Happy National 🏡Home🏠 Organization Day!

What a way to place that need for order as we ring in the New Year!

Let’s welcome ☼everyday☼ with

I live by these planning approaches:

  • Fail to plan, plan to fail. ~ Brian, 👊🏽Toned Up💪🏽 on Bravo!❗️
  • Plan to work, work to plan. ~ Alex, Carpenter from 🏡Treehouse Masters🌳 on 🦁APL🌎

Here’s my organizational strategy:

  1. Map out day (night before) 🕯💡🛣🌃🌉
  2. Visualize: Pray🙏🏽 ☝🏽️✌🏽️👓🌈
  3. Exercise💓💞 👣👟🏋
  4. Breakfast ☕️🍊🍳🍞🧀
  5. Tackle the tough things 1st 🏉🏈🏅🎖🏆

A couple of my Catholic brothers have made these remarks about planning (paraphrased):

  • How do you make GOD laugh? Tell Him your plans! ~ Danny Barrera, JD 👔
  • What’s the point of planning? It takes up more time! ~ Capt. Kirk‘s Dad ✈️

While I’m an advocate for daily game planning to help us establish order in our lives, our plans don’t work unless we

  • know that we can’t implement them singlehandedly, and
  • that our ultimate goal is to follow GOD’s perfect plan 👏🏽🙌🏽

In Jim Grassi‘s Guts Grace & Glory, connections are made between the football field and Christianity. Dr. Grassi, who has worked with pro football players in my beloved Bay Area, makes athletes’ testimonies and scripture readings relevant with the game and our overall moral conduct as a whole…

School Sources

Besides the textbook from which which I teach, I also refer to supplementary sources for my speech students! While I still separate religion from education in the public school system, I tie in certain codes of conduct practiced when relevant.

This leads me to pursuing my legacy, even at my age, because we never know whether we’ll still be here tomorrow ~ so

How will you be spiritually when you meet your maker?
