“I try to extract something positive from every situation, even if it’s just learning not to make the same mistake twice.”

Day 3: Pool day

Lively did interval work in the water—and mixed it up by treading water or doing long-distance swimming for about 30 minutes a day.

*This comes from a great website, wellandgood.com and is the Day 3 of Blake Lively’s workout week that stresses intensity. Tread water and do long-distance swimming today. Watch her in The Shallows for motivation to swim faster – think Castaway meets Jaws meets Baywatch.

SOUL

Tim Burton 1958

“Most people say about graveyards: “Oh, it’s just a bunch of dead people. It’s creepy.” But for me, there’s an energy to it that it not creepy, or dark. It has a positive sense to it.”

*Visit someone special’s gravesite today. It has probably been a while.

MONEY

Gene Simmons 1949

“Life is business, and I approach life the way sharks approach life – they must keep moving or else they will drown.

“I’ll never stop hunting more money, I’ll never have enough.”

*Keep moving today and never stop hunting more money. Listen to KISS for motivation.

“You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. *That’s* the *Chicago* way!

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.
