Jerry Seinfeld 1954

“I read an article a few years ago that said when you practice a sport a lot, you literally become a broadband: the nerve pathway in your brain contains a lot more information. As soon as you stop practicing, the pathway begins shrinking back down. Reading that changed my life.”

*Therefore, Seinfeld continued to work on his craft as a comedian. You should continue to work on what is most important to you.


Michelle Pfeiffer 1958

She runs 4-6 miles a day on the treadmill and eats a vegan diet to improve her health and longevity.

*Run 4 to 6 miles on the treadmill and eat vegan today. Watch Scarface for motivation.


Willie Nelson 1933

Be Yourself

If there is one thing that Willie Nelson has always done better than anyone else, it’s being Willie Nelson.

*Be yourself. It’s good for your soul. So is listening to Willie Nelson.


Duke Ellington 1899

One reason why he never worked harder than he did at his music – he saw music primarily as a way into the high life. It was no secret that his attraction to these three things — money, women, and fame — were irresistible incentives for his participation in music.

*What do you see as a way into the high life?

Which 3 things motivate you the most?


Daniel Day-Lewis 1957 – watch Lincoln

*Watch Daniel Day-Lewis win 1 of his 3 Oscars as Abraham Lincoln.


Uma Thurman 1970 – Durward Kirby burger and the famous “Five Dollar Milk Shake”

Vincent and Mia order a “Douglas Sirk” steak and a “vanilla Coke” for Vincent, and a “Durward Kirby” burger and the famous “Five Dollar Milk Shake” for Mia.

*Make the Durward Kirby burger and wash it down with a $5 milkshake. Enjoy this 1950s meal while watching Pulp Fiction.


How was the Durward Kirby burger?

How was the $5 milkshake?

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.
