Ben Carson 1951

Dr. Carson has many years of experience weighing risks and applies his Best/Worst Analysis by asking himself the following four questions:

  1. What is the best thing that can happen if I do this?
  1. What is the worst thing that can happen if I do this?
  1. What is the best thing that can happen if I don’t do it?
  1. What is the worst thing that can happen if I don’t do it?

*What have you been putting off because you weren’t sure if you should do it or not? Apply Ben Carson’s Best/Worst analysis to what you want to do. Answer the 4 questions above.

*Take on the last leg of the Tour de France, on a stationary bike today. 116 km. No PEDs needed.

There is one criterion that shows how important Pitino was to Louisville’s athletic department: He led Louisville as it became the richest NCAA men’s basketball program, and it wasn’t even close.

*When you create value, you can get away with a lot more than someone who doesn’t. But there is a breaking point for everyone.

Tony tells his mother, that he expects her to be at A.J.’s birthday party with her baked ziti, she calls the house later, crying, to cancel. A.J. responds to the news appropriately. “No F*ckin’ Ziti?”

It’s the last Soprano family meal we see them enjoy together. As they consult their menus, one thing unites them: a basket of onion rings. “Best in the State, Far as I’m Concerned.”

*Enjoy ziti al forno while watching the first episode of The Sopranos. Make a basket of onion rings to eat while watching the last episode.

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.
