WRITE IT DOWN

Often seen with a leather notebook, F. Scott was constantly taking notes of his thoughts knowing how vital one could become to his work.

*Hopefully you have the 365DOLF journal, but if not, get a nice leather notebook to write down your thoughts and impressions. Start reading The Great Gatsby today.

FOLLOW THE SUNDAY/THURSDAY COOKING RULE

“It’s a lot easier to make healthy food choices when you actually have healthy food in the house. I make a big batch of food on Sunday and Thursday, and eat it in variations throughout the week.”

*Meal prep for the rest of the week and/or for next week. It could lead to a big lean Greek wedding.

SOUL

What were some of the core values you looked to instill in your kids as they grew up?

“Trustworthiness. Respect. There are a lot of other things that you could name, but I think that if you don’t get burdened down with a whole lot of have-tos and want-tos just be trustworthy and respectful I think that will cover a lot of things.”

*What are your core values? Trustworthiness and respect are a good place to start. Go Steelers!

MONEY

THE FIVE PRINCIPLES

The Five Principles are the key to our culture, and we strive to live by them each and every day. They serve as a compass to help guide our business decisions and unite us across geographies, languages, cultures and generations. The result is stronger relationships with everyone — our consumers, customers, business partners, communities and each other.

  1. Quality
  2. Responsibility
  3. Mutuality
  4. Efficiency
  5. Freedom

*Write the principles that will guide your business decisions. Don’t be afraid to steal these 5 from Mars.

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.
