Career

Ever notice that good things only seem to happen to OTHER GUYS? It's not that they are luckier. Notice opportunity then capitalize on it!
They often use phrases like “my dream job” or “a girl like that doesn’t come along every day…”
And they are dreamers.
Sometimes the dreamers out there get seduced by their fantasies though, and prefer to LIVE IN them rather than entering the real world to engage it as men.

Losing Your Job in Style

One of those things about life that's bittersweet is that endings do come, but when they do, you can be truly free to say and be who you really are.
I have a rare opportunity as a friend this week as opposed to being an “expert.” A friend of mine lost a job, so it’s time to step in to help like a buddy does. It's not a time for sciency stuff and "how-to" advice. That can all come later, but for now, we can all learn from this primal experience men have.

Killing the Golden Goose

There once was a farmer who discovered, miraculously that one of his hens had the ability to lay eggs made of gold. He and his wife would gather these eggs and take them to the city, to find they were soon growing quite rich.

But an interesting and common thing happened - they became greedy, and tried to find ways to force the hen to lay even more golden eggs more rapidly.

Finally, at wits end with trying ways to speed up the riches, they cut the hen open, figuring that there must be even more gold inside if they were so magically able to hatch golden eggs.

Overcoming the Day Job

Q: My question is about choosing a right mission and about the moral issue of leaving a company just after having been hired. Last week I started a new job that is limited to one year. I am quite good at it, and the pay is very good. However, sitting in front of the computer screen all the day , this job has no potential to masculinize me or to help me learn to be in charge of others. I am thinking about quitting the job as this year might be a waste of time.

We all have varying degrees of tolerance for being criticized, and for how much, when, where and why to associate with coworkers, bosses and friends. As the world economy sputters and missteps - leaving many "trapped" in their current work environment - it sure would be handy to have a quick guide to recognizing the various brands of unavoidable criticism, while being aware of how to be a better, more constructive critic of others.

Perhaps one of the ultimate quotes for men on the topic of courage is that from Teddy Roosevelt's famous speech:
