“There has to be a shift in the way of thinking. Rational must outweigh irrational. Justice must outweigh injustice. Love must outweigh hate. If you put yourself in someone else’s shoes and you don’t like how it feels — that’s when you know things need to change.”

*What shift needs to be made in your way of thinking?”


Bruno Sammartino 1935

“I was working out three, sometime three and a half, hours a day with weights. I would work out in the morning because I wanted to be very rested up for the wrestling matches at night. So I would do a workout, then have a light breakfast, and then I would go to bed for a few hours. I would eat an early dinner no later than 3:00 so that it would be fully digested by the time I went in the ring. So yeah, I worked out very hard and heavy, but I always used to try and take a couple hours nap afterward just to recoup and rest up.”

*Work out for 3 hours this morning with weights. Have a light breakfast, then go to bed for 2 hours.


Tony Dungy 1955

“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” 

“If football is your entire life, and you don’t have a relationship with the Lord, you’re going to be messed up, no matter how your life turns out. Even if you achieve fame and riches, if you forfeit your soul, it won’t profit you.”

*Don’t forfeit your soul for what you are aiming for in life. If you only follow the MONEY part of 365DOLF, you may become rich, but it won’t profit you. Think of donating to The Dungy Family Foundation.


George Westinghouse 1846

Andrew Carnegie once said that “Westinghouse could have made a lot more money during his lifetime if he hadn’t treated his workers so well”.

*When you run your business and have employees, be like George Westinghouse and treat your workers well. This goes hand and hand with the advice from Tony Dungy too.

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.
