Ross Perot 1930

“The activist is not the man who says the river is dirty. The activist is the man who cleans up the river.”

*Be an activist. Think about something that you’ve been complaining about and fix it today.


Khloe Kardashian 1984 – watch Revenge Body

*Watch Khloe help people get their revenge bodies as motivation to get your best BODY. Recreate the workouts you see or get a Revenge Body workout



Helen Keller 1880

Keller derived her lifelong spiritual inspiration from the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.

The Swedenborg Foundation is your connection to spiritual resources―including books, webcasts, and social media communities.

*Be like Helen Keller and be spiritually inspired by Emanuel Swedenborg.



Vera Wang 1949

“I try to not get ahead of myself,”

“Sometimes you are influenced by the people around you and they’re pushing you and it’s hard to make every decision a right decision. But I try to have my feet on the ground. It’s been a trip of passion and respect for the client and respect for how relevant you have to keep the brand in a changing world.”

*As you’re building your dream business, reflect on each of these –

How to not get ahead of yourself

How to keep your feet on the ground

Being passionate

Staying relevant


Tobey Maguire 1975 – watch Brothers (2009)

*Watch Maguire almost win a Golden Globe in Brothers.


Bobby Wagner 1990 – a bowl of oatmeal and strawberries

If you want to learn the secret behind Wagner’s success, you better ask about the oatmeal. Every single day last season, the veteran Seahawks linebacker consumed the same breakfast — a bowl of oatmeal and strawberries. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: oatmeal, oatmeal, oatmeal.

*Could you eat this every day? ____________________

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.
