“One of the greatest is something my dad taught me. It basically translates to, ‘Don’t bow down to anyone until you go to their funeral and see them rise from the coffin.’ In other words, no matter who you are, you are equal to everybody. Whether it is a king or queen or president, look them right in the eye.”

*No one is better than you. Don’t bow down to anyone today. Listen to Wyclef for motivation.

John Paul I is remembered as someone close to ordinary people who understood their struggles and their dreams, and who knew how to make church teaching accessible and relevant.

He was dubbed “the Smiling Pope” by his people and known for his humor and good-natured attitude.

*Don’t take religion so seriously. Have fun with it. If your church, and the people in it, take things too earnestly – that is your sign to look for something better. Find yourself a “Smiling Pope”.

MTV’s Beavis and Butthead could help you find a rewarding career.

The Beavis and Butthead matrix is a way of sorting out your likes and dislikes into “things that are cool” and “things that suck.” This way, you can effectively filter out career paths that aren’t a good fit.

*Make a 2-column list of “things that are cool” and “things that suck”. Pursue a career with something listed on “things that are cool” column and avoid anything relating to your “things that suck” column. Watch Beavis and Butthead for motivation.

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.
