The tips I’ve picked up from the chaps at Goldman Sachs have been priceless. Most of them are common knowledge and adding them to the various volumes of A Guide To Being A Man, simply affirms their truth. At the end of the day, we as men want to walk this world with our heads held high comfortable in the knowledge that we are true to ourselves and that which we believe in. This confidence is found through a deep belief in our actions. An understanding that what we do – when broken down – is true to ourselves. Should this belief waver, we would find ourselves questioning our actions which would result in doubt creeping into our psyche which would compound and lead to a lack of confidence. This is a dark place to be for any man and we should strive to never scoop to those depths. Strive to be more like the man you were made to be. Everyday. Strive!

  • Your clothes do not match. They go together.

  • Yes, of course you have to buy her dinner.

  • Staying angry is a waste of energy.

  • Revenge can be a good way of getting over anger.

  • If she expects the person you are 20% of the time, 100% of the time, then she doesn’t want you.

  • Always bring a bottle of something to the party.

  • Avoid that “last” whiskey. You’ve probably had enough.

  • Don’t use the word “closure” or ever expect it in life. There may still be a mortally wounded Russian mobster roaming the woods of south Jersey, but we’ll never know.

  • If your humour outshines your looks, avoid loud clubs.

  • Drink outdoors.
 And during the day.
 And sometimes by yourself.

  • Date women outside your social set. You’ll be surprised.

  • If it’s got velvet ropes and lines, walk away unless you know someone.

  • You cannot have a love affair with whiskey because whiskey will never love you back.

You stay classy,
