Attracting Women

A complete approach to "winning her back" or "getting over her"...

 Winning at Work

Let me start by saying that I love amateurs. I love being an amateur at ninety-eight of the top one-hundred or so most enjoyable things in life. I wonder where all the amateurs of the world have gone.

 Being of Worth

If you've ever wondered why the juicy gossip stories almost never accurately reflect the man's side, this one is for you...

Rising to Power: The New Science of "The Zone"

Men are wired to worry about how they fare against other men. How do we stack up, and where do we fit in to the hierarchy? This ancient reflex makes perfect evolutionary sense. Consider that males, because of their larger body size and muscularity, hunted and killed in primitive times.


Women who argue with you may be more interested in being right, than happy.

When women BLAME you for something going wrong in your relationship, on your date, or in THEIR lives, it can be tempting to feel bad about that.

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.

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.

Steve Jobs Dies

I'm not a technical person and I'm a woman, so technical gadgets etc. don't play a huge role in my life the way they do for many men, but I have to say that I LOVE my iphone like it's a living thing.  I have raved on to friends numerous times about my awe of the technology that Apple created/developed with that phone and the subsequent ipad etc.

I have also always admired how Apple not only withstood the onset of Microsoft all those years ago, but excelled by using innovation and creativity as its centrepiece. 


I remember a great riddle from when I was in high school - one which was known to reveal those of us with child-like creative wonder (because children always get the answer right long before adults.) It was also an amazing thing to ask a woman on a date, just to see if she too, has a childlike wonderment at the mysteries of the universe.

It goes like this:

"What is greater than God, more evil than the Devil, rich people want it, poor people have it, and if you eat it, you die?"

Men: Before Getting Married, Read This Book

Watching a favorite TV show (HBO's Entourage), I realized how clueless men have become toward the ugly realities of divorce in America. Nobody gets married expecting to fail, and cheerful optimism is one of the endearing qualities of newly-married couples. But you don't have to be a cynic to see that most men are simply not prepared, mentally and emotionally, to face the cruelty that a woman can unleash on a man when a marriage crashes and burns.
