Every morning Steve Jobs would ask himself this question: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today?” 

If too many days went by with the answer being “no,” he made changes in his life. He did this until he hit a consistent yes, which drove him to countless innovations and a company worth $702 billion.

*Ask yourself this same question this morning and answer honestly.

If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do? __________ – Do this every morning until you hit a consistent yes.

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.
