“The more you drive, the fitter you get,”

“When I’m at home in the off season, I probably ride about eight hours a week on the bike. I will do Pilates twice a week. I will do the gym a couple times. I will do a little swimming. You do a little bit of everything.”

*Your choice today – bicycle, Pilates, gym, swimming, or a combination.

SOUL

Van Jones 1968

“All humans have fear, and those of us who are fortunate have faith.”

*What is your biggest fear? Have faith that everything is going to be ok.

“Ideas are cheap. I have more ideas now than I could ever write up. To my mind, it’s the execution that is all-important.”

*Your million dollar business idea is worthless if you are not executing it.

“The Jungle” exposes the appalling and unsanitary conditions in the Chicago meat-packing industry. It was influential in obtaining passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act.

“I aimed at the public’s heart, and by accident hit it in the stomach.”

*I would suggest to read The Jungle while eating this sandwich, but you’ll need both hands and a bib for this Chicago Italian beef sandwich. Wait until after you eat before reading Upton Sinclair’s masterpiece of muckraking.

SNUB – Khabib Nurmagomedov 1988

Review –

  • Look at the world with attention and love
  • Bicycle, Pilates, gym, or swimming
  • Faith > Fear
  • Execute your million dollar idea
  • Watch Two Women
  • Make a Chicago Italian beef sandwich

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.
