“Commit to work on yourself every day, to become a little better, a little smarter, and in time the best version of you will be realized.”

*Work on yourself today. Become a little better, a little smarter – the goal of 365DOLF. Read Nature – his essay in which he put forward the foundation of Transcendentalism

“I would like to be remembered for standing up for the right thing. It’s always more important to do the right thing than to win medals. I’d like to change this generation and the next generation so that by the time I have kids, everyone will be educated, so a child never, ever has to say the words, ‘Me too.’”


Ian McKellen 1939

“Living honestly is the only way you can be sure you are pursuing the right profession, that you are surrounding yourself with the right people, and ensuring that you are being honest not only with the rest of the world, but with yourself.”

*Be honest with yourself today. Are you pursuing the right profession? Are you honestly happy with your current job?

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.
