ROBERT, BOB, ROBERTO DAY
Robert Redford 1936
“I was never a good student,”
“I had to be dragged into kindergarten. It was hard to sit and listen to somebody talk. I wanted to be out, educated by experience and adventure, and I didn’t know how to express that.”
*Educate yourself by experience and adventure today. Think of watching Ordinary People – the Oscar winning movie, directed by Redford – especially if you’re dealing with loss.
Bob Harper 1965
Harper probably survived sudden cardiac arrest because of his excellent physical fitness and the immediate medical attention.
However, the fact that he was in such terrific shape also made having a heart attack at 51 that much more stunning.
“TM, yoga, and my dogs really help me with managing my stress,”
“I tell people you have to find whatever it is in your life that you can do to turn off the white noise, just for a few minutes. If it means sitting with your phone off for five or ten minutes and not having to focus on anyone or anything— those things are so good for you. It helps your brain, it helps your body.”
*If you haven’t yet, get a heart checkup today. Would you survive cardiac arrest? Help your brain and body by shutting off the white noise for a few minutes today. Try TM, yoga, and spending time with your dogs – and shut off that phone for 5 minutes today.
Roberto Clemente 1934
On Dec. 31, Clemente boarded a plane filled with relief supplies, but the overloaded plane would never reach its final destination. It plunged into the ocean off the coast of Puerto Rico.
Clemente’s family and friends weren’t shocked by his actions. It’s a side they already knew existed.
The Roberto Clemente Foundation values your partnership in continuing our mission of Building Nations of Good.
*Lead by your actions. Think of donating to the Roberto Clemente Foundation.
Steve Chen 1978
“I realized if I didn’t venture out on my own now, I wouldn’t have this opportunity later on in life,”
He developed a two-year plan: if his new company didn’t take off in two years, or he ran out of money first, he would try to go back to Paypal and get a job.
*You are well over half way through this year. Consider it a great start to your 2 –year plan to create your own business. You may not have this opportunity later in life.
Patrick Swayze 1952 – watch Ghost
*Watch Ghost and maybe make a clay pot with that special someone.
Edward Norton 1969 – Fight Club Cream of Mushroom Soup
*Invite some friends over to watch Fight Club and serve them this delicious soup. Tell them that you won’t be having any. They all may want to fight you after.
