Mr. T 1952

“Some people expect a free ride in life, cruising by on good looks and luck. Let me tell you something right now, it don’t work that way.”

*Watch the Mr. T video for motivation. I pity the fool who doesn’t.


Josh Hamilton 1981

Hamilton is immensely talented, but his demons never will be exorcised, and he will be only a drink or drug away.

BONUS: Ricky Williams 1977

“Marijuana, if you use it in a responsible way, accentuates the parts of sports that you love and helps you to do them better.”

*Exorcise your demons and exercise your body. Smoke weed responsibly and go to the gym. See what happens.

What is one demon that you need to Exorcise?

What is the one part of your body that you need to exercise?


Lisa Edelstein 1966

House star Lisa Edelstein organized her first protest at age 16 as a cheerleader for Donald Trump’s New Jersey Generals, outraged that the cheerleaders were forced to flirt in bars.

*What outrages you?

How could you organize a protest against this?


Josh Allen 1996

Allen’s earning power isn’t limited to the NFL. If all goes to plan, he’ll be able to reap the financial rewards of some expensive nuts planted on his family farm.

“I grew up on a ranch, basically in the middle of nowhere,” “My dad does cantaloupe, cotton, wheat, so now I’m going into pistachios with him. We just bought the trees; we’re probably going to plant in probably March or April.”

“We haven’t thought of any of the naming of our product yet, but I’m thinking ‘Josh’s Nuts.”

*Even if you have NFL money, have the nuts to look toward future earnings.

What is your plan that will reap financial rewards?


Notorious B.I.G 1972

“Stay far from timid. Only make moves when your heart’s in it and live the phrase: the sky’s the limit.”

*Listen to Biggie Smalls – the Brooklyn Thumper – the Notorious B.I.G. – Big Poppa.

One of the greatest of all jazz pianists

*Biggie Smalls and Fats Waller share a birthday. Enjoy this hot and sassy cornbread while listening to a mix of both.

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.
