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.

It's the age-old question of what motivates us.

One of the ways of looking at a guy who seems to have a problem with motivation is this: is he even interested in what he is trying to get motivated to do?

And if he isn't motivated, could it potentially be that what he tries to set himself about doing is wrong for him, not suited to him, won't in the end be the reward he really wants if successful, and therefore it's all for the best that he not be motivated at that item?

An online article from The Wall Street Journal's 'Speakeasy' here describes how the tactics of top CIA operatives can be used to help advance your career or 'mission' progress. Secrecy and strategic thinking are vital parts of masculine instinct and are as old as men themselves. Where there there are groups of people there is politics and strategic communication.

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.

Depresculinity: A New Kind of Depression in Men

You always knew there ought to be a name for it - the state of mind suffered only by men, related to women and or work... and not be fully living. I have a word to coin. One that's likely been in your life at some point, if only for a day, or a week, or a month. It blocked your ability to meet women, but not to be out and about socially. It thwarted your sense of pride in your work, but not enough to prevent you from getting out of bed every morning to take the bus to that office cubicle.
