CUT UP YOUR CREDIT CARDS DAY

MIND

Alexander Graham Bell 1847

“I begin my work at about nine or ten o’clock in the evening and continue until four or five in the morning. Night is a more quiet time to work. It aids thought.”

*Try it out tonight. Start working on a project at 9:00 tonight and work on it until 4:00 tomorrow morning. See if this quiet time aids thought. Call someone and let them know how it works.

BODY

Herschel Walker 1962

He does 750-1500 push-ups every day as well as 3000 sit ups. He also mixes in 1,500 pull-ups, 1000 dips, and 1000 squats every day. For cardio he will run up to 8 miles and do sprints as well. He also does a regimen of martial arts and MMA after he has completed this workout every morning.

*Pick one of the above. 750 push-ups, 3000 sit ups, 1500 pull ups, 1000 dips, 1000 squats, run 8 miles, or complete an MMA workout. You’ve got all day, and because of Bell, you’ve got all night to complete this.

BONUS: Tracy Anderson 1975

SOUL

Chief Joseph 1840

“Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade where I choose, free to choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to talk, think and act for myself – and I will obey every law or submit to the penalty.”

*Use today as a reminder that YOU have all these freedoms.

MONEY

Buddy Valastro 1977

“My parents owned credit cards, but they rarely used them. I use mine, but I make sure I only charge what I know I can pay in full at the end of the month.”

*Have I mentioned how much I hate credit cards? Cut them up!

FOOD

Tyler Florence 1971 – shrimp and grits

“Inflexible recipes don’t work with the modern lifestyle anymore. They need to be re-translated to fit how real people actually cook and use technology.”

*Prove that you are a real person who can cook using technology.

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.
