Treat People with Respect: People notice when leaders treat the least powerful people with great respect. That establishes connection.

He ditched half-chickens and pasta plates for six small daily meals of fruit, veggies, whole grains and lean meats.

“As the action of Scientology, when you are picking apart the chronology of your life and its effects upon you, it really helps to have that lucidity.”

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.
