George HW Bush 1924

“He embraced compromise as a necessary element of public life, engaged his political foes in the passage of important legislation, and was willing to break with the base of his own party in order to do what he thought was right, whatever the price.”

*Embrace compromise today, especially if it’s what you think is right in the first place. Don’t argue just to keep the argument going.


Mark Henry 1971

How does your approach to training differ from when you were, say, in your 20s?

“I squat, deadlift, bench, anything with a lighter weight. I’ll try to do as many reps as I can in the shortest timeframe. My workouts usually take 45 minutes at the most, and I’m dripping with sweat. Then I stretch, and I do cardio for 30-45 minutes. I have a recumbent bike and a regular upright bike. I do a little bit on the elliptical, but I prefer the bike.”

*Work out like ‘Sexual Chocolate’ and maybe you can become The World’s Strongest Man.

BONUS: Kendra Wilkinson 1985 – calorie blasting workout

Get the secret to her ripped abs, toned triceps, & lean legs with this calorie-blasting workout she created.

*Use Kendra’s workout as your cardio for the Mark Henry workout


Anne Frank 1929

“I want to go on living even after my death! And that’s why I’m grateful to God for having given me this gift, this possibility of developing myself and of writing, of expressing all that is in me. . .. Will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much.”

*Be grateful to God for the gifts that he has given you. Don’t wait too long before sharing them with the world.


David Rockefeller 1915

“I am convinced that material things can contribute a lot to making one’s life pleasant, but, basically, if you do not have very good friends and relatives who matter to you, life will be really empty and sad and material things cease to be important.”

*Which material things make your life pleasant?

Who are the friends and relatives who matter to you?

Compare these last two answers


Frances O’Connor 1967 – watch The Missing

*Watch O’Connor almost win a Golden Globe in The Missing.


Adriana Lima 1981 – best Lima beans you’ll ever eat

“I eat for health, not for pleasure.”

*Eating healthy dishes like this is Victoria’s secret.


BONUS: Marv Albert 1941 – have a Marv Albert cocktail as a nightcap.

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.
