Develop BHAGs.

“BHAG” stands for “Big Hairy Audacious Goal.” Doc loved talking about BHAGs. He was almost obsessive about. He wanted Liberty students to become “Champions for Christ,” and a major way he foresaw this happening was for all of us to make humongous goals.

*Make your BHAG to become a champion for Christ.


Steve Wozniak 1950

When Jobs refused to hand over stock options, Wozniak dug into his own pockets and offered $10 million worth of Apple stock to early garage employees. He says it was “the right thing” to do.

Herbert Hoover 1874

Image result for herbert hoover

Hoover never finished high school, failed his college entrance exam and once admitted to college, wasn’t exactly the best of students. But he found a way to persevere once he found his niche: problem-solving, which led to an academic major, and then to a career as geologist and an engineer.

*Persevere and find your niche that will lead you to your true calling.


Kylie Jenner 1997

Being fit to me means staying active. We get to travel a lot, so we’re always on the move. It’s important to get out as much as possible, and just keep moving.

*Get out as much as possible today. Just keep moving.


Bobby Hatfield 1940

Bobby Hatfield is gone, but we have a feeling that his angelic voice is waiting for us.

*Listen to Bobby Hatfield’s angelic voice today. It’s good for your soul, and keeps you righteous.


Leo Fender 1909

He made millions of dollars, yet remained a humble inventor. His coffee “mug” was a styrofoam cup with “Leo” printed on it. He brought his lunch to work every day because “With the money I save eating these sandwiches, I can buy a handful of resistors.”

*If you don’t already, bring your lunch to work today. Make it a habit. And stop paying so much for that fancy coffee. It all adds up.


Antonio Banderas 1960 – watch And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself

Image result for antonio banderas pancho villa gif

One year I lived in nine different places, and landlords kept throwing me out when they realized I didn’t have any money! I remember walking down the street and looking between the sidewalk and the cars, in the hope that somebody dropped some coins. I did that every single day for months at a time. That’s how desperate I was.

*In June you had Pancho Villa stew, now watch Antonio Banderas play the Mexican outlaw.


Jimmy Dean 1928 – Mexican taco stuffed peppers

Image result for jimmy dean the man

One day, Jimmy Dean was sitting in a local diner in his hometown of Plainview, Texas. He was having sausage and eggs. Jimmy always did love sausage, but on this particular morning, he bit into a piece of gristle about the size of Texas. He turned to his brother Don and said, “You know, there has got to be room in this country for a good quality sausage!”

The rest is history. Jimmy Dean, the multi-talented country singer, TV show host and actor, went on to build America’s favorite sausage company right during the height of his entertainment career.

*Enjoy these Jimmy Dean Mexican taco stuffed peppers while watching Pancho Villa

Bob Cousy 1928

Image result for bob cousy

Once a game is over, no matter how high the victory or how galling a defeat, Cousy usually manages to relapse almost instantly into an honest-to-goodness calm, much to the mystification of his teammates, who generally require a much longer period to settle down. It takes Cousy a half hour, nonetheless, before he has the game completely digested. A liveliness then comes back to his eyes, the contours of his face become rounder, and there is a merriment in his remarks and a ready enjoyment of other people.

*No matter what happens today, be like Bob Cousy and relapse into an honest-to-goodness calm at the end of today.


Tyson Gay 1982

Image result for tyson gay

One of my toughest workouts would be on the track and it’s called a “400 Breakdown.” That’s where you run 300 meters, rest for 30 seconds, and then run 100 while you still have that lactic acid buildup. So you have two sets of those and then after that you do mat runs. Basically, you stand on a high-jump mat and do four sets of high knees for 30 seconds, and then as soon as you get off there you have to run 200 meters on the track with all that lactic acid still in your legs. You don’t look forward to doing it, but when you do it you really see the benefits.

*Get to a high school track and try this 400 Breakdown workout. Good luck.


Kurtis Blow 1959

While reading the Bible one day, Blow says, “I got so into it that I couldn’t put it down, and I got to the last book in the Bible, Revelations, and it’s sort of like a prophecy. And I said I’d better get my act together before all this stuff starts to happen.”

*Read the Bible today, especially Revelations. Get your act together! Play basketball afterwards.


Deion Sanders 1967

Image result for deion sanders gif

When it came to selecting a financial advisor I was not surprised to learn that all of stars I spoke with picked an advisor from their inner circle. Some like Deion Sanders have had the same advisor since he started in the big leagues.

  • Consider the planner’s pay structure. A planner who earns money based on commission rather than a flat, hourly rate could have an incentive to steer you in a particular direction.

*If you haven’t done so yet, get a Primetime financial planner today.


Whitney Houston 1963

Who you choose to spend your life with is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make: I’m not sure if the chicken or the egg came first when it comes to how Whitney and Bobby ruined each other’s lives.

*Listen to Whitney with the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with. You will always love them!


John Key 1961 – kiwi bread

His three election triumphs, skillful political management and enduring personal popularity made Key one of New Zealand’s most successful modern PMs.

According to a survey conducted by London-based think-tank the Legatum Institute, who considered 104 factors before coming to the conclusion that New Zealand should be crowned the top country on its Prosperity Index.

The United States failed to feature in the top 25—study.html

Dustin Hoffman 1937

Image result for dustin hoffman

We will all meet a Mrs. Robinson in our lives. No, I’m not talking about having a sexual affair with an older woman, but rather about meeting someone who uses you for their personal satisfaction (whatever that may be). It took Ben a while to realize Mrs. Robinson was just using him as an outlet to release the physical frustrations caused by her broken marriage. There is nothing wrong with this; just make sure you recognize it when it happens so you can find a way to take advantage of the situation as well.

*Realize who is using you and find a way to take advantage of the situation today.

On 19 March 1927, Varghese Kathanar founded the Sisters of the Destitute in Chunangamvely. This organization was intended to continue what he saw as Christ’s redemptive mission among the poor. He found abandoned people, brought them to the shelter of the Home for the Aged and nursed them.

*Research and find how you can help the homeless today.


Roger Federer 1981

He balances work and life.

Instead of competing at the exclusion of everything, Federer has created a work-life balance. In fact, he has said that he couldn’t do it without his family. Tennis is important but it is not everything.

*Write out a list of ways that you can start improving your work-life balance today.


Shawn Mendes 1998

Image result for shawn mendes

Attention to detail is Mendes’ specialty as an adolescent who grew up and became a superstar in the social media era. Through Vine, YouTube and Twitter, he built the type of massive, grassroots fandom over many months that can take most artists several years to obtain. It’s what made his rise to Number One, with his debut album Handwritten and single “Stitches,” so apparently seamless.

*Listen to Sean Mendes or watch him on YouTube.


Jerry Tarkanian 1930 – seven spiced shark steaks

Image result for jerry tarkanian gif

Jerry Tarkanian was one of basketball’s all-time great characters. His eyes showed his emotion, and his sideline towel revealed his lean toward the superstitious. Tarkanian won more than 900 games in college, including the 1990 NCAA national championship at UNLV. His greatest success came at UNLV with four Final Fours and a number of NBA players at the next level. Tark The Shark coached at Long Beach State, Fresno State, and UNLV making the base of his operation for his entire career the West Coast. He was innovative, gutsy enough to play full-court pressure basketball and still get his players out on the fast break at every chance. His Runnin’ Rebels really were just that – college basketball’s fast-paced, rebellious gunners. Tarkanian’s career was often overshadowed by run-ins with the NCAA, but he was remarkably successful with his players both on the court and off for nearly 40 years.

*Enjoy these seven spiced shark steaks in honor of the very spicy career of Tark the Shark. Chew on a wet towel for dessert.

Lee Corso 1935

Image result for lee corso gif

He’s fought hard to get back, but it’s a mountain peak he can’t reach. He goes through a pre-game ritual enunciating words that he may trip over during a telecast. He makes the occasional mistake. He takes a break, spending a little over two hours on a three-hour show. “And if I talk a long time, by night, I can hardly talk,” he said. “The system is disconnected and it hasn’t reconnected.”

Knowing the signs and symptoms of a stroke is the first step to ensuring medical help is received immediately. For each minute a stroke goes untreated and blood flow to the brain continues to be blocked, a person loses about 1.9 million neurons. This could mean that a person’s speech, movement, memory, and so much more can be affected.

Learn as many stroke symptoms as possible so you can recognize stroke FAST and save a life!

Lifestyle risk factors such as diet and exercise are part of controllable risk factors.

*My father had a massive stroke on May 4, 2017 and died on May 21, 2018. He never drank or smoked. He was working at 84 when it happened, so he was still active. But he did have undiagnosed AFIB that led to his stroke and tortuous death. Corso’s was less severe but still life changing. Go to and start changing any behaviors that could lead to a stroke. Trust me, you do not want to end your life like my dad did.

In a world of “great men” she was a proud, working-class, Irish woman who stood with her shoulders square and spoke with an impassioned voice that was eloquent, yet relatable; inspiring, but not condescending; and militant to the core.

*Stand with your shoulders square and speak with an impassioned, eloquent, inspiring voice today.


Wayne Knight 1955

Charlize Theron 1975 – watch Monster

Image result for charlize theron monster

“I felt like the script was so good that if you were going to do it, you had to do it visually, in a way that felt authentic to who she was, and I didn’t know if I could do that,” Charlize said. To transform her body to better match Aileen’s, Charlize told Howard she had to gain several pounds, which meant she could eat just about anything she wanted.

“It’s a fucking free-for-all. It’s amazing,” she said.

But not everybody involved on the film liked Charlize’s new look. “Our financier had no fucking idea what movie we were making,” Theron told Howard. “He thought he was making a hot Charlize Theron, Christina Ricci, lesbian love, sex movie.”

*If you’re wanting to see Theron as a beautiful model turned actress, this isn’t the movie for you, but it is what she won an Oscar for.

Alexander Fleming 1881

Image result for alexander fleming

Fleming’s combination of genius and grossness saved countless lives, spawned a massive pharmaceutical industry, and earned him a knighthood and the Nobel Prize — and gave messy people everywhere a new reason to take pride in their untidiness.

As Dr. Fleming famously wrote about that red-letter date: “When I woke up just after dawn on September 28, 1928, I certainly didn’t plan to revolutionize all medicine by discovering the world’s first antibiotic, or bacteria killer. But I guess that was exactly what I did.”

*Take pride in your untidiness and look for ways to improve the world through it. When you woke up this morning, you had no idea what you could accomplish today.


Charlotte McKinney 1993

Image result for charlotte mckinney

Charlotte McKinney, known for her sultry Carl’s Jr. campaign, had such a rough go in high school that she dropped out while she was 17 years old “because of all of the bullying,” she revealed.

The soon-to-be “Baywatch” star told Ocean Drive magazine that girls would often shout derogatory things at her inside the halls of her Orlando school (Boone HS).

“I would go to parties and get beer thrown on my head — there was so much bullying,” the 23-year-old said. “It was just so awful, and that’s why now I kind of use my platform to promote anti-bullying. I try to use what I went through to be a voice for it, because it’s still happening and getting even worse now with social media.”

Lots of sleep and tons of water is key for looking and feeling healthy,

*8 and 8 today. 8 hours of sleep and 8 glasses of water. No bullying!


Andy Warhol 1928

Andy [Warhol] was a Sphinx without a secret. In fact, he did have a secret, one that the kept dark from all but his closest friends: he was exceedingly devout—so much so that he made daily visits to the church of Saint Vincent Ferrer on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.”

*Even if you have to keep it from your friends, seek out being exceedingly devout.


Travie McCoy 1981

“Billionaire” by Travie McCoy featuring Bruno Mars

“And yeah I’ll be in a whole new tax bracket

We in recession, but let me take a crack at it

I’ll probably take whatever’s left and just split it up

So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks”

When people make more money, they naturally want to spend more money in fulfilling their various needs and desires that they have – by making extravagant purchase and indulging in a lavish lifestyle. This is very human and might seem like the right thing to do. And obviously with more income, you pay more taxes. However, simply sharing your wealth out with your loved ones should not be the way to spend the wealth.

*Again, it’s not how much you make, it’s how much you spend. Give someone you love a couple bucks, though.


Lucille Ball 1911 – watch I Love Lucy

Never give up on your dreams.

Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, otherwise known to the general public as Ginger Spice, announced in the middle of a world tour that she would be leaving the group. It was a sudden departure that did not leave much time for goodbyes—or apologies—until now. After a fan account tweeted at Halliwell (who now goes by her married name Geri Horner) on Wednesday to mark the 19th anniversary of her leaving, she tweeted back her apologies.

“I’m sorry about that,” she wrote. “Everything works out in the end, that’s what my mum says!”

If I’m running for longer and slower, then I get less rest time. But if my run time is faster and shorter, I get a longer time to recover so that I can run at a higher velocity next round. Rest is really important.

*Rest is important. But only if you’ve earned it. Run longer but slower or run shorter but faster today.


Adam Yauch 1964

Image result for adam yauch

But around the time of 1992’s Check Your Head, Yauch became a practicing Buddhist, and in many ways the spiritual center of the Beastie Boys, pushing them away from their knuckle-headed past towards a more adventurous, high-brow plus junk culture aesthetic.

Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to Insight into the true nature of reality. Buddhist practices like meditation are means of changing yourself in order to develop the qualities of awareness, kindness, and wisdom.

Buddhism teaches that the mind and the body cannot be understood independently of one another. This means that as well as cultivating the mind through meditation, the physical dimension of being is also very important.

*Look into Buddhism. I think it’s the closest thing to what 365DOLF is all about. Improving your mind, body, and soul. And listen to some Beastie Boys


Patrick Ewing 1962

On February 5th, 2004, a statue of Herbie was erected in St. Paul’s Rice Park across from the one of famed Minnesota author F. Scott Fitzgerald. It was Fitzgerald who wrote the now famous line: “Show me a hero and I will show you a tragedy.” That was Herbie. Gone from this earth, Herb Brooks has earned his place in sports immortality and will never be forgotten. One of our nation’s most charismatic and inventive coaches, he was a true American hero.
