Three Master Moves in the Workplace

Most people have heard of the term, "acting out," when it comes to bad behavior, errors in social politics, and your embarrassing uncle who comes to Thanksgiving dinner once a year, but it is exceptionally powerful for you to define this term in a new way and harness the power of "seeing psychology" in your career moves through the Men's Psychology Mature Masculine Power Program.

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:

Michael Jordan Wrestles Angels

It's a new year and the stakes in your life couldn't be higher. You just know it's time to finally kick some ass and make things happen for yourself.

You could be in your twenties and for most of your life so far, you couldn't get yourself a girlfriend. You know that if you can't do that, you'll have an even harder time getting on track to the life you want in the future, which might include getting married. You can't even think about career issues right now with a challenge like this.

Business as War and Personality as a Weapon

It's been a very long time since I played chess, but I'll never forget learning. I was in high school and my father taught me at home. He had never mentioned it before, but one day he simply decided to reveal the rules to me. I had never seen him play it, and in the end he wasn't very good, but I figured there was a reason he suddenly decided it would be good for me to know the rules too. And that was the point - knowing the rules, not winning a particular game. Practice would take care of the rest.
