“I heard you read a lot. What should I read?” He said he’d been studying a stoic philosopher named Epictetus and that I should check it out.”

Always think about death: “Let death and exile and every other thing which appears dreadful be daily before your eyes; but most of all death: and you will never think of anything mean nor will you desire anything extravagantly.” – Epictetus

If we think that we’re going to die soon — we would never waste our time on money. Rather, we would focus our time doing our creative work, creating art, and spending time with our loved ones.

*Think about death today. Knowing that you will die.

How can you focus your time doing creative work?

“I really had no fitness regimen at all early in my career. My fitness schedule was basically dictated by how many golf balls I hit. I practiced quite a bit when I was younger. Between that and walking six miles a day over 30 tournaments a year, I felt that gave me plenty of exercise.”

*After walking 18 holes of golf today, what was your score?

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.
