#22Kill 22-Day Push-Up Challenge, Day 6

I missed a couple of days, but my daughter asked, “aren’t you still doing the push-up thing,” and I was like, yes, and so what if I missed a day or two. Right? I’m doing it to inspire others and maybe spread the word…

#22Kill 22-Day Push-Up Challenge, Day 5

I’m a little envious of my man H.F. who’s not only doing the #22Kill 22-Day Push-Up challenge, he’s doing it in a much more entertaining way than I am. He’s doing push-ups in the back of a moving pick-up truck. On the roof of…

#22Kill 22-Day Push-Up Challenge, Day 4

#22Day Push-Up Challenge, Day 1

5-Minute Blogging

7:43 – Start Tim Ferriss, my ultimate guru, recommends writing in a journal for 5-minutes to start each day. He also recommends meditating daily. He recommends cold showers, exercise, fasting, and delegating tasks to free up time for big things. I’ve been a devoted…

All American

Where did I go wrong? What could I have done better? I got this mug (pictured at the top) at Christmas from my 7-year-old daughter and I should be flattered, but instead … I’m troubled. Did she walk right past the “#1 Dad” mug,…

Learning Something Every Day
