MY LAI DAY

MIND

Lauren Graham 1967

“Once again, I’ve been thwarted by the massive difference between my vision of the successful me and the me I’m currently stuck with.”

*Describe the vision of the “successful” you

BODY

Alexandra Daddario 1986

“For Baywatch, I started doing weight training, which I had never done before, and I saw a huge difference,”

“It was kind of amazing, the transformation I went through.”

“I still do yoga, it helps me manage anxiety and improve my sleep, which are both key—feeling good mentally is just as important as feeling good physically.”

*Weight training and yoga today.

SOUL

James Madison 1751

“Let me recommend the best medicine in the world: a long journey, at a mild season, through a pleasant country, in easy stages.”

*If you can’t take this long journey today, take today to plan it out – it’ll be medicine for your SOUL.

MONEY

Blake Griffin 1989

“We want to get into film, TV, digital, and lay the foundation for a company that we can run once we’re done with our current careers.” 

*Blake Griffin running a Hollywood production company while still playing in the NBA (when he’s not hurt) is another reminder to use your current job to fund your next act in life.

How are you using your current job to help prepare you for your second act in life?

ENTERTAINMENT

Jerry Lewis 1926 – watch Boeing, Boeing

*Watch Lewis almost win a Golden Globe in Boeing, Boeing.

FOOD

Flavor Flav 1959 – Flavs Fried Chicken

Flav’s Fried Chicken, the first of a planned chain co-owned by the Public Enemy emcee and reality television star, struggled with bounced paychecks to its employees.

*Shockingly, Flavor Flav’s restaurant has closed, but try the recipe in honor of what could have been.

SNUB – Joel Embiid 1994

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.
