Goldblum’s secret to aging well – love thyself.

Happy Jeff Goldblum Day, Pittsburgh.

A day that recognizes his fame while always maintaining his yinzer pride.

*Love yourself. One way to do that is to…

Maintain your boundaries.

When someone ignores what’s important to you, you’ll know—because it hurts. Don’t ignore that. Your feelings are there to tell you what’s right and what’s wrong.

BODY

Ichiro Suzuki 1973

Suzuki works out on specialized machines that improve his flexibility and improve blood circulation. It’s similar to yoga or Pilates, but not quite.

*Today is the day to ask your trainer to work you out on that funky looking machine in the corner of the gym that you would normally never try.

SOUL

Go After Your 80s? When Saul realized that his time was better spent helping elderly residents of a nursing home, he went after them with all of his energy.

He finally found his “80” customers: People that were going to give him profitable, consistent business.

Remember that the stronger relationships you make with your “80s” the more likely they will be to refer you to new customers.

*Figure out who your “80s” are and do everything that you can to make sure that you’re an inseparable part of their business. Watch Odenkirk in Better Call Saul for motivation.

ENTERTAINMENT

Franz Liszt 1811

Women screamed and swooned for the 19th Century piano virtuoso Franz Liszt.

*Listen to Franz Liszt today and try not to scream and swoon.

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.
