A Guide To Being A Man Vol. I

I’ve gone through this introspective vibe for the past two years as I search for the answer to one question: What is a man? On the face of it, it seems a simple answer, but I’m searching for more than the simple or easy. I want to understand how to be a strong man. Not in terms of how much I can bench press or squat but rather a strength portrayed through a man who carries himself with complete confidence in who and what he is. It’s a process and stumbling upon gems such as the Goldman Sachs Unofficial Guide To Being a Man helps me on my way. Hopefully – if you’re in the same place – it will help you too.

  • Stop talking about where you went to college.

  • Always carry cash.  Keep some in your front pocket.

  • Rebel from business casual. Burn your khakis and wear a suit or jeans.

  • It’s okay to trade the possibility of your 80s and 90s for more guaranteed fun in your 20s and 30s.

  • The best public restrooms are in hotels: The St. Regis in New York, Claridge’s in London, The Fullerton in Singapore, to name a few.

  • Never stay out after midnight three nights in a row … unless something really good comes up on the third night.

  • You will regret your tattoos.

  • Never date an ex of your friend.

  • Join Twitter, become your own curator of information.

  • If riding the bus doesn’t incentivize you to improve your station in life, nothing will.

  • Time is too short to do your own laundry.

  • When the bartender asks, you should already know what you want to drink.

  • If you perspire, wear a damn undershirt.

How is that for some insanely good advice? Most are pretty simple and help you get control of your life whilst the odd one is really deep. I dig them and will apply them to my life. What about you? I have more to come…

You stay classy.
