CORNELL IRAL HAYNES JR. DAY

MIND

James K. Polk 1795

Polk rarely allowed himself to become overwhelmed, never feared delegating, and always demanded accountability in return.

*These are 3 great traits to start mastering today.

Don’t allow yourself to become overwhelmed

Never fear delegating

Demand accountability

BODY

Jimmy Garoppolo 1991

He almost exclusively ate chicken, spinach and rice for every dinner. And he listed off workouts to his dad: lifting, stretching, throwing repetition drills.

*Chicken []       spinach []        rice []              

lifting []  stretching []  and throwing workout []

You could look just like Jimmy G!

‘The religion I have is to love and fear God, believe in Jesus Christ, do all the good to my neighbor, and myself that I can, do as little harm as I can help, and trust on God’s mercy for the rest.’

Do all the good to your neighbor and yourself that you can

Do as little harm as you can

And trust on God’s mercy for the rest

MONEY

Warren G. Harding 1865

The only ranking he will ever top is one for how much hush money presidents paid their mistresses.

*One way to save money, is to be the opposite of President Harding. He lost the White House china in a poker game – don’t gamble. He hired his friends who weren’t qualified, – hire the right people. And we’ll never know how much hush money he had to pay to his mistresses – be faithful.

ENTERTAINMENT

Nelly 1974

Ross’s leftover Thanksgiving food becomes part of an epic sandwich he called “The Moistmaker”

*Use leftovers from yesterday’s turkey dinner and today’s green bean casserole to make “The Mositmaker”. Don’t let anyone at work steal it.

BONUS: Hannah Hart 1986 – green bean casserole

“We knocked it out of the f—king park!” she says. “We got some green bean converts!”

DOUBLE BONUS: Marie Antoinette 1755 – Marie Antoinette’s birthday cake for dessert

Pin-Up - Marie Antoinette — Andrew Baker

“qu’ils mangent de la brioche.” This means “let them eat an egg-based bread”

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.
