“The advice that I wish I would have given myself is to not care about what other people are thinking.

*It’s not too late to give yourself this advice. For the rest of the year, do not care what other people are thinking. You can go into 2022 living this way.


Aaron Rodgers 1983

This workout is known for making famous quarterbacks including Aaron Rodgers puke with the “Do or Do not, There is No Try” slogan.

*Any time you can mix a workout with motivation from Yoda, it’s a win-win.


Nelly Furtado 1978

“I always remember that to be critiqued is part of being human; no one can escape it; it’s the price you pay for putting your vulnerability on display as a creative person. Failure is very important, as it is inevitability in life. Incredible growth, self-realization and reflection comes from failure.”

*Don’t be afraid to fail today. Think about the last time that you failed at something and how you grew from it. Listen to Nelly Furtado for inspiration.


Gianni Versace 1946

Gianni always said he only wants to employ people who aren’t as smart as him. He wants people who will snap to attention, and carry out his orders without question. Gianni wants everyone to think of him as some sort of living God.

*This would fall into the “what not to do category”. An example of how not to run your business empire. We know how things ended for Versace.


Britney Spears 1981

DUN DUN DUN. “Oh baby, baby …” In just three seconds …Baby One More Time announced the arrival of a new superstar.

*Listen to Britney, bitch.

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.
