“If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week.”

“There are different kinds of roses, and the roses suitable to the condition of the specific environment will go onto breed, and the roses that are not suitable to the environment will soon cease to exist.”

*Take time today to smell the evolved roses. Read some poetry and listen to music.

If you are caught up on your reading, dive into “The Origin of Species”

In honor of his passion, dedication, and persistence to succeed against all odds, each year the Summit Bank Foundation will award a four-year Bill Russell Scholarship to a student who has overcome adversity in their journey for success in education.

*He continues to make a difference well into his 80s. Make a difference yourself today. Donate to his charity or find one that is going to help the cause of fighting social injustice in your community.

MONEY

Lincoln made cuts that he felt were necessary to get his debts paid. Interestingly, he was also willing to slash his largest expense: his home expenses. He was willing to live in a “four-dollar-a-day tavern” to eliminate debt more quickly.

*Don’t beat yourself up about your debt but make a drastic measure today. Living in a tavern sounds pretty cool though. Pick something to slash and start putting that money towards paying off your debt today.

Not convinced? Read this quote from J. Rueben Clark –

“Interest never sleeps nor sickens nor dies; it never goes to the hospital; it works on Sundays and holidays; it never takes a vacation. … Once in debt, interest is your companion every minute of the day and night; you cannot shun it or slip away from it; you cannot dismiss it; it yields neither to entreaties, demands, or orders; and whenever you get in its way or cross its course or fail to meet its demands, it crushes you.”

ENTERTAINMENT

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.
