how much money you spend.

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.
