His life and work were full of daring, astuteness and a preternaturally acute ear for language. Anything else is bullshit.

*Read the poetry of TS Eliot today. He will change the way you think.

“For me it’s so important to mix it up. I ran, and then I biked. Then I did elliptical. That didn’t work out so well, because it was boring, so I tried yoga. I started dancing because I couldn’t train when I was sick. We started making up moves, and it was fun. Now I run for 10 minutes, and then I dance.”

*Run for 10 minutes and then dance. Play tennis with your sister.


Olivia Newton-John 1948

After her struggle with cancer, Newton-John has become respected and admired just as much for her courage as for her music.

Hold Your Own Event:

You may choose to add a fundraiser to an existing event, create a new fundraising event at your work, club or with family and friends, or be sponsored by your friends, family and co-workers to complete an individual challenge.

Thank you for choosing the ONJ Centre to be the beneficiary of your fundraising activity. With the incredible support of individuals, organizations and community groups, the ONJ Centre is able to make a real difference to the lives of people touched by cancer.

*Olivia Newton John is currently battling cancer for the third time. Think of holding a fundraiser with all proceeds going to her cancer centre. Maybe a drive-in showing of Grease

Pavlov kept his physiology lab running by selling something that he had easy access to: canine gastric juice. He sold thousands of containers of the juice each year to people around Europe, who drank it daily to treat dyspepsia (indigestion).

*Think of ways that you can raise money to keep your entrepreneurial ideas alive. Sure you can get investors and small business loans, but that is money that comes off the top. Start raising and saving money for your business today.

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.
