“You gotta be around young people. That’s the first thing. The new is what’s really happening. And if you don’t immerse yourself in that, you quickly go into the night. It’s very important to stay grounded but don’t accept their ways of being. Let your ways be the light to theirs. They love that. They want some gray hair in the cockpit.”

*Be aware of what young people know. Know about Snapchat and Tik Tok. But like George Hamilton says, let your ways be the light to theirs. Show them that there is more to life than selfies.


Mario Balotelli 1990

Mario to shift his big frame with speed and strength, he needs to be nimble and powerful driving off one foot. Skipping can develop these areas and boost stamina. He skips for 20 seconds, sprints for 10, skips for 20, and sprints for 10 and so on – for 10 minutes.

*Skip for 20 seconds, sprint for 10, and keep alternating for 10 minutes. Play soccer.


Cara Delevingne 1992

“The energy you give off is the energy you receive. I really think that, so I’m always myself–jumping, dancing, singing around, trying to cheer everybody up.”

*Give off good energy today. Jump, dance, sing, and try to cheer people up.


Tyson Fury 1988

Tyson Fury says he doesn’t give a DAMN about money — telling TMZ Sports he’s not boxing for the paycheck because he’s never met one single happy millionaire.

*Hopefully 365DOLF has drilled home the idea of doing what you love and the money will come. Build your dream business and give a DAMN about money and be a happy millionaire. Think about this during a boxing workout.

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.
