2016 Alliances & Partnerships

Sometimes, it isn’t the best thing to be the smartest person in the room.

Sometimes, it isn’t the best thing to be the smartest person in the room.

This is where consulting, business partnerships, and other sorts of teamwork come into play.

Even when you have the right idea for yourself, your consideration of the situation may be limited by what you know about yourself.. The personal limitations you know you have.

Adding one or more other people to the equation does way more than double your abilities now that there are two people involved.

The other person comes to the table with his or her life, personal, and business experience, none of which YOU HAVE! 😀

The other person comes to the table with equipment that they spent their money on that you didn’t.

I’ve seen the future… It’s creating alliances and partnerships in 2016. Continue reading “2016 Alliances & Partnerships”

How Long Should You Date Someone You Can’t Stand?

The question for today is how long you think you should continue to date someone you don’t like as a person.

I’ve had this interaction many times in conversations with dudes:

Dude: “My girl gets on my last nerve.”

Me: “Dump her.”

Dude: “…………………………….. Nah.”

I’ve had *THIS* interaction many times in conversations with chicks:

Chick: “I broke up with my boyfriend because I didn’t like XYZ that he said/did.”

Me: “……….. Oh.”

So the question for today is how long you think you should continue to date someone you can’t stand. Continue reading “How Long Should You Date Someone You Can’t Stand?”

Step Backward to Move Forward (Selective Neglect)

Whether you’re a 9-5’er or a freelancer, you want to have time set aside to learn new things.

I always advise people to leave themselves time for self-improvement.

What I mean by this is that whether you’re a 9-5’er or a freelancer, you want to have time set aside to learn new things.

This is because if your skills remain the same while your industry improves, you get left behind.

It’s also because you can’t change directions if all of your time is spent going in your current direction.

If you find yourself in a situation where you feel stagnant, or if not that, you feel like your current situation is hindering your ability to move forward, the solution may be to step backward instead of trying to maintain what you currently have going on and add to it.

Girls & Gimmicks

In a perfect world, women would feel like hooking up with you without your having to trick them into it.

Perfection

In a perfect world, women would feel like hooking up with you without your having to trick them into it.

If you don’t live in that world, gimmicks come in handy.

The trick is to not overdo it, and knowing when to STOP using gimmicks and start being yourself. Continue reading “Girls & Gimmicks”

Difficulty Levels

Before you accept dating advice from some dude, make sure you’re aware of what level of women he has experience with and is referring to.

Every time I see a picture of this gal I know, she’s someplace new.

Not just new, as in “I haven’t seen a picture of her in that place before”, but new as in “I’VE NEVER HEARD OF THAT CITY OR COUNTRY EVER BEFORE IN MY LIFE!” new.

It’s pretty annoying. 🙂 [yet, simultaneously fun and interesting]

I mean, I’ll click on her picture and it’ll say the location is West Mxyzptlkstan or some nonsense, and I’m like “not again! :/”

I was thinking about her the other day and started considering the difference in difficulty levels in kickin’ it to women.. or perhaps, not kickin’ it, because anybody can just start running their mouths and hope something good happens, but rather difficulty levels in IMPRESSING women, or at least remaining in the pocket and not getting blitzed out of the game.
