Journal of today’s activities:
While running this morning, I visualized another version of the Straight-A Guide Life Skills Program. I’ll write the new version for low-level offenders, including people convicted of driving offenses like reckless driving or driving under the influence. I’m theorizing that people who live recklessly are more susceptible to escalating levels of criminal behavior. I’d like to reach them. As a young man, I disregarded responsibility and I wasn’t willing to listen to positive role models. If I had an opportunity to learn from someone who paid a heavy price for his criminal behavior, I may have avoided losing so many decades to imprisonment.
I’m thinking that I could create a Straight-A Guide Life Skills Program that differs from our 50-hour program. Instead, I could create the program in 10-hour blocks, 20-hour blocks, 50-hour blocks, and 100-hour blocks. The individual would enroll in the program that worked best for him. Justin and I would market the life skills program to the judicial system, to prosecutors, and to defense attorneys. We could use at as an alternative-sentencing system. Rather than sending an individual to prison, judges could sentence the individual to one of our Straight-A Guide Life Skills Program. I’d like to work with universities on this project, and I’m going to begin making inquiries later this week.
These thoughts about a different Straight-A Guide Life Skills Program came to my mind while I ran 14 contemplative miles.
- Days since my release from 26 years in federal prison: 145
- Miles run today: 14
- Miles run this week: 14
- Miles run this month: 46.3
- Miles run in 2014: 46.3
- Miles I need to run to reach my 2,400-mile running goal for 2014:
- Number of miles I’m ahead of schedule or behind schedule: 13.45
- Today’s Weight: 161
