“My parents would say to me all the time: you can teach yourself anything better than someone else can teach it to you. Which I really think is true. Any curriculum that you design for yourself is going to be better, even if it’s not the absolute perfect one. You will follow what you care about.”

*Create your own curriculum for the things you want to learn. Follow what you care about to become the best person you can.

“I have a dog, Rocky, who I’m always taking out hiking. I like to be outside and in the sun — wearing sunscreen, of course. I love going for a run outside. However, I do also go to the gym and enjoy being on the elliptical machine. It’s all about movement for me — I’m not a yoga person. I also lift free weights at the gym and do some crunches!”

*Check off as many of the following as you can today.

After his father’s death, Kerr was targeted by several Arizona State fans who were chanting ‘your father’s history’ in Kerr’s direction, while he was warming up. Kerr cried. He then went on to wipe off his tears torching Arizona State with 20 points in the first half, making all six of his 3-point attempts.

*How can you torch the things that are making you cry?

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.
