Solid process especially helps reckless types

Two things you'll never see on this blog - dishonesty, and me stealing someone else's images. I can't stand stock images either. Especially when someone who claims to be a "lifestyle blogger" uses them. If you're a lifestyle blogger, that means you've lived an interesting life. Right? Therefore, you should…

Recklessness vs Overthinking

I wrote a post over a year ago about too much thinking and not enough living. Since then, my Twitter account has grown a bit. Which is good and bad. Now I got so many people replying that I miss about half of them. I imagine when it gets even…

Verbs are where it’s at

In college, I had two creative writing professors. I took creative writing seriously. I'd rank Speech and Creative Writing as the top one and two most important courses in college, respectively. Whether you like it or not, you need to learn how to talk. Humans are a social species. Like…

Of course smart men have the advantages with the babes

When I talked about finding someone younger and cuter, I called out poseurs. I can't stand poseurs, because I can't stand dishonesty. It's like, I was talking about investing on Twitter and some jackass said he never made an investing mistake. Really? Yes, some people really are simply lying douchebags.…

Breaking the incel curse

I want to be clear on something before I write the beef of this article. Everyone is naturally good at something. Everyone is naturally bad at something else. That's just a cold, hard fact of life. Sure, I was always good with the babes. But I was always really, really…

A wimp asking out a babe

"Steve" is a wimp. He likes things in life, but is too chickenshit to pursue them. When he likes a girl, he doesn't know how to approach her. When he wants something in life, he doesn't know how to gun for it and hopes it magically appears on his plate.…

Why I love cruises

I talked to one of my besties last night. He and his wife just got back from being on the road. They got to see Mount Rushmore, something we haven't seen yet. On our list. We started talking about vacations. He's not the cruise type. He thinks they'd be boring.…

Learning to read others’ motives

There are secure people. And there are insecure people. Of course, most of us are somewhere in between. But if you want to have a better life, you're best off hanging with people in the former group. I'm obsessed with getting better. I like hanging out with like minded people.…

My painting process – start to finish

I'm a simple man. I like simple things and I prefer to follow a repeatable process than wing things. You'll see me painting the same painting over and over again, with slight modifications each time. That's how you get better at things. By repetition. Bruce Lee said something like he…
