SEAN CONNERY DAY
Claudia Schiffer 1970
“I try to extract something positive from every situation, even if it’s just learning not to make the same mistake twice.”
*Try to extract something positive from every situation today.
Blake Lively 1987
Day 3: Pool day
Lively did interval work in the water—and mixed it up by treading water or doing long-distance swimming for about 30 minutes a day.
*This comes from a great website, wellandgood.com and is the Day 3 of Blake Lively’s workout week that stresses intensity. Tread water and do long-distance swimming today. Watch her in The Shallows for motivation to swim faster – think Castaway meets Jaws meets Baywatch.
Tim Burton 1958
“Most people say about graveyards: “Oh, it’s just a bunch of dead people. It’s creepy.” But for me, there’s an energy to it that it not creepy, or dark. It has a positive sense to it.”
*Visit someone special’s gravesite today. It has probably been a while.
Gene Simmons 1949
“Life is business, and I approach life the way sharks approach life – they must keep moving or else they will drown.
“I’ll never stop hunting more money, I’ll never have enough.”
*Keep moving today and never stop hunting more money. Listen to KISS for motivation.

“You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way!
