“Don’t feel like you have to say something.” “Be mysterious: let people wonder.”

*Be mysterious throughout today. Don’t feel like you have to say something. Cherish awkward silence and let people wonder.

Joe was known for his gracefulness—his classic swing, wide stance, short stride and powerful wrists.

*Drink some coffee and go to the batting cages to work on a classic swing, wide stance, short stride, and powerful wrists. Try to get 56 hits in a row.

SOUL

Percy Sledge 1940

The man who is best known for his first song, “When a Man Loves a Woman”, is so much more than a soul singer. He was a husband, a father, and was deeply inspired by church gospel music.

*Listen to Percy Sledge – with someone you love.

MONEY

Andrew Carnegie 1835

How Andrew Carnegie Became The Richest Man In The World - YouTube

Wealth: $372 billion

Carnegie’s boss had to make out some bills, so he asked Andrew to do it. He performed the task well, and his appreciative employer kept finding Carnegie odd jobs.

To Carnegie this was just the first step in his pursuit of better prospects, and he took it upon himself to prepare for the next opportunity that might open.

*Your current job may be just the first step in your pursuit of better prospects. You’ll stay in this job forever, if you are not on the lookout for a better opportunity and grabbing it.

ENTERTAINMENT

Christina Applegate 1971 – watch Hall Pass

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.
