Secrets of a Female Arch Enemy

Every man comes face to face with the perfect storm of a woman behaving discourteously, the pressure of her peer group (on her side), the perils of gossip, reputation, and masculine identity in the workplace being fragile. What to do flawlessly to navigate the stormy waters...

I had a female Arch-Enemy until two nights ago, when a stunning and unexpected thing happened.

She APOLOGIZED.

One Strike, You're Out! (with Women)

I was struck by a sudden realization recently about the concept of "which hat am I wearing" that we've covered many times in the teleseminars of http://www.menspsychology.com/university.

It was this: As men, we all wear "career hats" all day long, often every day. It can be a pervasive habit to always keep that career hat on. But...

What the "Midnight Hour" Gives You as a Man

When I went to see Woody Allen's film, Midnight in Paris, I was told it's a "romantic comedy" about a bad relationship, and expected all kinds of lessons about attraction, dating and marriage. I didn't at all expect that it was going to be an equally thought provoking guide to career choices coming from our inexplicable experiences with the unexpected. That it would treat the two prime concerns of men in the form of women and work in equal balance, or how it is that the hour of midnight has a role in a man's life, were the biggest surprises of all.

The Personal "Magic Bullet"

If you are a man who's browsed our material, and never bought a single thing - not one technology-laden ebook, not one mind-blowing video course, and certainly never attended one life-altering live training, then consider one, simple rule that you already know is true inside, and think of it as our further free gift to you...

Once upon a time, men were friends, and they'd help each other for free. Today, everyone's a "Dating Guru" instead... I’d come back from London’s “Bootcamp,” but it was actually more of a Men’s Expedition to be honest.

Death as a Masculine Power

What does the death of a male mentor mean for your own identity as a man?
The funeral I am driving to, is that of Dr. G. Alec Stewart, a prominent physicist, and Dean of the Honors College where I went to school. In fact, it was his idea to even have an Honors College.
To me, he was THE mentor, benefactor, and advocate.
