Julian Assange 1971

“Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love.”

What is an injustice you have witnessed?

How did you act?


Olivia Munn 1980

Munn eats 80% raw and pays close attention to stretching

*How much did you stretch?

Jot down what you ate for each meal – shoot for 80% raw

Montel Williams 1956

“One of the greatest minds of the last century said, ‘A living is made by what you get, a life is made by what you give,’”

“I define success by people who understand that the universe will open up to you if you recognize your responsibility to give back.”

*Give back today and the universe will open up to you. Think of donating to MS Foundation – one of Montel’s favorite causes.


Scott Borchetta 1962

Borchetta looked at the most doom-laden climate in the history of the modern music industry, and decided it was the perfect time to start a record label.

*What is an industry that is doom-laden?

 How can you turn it into a dynamic enterprise again?


Tom Cruise 1962 – watch Jerry Maguire


*Today is the day. While watching Cruise almost win an Oscar in Jerry Maguire, when you hear “show me the money!” crack open the piggy bank full of $5 bills that you’ve been saving since Cuba Gooding Jr’s birthday on Jan. 2.


Sandra Lee 1966 – broiled tilapia with summer succotash

*Enjoy Lee’s broiled tilapia with summer succotash while watching Jerry Maguire with your soulmate.

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.
