Viktor Frankl 1905

“Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answers to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual.”

*The meaning of life is revealed daily and hourly, in your choice to take the right action and to perform your duties and responsibilities. Read Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning right now.

BONUS: Leonard Nimoy 1931 – “In critical moments men sometimes see exactly what they wish to see.”


Paige VanZant 1994

Each workout is a mix of dynamic warmups, plyometrics, several rounds of shadowboxing and kickboxing, and technique work, strength moves, and stretching.

“We change things up a lot, but there’s always a challenge,”

*Get to an MMA gym and challenge yourself with this work out


Diana Ross 1944

“Ross always looks like she swallowed the sun. If you’ve experienced her on stage, somehow you feel like she’s singing right to you and for you. It feels like her light turns your light on.”

*Look like you’ve swallowed the sun today, listen to some Diana Ross, and have your light turn someone else’s light on.


Keira Knightley 1985

Even though Knightley is worth around $50 million, she lives on an allowance of just $50,000 a year — right around the U.S. median household income of $53,046.

*What is your annual budget? If you maintain this budget, what will you do with the surplus money?


Alan Arkin 1934 – watch Little Miss Sunshine.

*Watch Arkin win an Oscar in Little Miss Sunshine.


Leslie Mann 1972

“Well I’m supposed to be vegetarian, but for some reason I’ve made it OK to eat pepperoni because it’s so good. But it seems like a fake meat. It doesn’t seem like a meat meat.

“It is a meat meat, but it’s probably the grossest meat you can have, but I’ve made it OK in my head to eat pepperoni for some reason.”

*Have a meat meat pizza for dinner.

BONUS: Kenny Chesney 1968 – key lime pie for dessert

Not too tart, not too sweet
My baby loves to watch me eat
Her … key lime pie
Her key lime pie

*Make Kenny’s favorite Key Lime Pie. Listen to his music while making it.

SNUB – Steven Tyler 1948 – TMZ asked Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler about his favorite kind of pie. Tyler responded, “Pootley pie.” “Pootley” is slang for marijuana. So try sprinkling some hemp seeds on the crust.

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.
