SNOOP D-O-DOUBLE G DAY
Tom Petty 1950
Tom Petty, with his workman-like approach to things, just cut out the unnecessary stuff and focused on the most important thing: the music.
*Whatever your passion is, take a workman-like approach to it. Cut out the unnecessary stuff and focus on the most import thing. Listen to Tom Petty for inspiration.
Mickey Mantle 1931
His training consisted of sledge hammering rocks in the coal mines of Oklahoma and farm work, which created an unmatched strength to ball players in his time.
Mickey Mantle, his face drawn and his body weakened from the affects of a liver transplant that saved his life, said he wanted to tell children, ‘don’t be like me.’ ‘All you have to do is look at me and see where (my life) was wasted,’
*If possible, find a local farmer and ask if they would like some free labor. They will say yes and might even feed you – well. Another option would be to go to the batting cages and swing away like Mickey Mantle. Don’t waste your life.
John Krasinski 1979
“I actually grew up Catholic, so I know all about [marriage preparation classes] — they try to get you to understand that marriage isn’t just this little thing you can offer someone as a gift. It’s a really important thing to learn how sometimes it’s not that easy to spend all that time with someone. They basically just make you aware of all the sacrifices you have to make before you do it.”
*Your reminder that marriage is not easy and you do need to work on it all the time. Watch Krasinski make the ultimate sacrifice in A Quiet Place.
Snoop Dogg 1971
Good marketing is being generous
Snoop Dogg is living proof that the best marketing tactic is not to ask, but to give.
He checks his ego at the door and uses opportunity to grow his network of fans.
*Be generous with your time. Remember that you are using opportunities to grow your network and remain relevant by helping other people. Listen to Snoop for motivation.
Viggo Mortenson 1958 – watch Captain Fantastic
*Watch Viggo Mortenson almost win an Oscar in Captain Fantastic.
Candice Swanepoel 1988
“I like a healthy breakfast. I like croissants, pizza, pasta, eggs, steak. I love vegetable omelets.”
*If she says that these are healthy, who are we to argue. Eat each of these today.
