How did you flatter them?

SOUL

Harper Lee 1926

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view. … Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

*Climb inside someone’s skin today and consider things from their point of view. Read To Kill a Mockingbird for motivation.

BONUS: Oskar Schindler 1908

“I just couldn’t stand by and see people destroyed. I did what I could, what I had to do, what my conscience told me I must do. That’s all there is to it.”

*What is your conscience telling you to do today?

MONEY

Jay Leno 1950

From the moment he entered the working world, he always had two incomes.

“I’d bank one and I’d spend one,” “When I started to get a bit famous, the money I was making as a comedian was way more than the money I was making at the car dealership,” “so I would bank that and spend the car dealership money.” “When I got ‘The Tonight Show,’ I always made sure I did 150 [comedy show] gigs a year so I never had to touch the principal,”

To this day, he’s never touched a dime of his “Tonight Show” money.

*Have at least two streams of income. Save the larger form of income and spend the other.

What are your two streams of income?

How are you spending the money?

*Watch Cruz win an Oscar in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

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.
