“So, wellness is mind first: meditating. Then body: exercising and being aware of what you’re eating. And a dog is good to have around.”

*Meditate. Exercise. Eat well. Play with your dog. Don’t have a dog? You know what to do.


Luka Doncic 1999

*Rookie of the Year, Luka Doncic promised Mavs owner Mark Cuban that he would have 6-pack abs for his second year in the league. Make that same promise to someone today. Promise them that by the end of this year, you too will have 6-pack abs.


Dean Smith 1931

Saying Goodbye to Dean Smith, College Basketball's Liberal Conscience –  Mother Jones

“Good people are happy when something good happens to someone else.”

*Focus on the process of acting with honor and integrity today. Be genuinely happy for someone else’s success. Think of donating to the Dean E. Smith Opening Doors Fund.


Mario Andretti 1940


His designation as a Living Legend by the Library of Congress, is also a testament to his post-racing life as an entrepreneur and investor—one who earns much more today than he ever did behind the wheel.

*The career you are in right now is not your last act. It’s not too early to start thinking about the next act of your life. You can parlay the skills of your current job into a successful business.

In The Kitchen With John Turturro, Who Learned How To Cook To Get Laid

“It wasn’t until I had a girlfriend that I learned to cook. She said, “Listen, you’ve got to start washing the dishes and learning to do some things if you want to get into bed with me.” I could make a little aglio e olio [pasta with garlic and olive oil]. But she taught me how to cook with a wok and make meatloaf, which I actually like.”

*Cook for that special someone and see where it leads.

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.
