WHY HIGHLY LIBERAL, OPEN, DISAGREEABLE MEN HAVE THE WORST LIFE OUTCOMES

Statistically, these men fail most. Men build cultural structures of values and set these standards on one another. Competence demands reformation and building. Seeing the cracks in the structure and constantly attacking them makes this man an enemy of everyone, not a valued asset, especially if the disagreeable trait includes neurotic withdrawal, a common pairing …

HABITS, GOAL EXECUTION, & WEIGHT LOSS

UNSURPRISING PERSONALITY DEFICITS

Harvey Weinstein’s behavior makes my stomach turn. It deserves punishment, and Hollywood needs reform, but I leave that discussion for others. My intention is to adjust our expectations of leaders and normalize understanding of low-functioning character deficits.

HOW TO CONQUER FEAR QUICKLY

HOW CHARACTER FORMS NEUROSIS

CHANGE & GROWTH: A MEDITATION

“Turn Away” from Beck’s award-winning album“Morning Phase” is an exceptionally powerful ode to change and personal growth. For the last year, I’ve listened to it every night to compel myself to be different.
