Advice for the Man's Man
One of 65 bits of advice supposedly from Goldman Sachs to young men. I also like:
Stop talking about where you went to college.
If riding the bus doesn’t incentivise you to improve your station in life, nothing will.
When the bartender asks, you should already know what you want to drink.
There’s always another level. Just be content knowing that you are still better off than most who have ever lived. (I forget this too often)
Don’t split a check.
Pretty women who are unaccompanied want you to talk to them.
When a bartender buys you a round, tip double.
Don’t use the word “closure” or ever expect it in real life.
Don’t ever say, “it is what it is.”
But I'd edit this: Own a handcrafted shotgun. It’s a beautiful thing.
to this: Own a high end firearm. The 20th Century was the apex of firearm design.
But I have to admit I don't know what a life hack is. Is it more than advice?
