Navigating Relationships [for Men]

Men in Relationships

Relationships are hard. They’re even harder when you’re stupid. Many years and tears brought me to this realization. Truth is, I still may be no better at relationships than you. My best qualifications for writing about the interplay between men and women are a preponderance of boneheaded moves. Richard Feynman once said, “I don’t know anything, but I do know that everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough.” That describes how I think about women and relationships.

We Need More Masculinity in America, Not Less


There’s a disturbing trend in our country: Young men are abandoning masculinity and becoming more feminine; young women are becoming more masculine. This observation became glaringly obvious when I returned to the United States after visiting parts of Latin America and Eastern Europe. At a coffee shop in Bucharest, Romania, I was talking to a local guy about the stunning beauty of Romanian women. I expected him to tell me that he prefers American women, as most men I meet

How to use Sexual Energy for Maximum Utility

Sexual Energy

Imagine you’re in your late 50s sitting on a bar stool in Thailand surrounded by ladyboys. You’ve thrown away your marriage, family, and a decent paying job back in the States. Your face looks like an old catcher’s mitt and you’ve basically given up on life. All because you couldn’t figure out a way to subordinate your impulses to values. By now you’re wondering if the guy I just described is made up. Nope, I don’t write fiction. There’s actually

Why I Embrace Solitude (and you should too)

Trolltunga, Benefits of Solitude, Norway

I’m an experienced solo traveler. Usually, I’ll meet more people vagabonding alone. But Norway is different. Perhaps due to its high prices, remote location or combination thereof, I encountered zero rebellious hippies, counterculture losers or brainless bleeding hearts. Nobody attempted to tell me I was from “The Great Satan” or that I’d need to “check my conscience at the airport,” when returning to America (as happened on hiking trails in Patagonia & Peru, respectively). Occasionally, I’d run into a group

How Does it Feel to be Rich?

Money was coming in faster than I could count. All the guys around me were envious. Consistently stacking up cash made me feel like a boss. I remember thinking, “Is this how it feels to be rich?” None of my best friends were having success yet. They hadn’t learned how to play the game; didn’t know winning was earned. I was successful because I’d gone broke more than once. I developed patience, resilience and persistence, and finally I was consistently

6 Productivity Hacks for the Digital Age

We may be the last generation with a powerful tool like the internet, yet still possess the ability to focus the mind long enough for deep work. Today’s technology entrepreneurs believe we’re living in an “attention economy,” and you can bet they’re vying for our attention right now. If we continually succumb to the fleeting whims of distraction technology creates, our life’s most precious non-renewable resources, time and attention, will be robbed from us; our achievements forever bound for mediocrity.

My Journey into Real Estate

During my first job interview after college, the interviewer asked where I saw myself in ten years. I said, “My long-term goals are in real estate. I want to build my own little real estate empire,” to which he smirked. I wasn’t seeking a job so much as a mentor. I needed to find a place that had the greatest opportunities for learning. Practical knowledge would pay much higher dividends in the future than an employer offering higher pay but fewer
