Dustin Johnson 1984

“Personally, my greatest triumphs in golf have occurred once I began truly succeeding in life,”

*As you improve your life through 365DOLF, what triumphs has this led to?


Pete Maravich 1947

*Get to a basketball court and work on Pistol Pete’s ball handling drills.



Kurt Warner 1971 – watch American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story

“I learned the hard way that I should’ve been more sparing with my religious rhetoric, and that I should’ve simply let my actions do most of the talking.

How can you let your actions do the talking when it comes to your faith today?

BONUS: Dan Brown 1964

“I remember saying to a minister, “I don’t get it. I read a book that said there was an explosion known as the Big Bang, but here it says God created heaven and Earth and the animals in seven days. Which is right?” Unfortunately, the response I got was, “Nice boys don’t ask that question.” A light went off, and I said, “The Bible doesn’t make sense. Science makes much more sense to me.” And I just gravitated away from religion.”

*Science or religion is a choice you may have to make. Unless you want to be a good boy and not ask hard questions.

*Cook with your significant other – pork chops and vegetables. Don’t forget to get your fat in. Watch Faison in the movie Clueless or the TV show Scrubs.

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.
