MIND

Madame Curie 1867

She immersed herself in French and math and made ends meet cleaning glassware in university labs. Science thrilled her, and she earned a degree in physics in 1893 and another in mathematics the following year.

*Immerse yourself in what thrills you. Even if you have to grind to make ends meet.

BODY

“Working out for me…[is] more to take care of myself and get those endorphins going versus it being a job like it was a few years ago.”

*Get those endorphins going today by running, dancing, and/or snowboarding. Watch Amy Purdy’s TED talk about living beyond limits, for motivation – you have no excuses today.

SOUL

Prayer for the day

Almighty God, how glorious are my thoughts of You, for You are everywhere—loving and caring for the minutest details of our lives!

*On Billy Graham’s website you can get a daily devotional and a prayer for the day. This may be something that you want to put in your daily routine.

MONEY

Laura Vitale 1986

Vitale’s YouTube channel is able to get an average of 230,000 views per day from different sources. This generates an estimated revenue of around $350 per day ($130,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.

*This makes me realize that I need to get a 365DOLF youtube channel. My ultimate goal is to have a 365DOLF satellite radio station one day.

ENTERTAINMENT

Morgan Spurlock 1970 – watch Super Size Me

*Get some McDonald’s food (maybe for the last time) and watch Super Size Me. It almost won an Oscar and it may just keep you from eating fast food ever again.

FOOD

“Other than just popping one in your mouth, this is my favorite way to use up cherry tomatoes. One batch of confit yields enough tomatoes for a big pasta, a topping for fried or scrambled eggs, and abundant flavored oil to use in vinaigrettes.”

*Make Nosrat’s cherry tomato confit once a week and use it as a quick pasta sauce.

SNUB – Lorde 1996

Review –

  • Immerse yourself in what thrills you
  • Sweat for fun
  • Get a prayer for the day
  • Get a YouTube channel
  • Watch Super Size Me
  • Make cherry tomato confit

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.
