George Lucas 1944


*Easier said than done. But simple advice that says it all. I am afraid. I’m afraid to quit my job. I’m afraid that 365DOLF isn’t going to be the success that it is in my mind. If you are reading this, I’ve overcome at least some of my fears. Now it’s your turn.


Clay Matthews 1986

“I work out six days a week, Monday through Saturday, with Sunday being my day off. My days consist of everything from field work, to being in the weight room, mixing in yoga and Pilates, boxing, and sometimes MMA.”

*Pick one… weight room, yoga, Pilates, boxing, or MMA


Frank Gore 1983

“At Miami I was up, I was down, I was written off. When I was up, people wanted to be around me. When I was down, nobody’s around.’ What I went through in college made me the kind of person, I am.”

*Reflect on the ups and downs in your life.

Who was there for you?

How have these times made you the person that you are today?


Mark Zuckerberg 1931

“You are better off trying something and having it not work and learning from that than not doing anything at all.”

*5 1/2 months into this year. Hopefully you are trying something towards your dream business. If not – today is the day to get started.


Cate Blanchett 1969 –watch Blue Jasmine

*Watch Blanchett win an Oscar in Blue Jasmine – use it as motivation to tighten up your budget.


Rob Gronkowski 1989 – Gronk’s Mom’s Homemade Chicken Souffle

Gronk’s favorite home cooked meal: “I have to go with my mom’s homemade chicken soufflé. No one else has ever made it before and no one else has ever heard of it. I’m not even really sure what’s in it. I know there’s bread, chicken, a little soup, there’s cheese on top – I’m not exactly sure what else is in it but it’s bomb and not one of my friends has ever turned it down. That’s my favorite. Whenever my mom comes into town she makes a whole platter.”


“To this day, I still haven’t touched one dime of my signing bonus or NFL contract money. I live off my marketing money and haven’t blown it on any big-money expensive cars, expensive jewelry or tattoos and still wear my favorite pair of jeans from high school.”  – Gronk

*Enjoy Gronk’s mom’s chicken souffle and his money advice too. If you do drink like Gronk – follow the advice Tom Brady gave him.

One twist to TB12 was that Brady does not drink alcohol, so they had to come up with a plan that would allow Gronk to keep drinking. The alcohol diet is simple: For every alcoholic beverage, you must drink at least three glasses of water “to make up for cheating, to offset the ramifications.”

*Drink 3 glasses of water for every alcoholic drink today.

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.
