ROUGH RIDER DAY
Theodore Roosevelt 1858
Work hard. TR showed us that setting goals isn’t enough to overcome your weaknesses. You must work at it. Work hard daily on conquering your weakness. Focus all your energy on improving yourself daily.
*Make a list of your weaknesses. Set out an attack plan to overcome them. Work hard on this every day.
Lonzo Ball 1997
The first time Lonzo Ball did a Pull-Up, he was 4 years old. By the time he was 12, he was bench pressing and sprinting up hills a mile long.
*Pull-ups, bench pressing, and running up hills a mile long is your workout for today. Invite your dad to come watch you play a game of pickup basketball.
Emily Post 1872
“But etiquette also expresses something more, something we call “the principles of etiquette.” Those are consideration, respect, and honesty. These principles are the three qualities that stand behind all the manners we have. They are timeless and cross cultural boundaries, unlike manners, which can change over time and differ around the world.”
*Practice “the principles of etiquette” today. Consideration, respect, and honesty. Work hard on this every day. Check out her web site too – good stuff.
Sylvia Plath 1932
“I hate handing over money to people for doing what I could just as easily do myself, it makes me nervous.”
*Stop paying people to do things that you can easily do for yourself.
Scott Weiland 1967 – listen to Stone Temple Pilots
“This Is My Life, a Cautionary Tale. Maybe Somebody Can Learn from It.”
*Learn from Scott Weiland while listening to STP.
