CORNELL IRAL HAYNES JR. DAY

MIND

James K. Polk 1795

Polk rarely allowed himself to become overwhelmed, never feared delegating, and always demanded accountability in return.

*These are 3 great traits to start mastering today. Don’t allow yourself to become overwhelmed, never fear delegating, and demand accountability. You’ve got about 2 months left to be like Polk this year.

BODY

Jimmy Garoppolo 1991

He almost exclusively ate chicken, spinach and rice for every dinner. And he listed off workouts to his dad: lifting, stretching, throwing repetition drills.

*Chicken, spinach, and rice for dinner after your lifting, stretching, and throwing workout.

SOUL

Daniel Boone 1734

‘The religion I have is to love and fear God, believe in Jesus Christ, do all the good to my neighbor, and myself that I can, do as little harm as I can help, and trust on God’s mercy for the rest.’

*Take today to do all the good to your neighbor and yourself that you can. Do as little harm as you can. And trust on God’s mercy for the rest.

MONEY

Warren G. Harding 1865

The only historical ranking he’ll ever top is the one about how much hush money presidents paid their mistresses.

*One way to save money, is to be the opposite of President Harding. He lost the White House china in a poker game – don’t gamble. He hired his friends who weren’t qualified and they were beyond corrupt – hire the right people. And we will never know how much hush money he had to pay to his mistresses – be faithful.

ENTERTAINMENT

“qu’ils mangent de la brioche.” This doesn’t mean “let them eat cake;” it means “let them eat an egg-based bread”

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.
