I’ve had a weekend of introspection. For the month of August, I’ve decided to lay off the booze.  A dry month is something which I’ve done on an annual basis for the past couple of years and I generally use the time to clear my thoughts. In general my weeks are spent focusing on work related issues whilst my weekends have consisted of me dealing with some sort of hangover, which really leaves me no time to meditate on bettering myself. It’s all good and well reading self-help books and what not,  but to see any true form of improvement, I need to digest the info, understand it and then project it. Here are some more tips for you from Goldman Sachs. Digest and project if you feel the need.

  • Piercings are liabilities in fights.

  • Do not use an electric razor.

  • Desserts are for women. Order one and pretend you don’t mind that she’s eating yours.

  • Buy a tuxedo before you are thirty. Stay that size.

  • One girlfriend at a time is probably enough.

  • #StopItWithTheHastags

  • Your ties should be rolled and placed in a sectioned tie drawer.

  • Throw parties. 
But have someone else clean up the next day.

  • You may only request one song from the DJ.

  • Measure yourself only against your previous self.

  • Take more pictures.  With a camera.

  • Place-dropping is worse than name-dropping.

  • When you admire the work of artists or writers, tell them. 
And spend money to acquire their work.

You stay classy,
