MIND

Jimmy Fallon 1974

“Frankl,” says Jimmy Fallon. “Man’s Search for Meaning. I read that book while I was in the ICU—my doctor told me to read it. I highlighted quotes and things. I e-mailed all my friends. I’m like, ‘Dude, you have to read this book—I know the meaning of life.’”

Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual.

*Ask yourself hour by hour whether you are staying true to what life expects from you.

Start reading “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Frankl.

BONUS: Adam West 1928 – “Over the years, I’ve learned that if you can just hang in there and, regardless of what’s presented to you, take it as a challenge and try to bring in something fresh, then it works.”

“It turned out I ran at a 10 inclination and a speed of 10 miles per hour. It was the toughest thing I’d ever done, but I learned to let go of my preconceived notion of my limits.”

*Challenge your limits today.

SOUL

Twiggy 1949

“Organized religion is not for me. Most wars over the centuries have been about religion. I think fate plays a big role in our lives and that if we were nicer to one another the world would be a better place.”

*Like yesterday. Just be nicer to people to start making the world a better place.

MONEY

Trae Young 1998

Young’s father Rayford Young started teaching his son about smart financial habits in high school. He even made him get a credit card when he was a junior.

Trae “never got to use the credit card much,” but as his father, he “would make sure that when he did it was paid off every month.”

*If you do have credit card debt, take today to either pay it off or come up with a plan to pay it off as quickly as possible.

ENTERTAINMENT

The secret to ageing is to remain interested and not look back. I know some things could have gone better, but at the time that was the best I could do.”

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.
