MIND

Robert F. Kennedy 1925

Robert F. Kennedy was a true humanitarian and not at all like most politicians. He was moved by things he had witnessed and sought to make a difference. He also asked others who were privileged to do the same.

*Don’t be like most of the people in your profession. Be better than them. Be profoundly moved by things and seek to make a difference. Ask others like you to do the same.

BODY

Bo Derek 1956

“I realize how artificial it is, beauty,”

“I realize that it doesn’t last forever, that’s for damn sure.”

“Aging is really hard,”

“Man, when it starts really happening to you, it’s opposite of what you imagine. It’s all the worst parts. And it’s tough. Bette Davis was right; it’s not for sissies, it really isn’t!”

Despite being known for her Perfect 10 bikini body, Bo Derek shuns regular workouts for open-water, horseback riding and caring for her 110-acre ranch in Santa Ynez, California

*Swim in open water, horseback ride, or simply take care of your house (inside and out) today.

SOUL

Joe Biden 1942

Biden spoke about his deep faith and religion, and how it has helped him through the loss of his son.

He also shared his deep sense of spirituality, and how it keeps him positive, attributing part of his to his wife, Jill. who leaves inspirational notes for him, including a quote from philosopher Kierkegaard that read, “Faith sees best in the dark.”

*Let your faith, religion, and/or spirituality help you through any dark times today. Leave an inspirational note for a loved one.

MONEY

“I had schools telling me that if you come to my school you’ll start right away, we’ll give you a Jeep Cherokee, we’ll give you $1,000 a month, you don’t have to go to class, you just gotta come play ball for us. And that turned me off because I wasn’t used to getting handouts. I was used to working for everything I ever got.”

*Don’t take a handout, because then they own you. Work for everything you want.

ENTERTAINMENT

Mike D 1965 – listen to The Beastie Boys

“I’m interested in trying to do things that I feel like I have no business doing. Because that was part of what we did as a band. We weren’t afraid to try shit.”

*You might not have any business listening to The Beastie Boys and that is why you must.

FOOD

Dierks Bentley  1975 – big steak salad

Eating like Dierks Bentley does when he’s touring:

1: Skip the big breakfast and lunch and eat most of your calories after 5:30 p.m.

2: Make that big evening meal a giant, fully loaded salad, and go nuts on the protein.

3: Top that off, around 8:30 p.m., with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich — and  “a lot of alcohol to lock in the energy boost,”

*Eat like Country superstar Dierks Bentley today – make your first meal a huge steak salad at 5:30. Eat a PB&J at 8:30 and finish the day with lots of alcohol.

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.
