It’s Time– Let’s Be a Grown Man

We are officially half way through 2014 and I hope by now you are on the straight and wobbly.  This year, we have covered everything from car care, home care, to skin care.  Let’s talk a little bit more about your care.  Moreover, the things you care about.  Some things you are holding on to that have outlived their usefulness to you and where you are trying to go.  I thought I could use a bit of help before writing this post.

I was searching online on, and ran across this article.  I was so tickled at his hard-core honest truths, that I had to come back and share some of these with you.

Some of these are full of common sense, but then again, sense is not that common.  For example, I love this:

When people don’t invite you to a party, you really shouldn’t go.
 And sometimes even when you are invited, you shouldn’t go.

Yet, there you are, looking like Bieber in the corner after too much Molly. You are too old for this nonsense- stop it. Here are a few other items he suggested you should also stop.

  • Stop talking about where you went to college.
  • Stop dressing like you work at Starbucks. Rebel from business casual. Burn your khakis and wear a suit or jeans.

  • Stop staying out all night, what are you a vampire? Never stay out after midnight three nights in a row … unless something really good comes up on the third night.

  • Stop making decisions based on what your penis wants. Never date an ex of your friend.

  • Stop kidding yourself. If riding the bus or bumming rides doesn’t incentivize you to improve your station in life, nothing will.

  • Stop being indecisive. When the bartender asks, you should already know what you want to drink.

  • Stop looking like you just robbed a convenience store. If you perspire, wear an undershirt.

This is some pretty sage tips.  But before I go, here are some tips that he suggested you start doing.

  • Do 50 push-ups, sit-ups, and dips before you shower each morning.
  • Buy expensive sunglasses.  Superficial? Yes, but so are the women judging you. And it tells these women you appreciate nice things and are responsible enough not to lose them.
  • Eat brunch with friends at least every other weekend. Leave Rusty and Junior at home.
  • A glass of wine or two with lunch will not ruin your day.

I look forward to hearing back from you on what you think or do you have some great tips to share.
