Stopping Men Who Want to "One-Up" You

You have all been there. Whether it's regarding women or work, and he's a man who thinks you were born yesterday, and he wants to "One-Up" you.

You may know him well, barely know him, or don't know him at all, you sense just a little too late that he's already gotten one over on you, poached the woman, pilfered your information, or even robbed you blind.

Think Like a Surfer, Not an Accountant

Many guys struggle with career decisions such as what to choose in a job, when to quit, how to navigate the corporate politics, or how to even stay afloat in this economy in the first place. Very few have a "bird's eye view" on what their likely future path is going to be in career, as most of us at least some of the time, tend to "wing it." It turns out that this might be the whole point - that in discovering and executing on what it is that you were meant to do in life, it's better to have the mentality of a surfer than an accountant.
