Consider for a moment that we are not perfect or complete as men. We make mistakes which can often have us feeling like we’re taking one step forward and two steps back. This can often lead to feelings of doubt and hopelessness whilst questions such as ‘why?’ and ‘what’s the point?’ make their way into our head. At this juncture it is important to pick ourselves up and focus on who and what we are, rather than the negatives. Of the greatest importance is to never give up the fight and to continue on the road to becoming a better man. The type of man your grandfather was and father is. At times when I am working through some tough issues, I remind myself of a few things my father told me: Head up. Shoulders back. Chest out. Look the world in her eyes. Whilst these tips from Goldman Sachs may not directly help you to deal with the trials and tribulations which life throws at you, they’ll certainly help you to become a more rounded man.

  • Learn how to fly fish.

  • No selfies. Aspire to experience photo-worthy moments in the company of a beautiful woman.

  • Own a handcrafted shotgun.  It’s a beautiful thing.

  • There’s always another level. Just be content knowing that you are still better off than most who have ever lived.

  • You can get away with a lot more if you’re the one buying the drinks.

  • Ask for a salad instead of fries.

  • Don’t split a check.

  • Pretty women who are unaccompanied want you to talk to them.

  • Cobblers will save your shoes. So will shoe trees.

  • When a bartender buys you a round, tip double.

  • The cliché is that having money is about not wasting time. But in reality, money is about facilitating spontaneity.

  • Be spontaneous.

  • Find a Times New Roman in the streets and a Wingdings in the sheets. She exists.
