Become A Man's Man With These 65 Life Hacks From Goldman Sachs

Become A Man's Man With These 65 Life Hacks From Goldman Sachs
Investment banking firm Goldman Sachs has published a list of bite-sized tips designed to turn you into the ultimate man. (Apparently, a healthy dose of sexism towards women is a pre-requisite.) Photo: AMC What does it mean to be a man today? @GSElevator and NetNet’s John Carney have attempted to break down the chief rules that every man should live by. As you’d expect from Goldman Sachs, there’s a distinct Wall Street/white collar vibe to many of these pearls of wisdom — you should always tip more than you need to, for example, and your sunglasses need to be incredibly expensive. Some of the advice also seems to have come straight out of the 1960s-set TV show Mad Men (“When in doubt, always kiss the girl”, “Hookers aren’t cool, but remember, the free ones are a lot more expensive.” ) We’ve also omitted some of the more overtly US-centric tips such as the best “rest rooms” in New York.

Evil week News, Videos, Reviews and Gossip - Lifehacker The 27 Unspoken Rules Of Wearing A Suit You can’t expect to look all dapper and gentlemanly without knowing Suiting 101. Justine Zweibel / BuzzFeed The width of the tie should match the width of the lapel. It’s all about BALANCE. In general, thin lapels are more modern. Wide lapels are more old school, Mad Men -style. So choose your look accordingly. Pocket squares add an extra level of polish, but make sure it doesn’t match your tie in either pattern or fabric choice. Before you go totally conservative, remember that the pocket square is where you get the most freedom and the one place you get to add a little pizzazz to your suit. When buying an off-the-rack suit, the number one thing to check is how the shoulders fit. Tsk, tsk, John McCain. A collar gap between your jacket’s lapels and your shirt’s collar can signify an ill-fitting jacket. It’s complicated. Opt for a charcoal or gray suit over black, unless you’re attending a funeral. Dark gray is more versatile and goes with more colors. buzzfeed.com White Collar / USA Shutterstock

How to Write a Book In Your Spare Time Many people say they would like to write a book. That statement is usually in the form of “I have this great book idea”, “I’ve always wanted to write a novel” or “I will write it when I have more time.” I used to say things like that. I kept promising myself that I would write a book someday. Then I realized something important. There are seven days in a week, but someday isn’t one of them. Do It Now I’ve had several friends who have told me they want to write a novel. The best advice I ever got from another writer was this: put your butt in the chair. Stephen King said, “The scariest moment is just before you start.” Making yourself sit down and start typing is something I fight with daily, even after having written two full-length novels. Just put your butt in the chair and start working. Finding Time The most common excuse I hear is “I don’t have time.” I wrote my first two novels by finding fifteen minutes, three times each day. In the morning, I woke up fifteen minutes early. Go img

69 Awesome Brain Hacks That Give You Mind-Blowing Powers #56. You Can Reset Your Sleep Cycle With a Hunger Strike Chances are, when summer vacation or the holidays come around and you're given time off work or school, your sleeping patterns falter a little bit ("a little bit" is a phrase that here means "you play video games until the 'a.m.' and 'p.m.' dot on your alarm clock has completely lost its meaning"). How? Simple! Don't forget to compensate for the hunger madness. You might know that the main way our body regulates its biological clock (and circadian rhythm) is through light. The food-clock desires this. Imagine you're a predator out hunting for food (and Jesse Ventura), but all the regular animals you would eat are nowhere to be found. The slaying of pizza rolls has set countless new biological mornings. It makes sense -- your brain is now under the impression that if you want to survive, you can only go hunting at night. #55. #54. You already know that the answer is yes. Let's say you're an eyewitness to a bank heist. #53. #52. #51.

Will the Real Santa Claus Please Stand Up? We always think of Santa Claus as an incredibly old man—positively ancient—but the fact is, he’s exactly 150-years-old, born in 1863. Indeed, we might be thinking of Santa’s predecessor St. Nicholas, who is far older, believed to have been a Turkish Greek bishop in the 300s. But the first European winter gift-bringer is even more of a geezer, going back to ancient Germanic paganism and the Norse god Odin. When he wandered the earth, the deity disguised himself as a bearded old man wearing a broad-brimmed hat and cloak and carrying a traveler’s staff. Even in the early days, Santa had his vices. The gift-bringer showed up during the 12-day winter festival known as Yule, where it was a tradition to burn a whole tree, from bottom up. As the legend goes, Nicholas of Myra, located in Asia Minor at the time, was born a very rich man, who eventually gave away every penny he had. Top: A religious icon of Saint Nicholas of Myra, believed to be a generous 4th-century bishop in Asia Minor.

The 10 Best Games for Learning About the Stock Market Much like skydiving, playing the stock market is not an activity you want to learn through your mistakes. Fortunes are made and lost all the time by people who think (or thought) they had a handle on stock trading. If you have a few million you can afford to lose, or you're investing with someone else's money (you're a bank, in other words), by all means, jump right in. But for the other 99%, we recommend simulating the experience of stock market investing first, to learn what to do and not do with your hard-earned cash. Here are the 10 best games to help you do that. WeSeed:While some of the games on this list may be more concerned with purveying entertainment than education, WeSeed's No. 1 goal is to teach people about the stock market and take the fear out of investing.

Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change. Huang Po Bodhidharma Heraclitus Lao Tzu
