Guest Post | Seasons

Like seasons in a year, Daniel Levinson, author of ‘The Seasons of a Man’s Life”, points out that men tend to develop along a certain developmental timeline as well. He goes on to say that there are four seasons of a man’s life: spring, summer, fall and winter. Though the seasons are not chronologically based, … Continue reading

The Peacock Effect | Redefining The Middle-Aged Man

We need a broader definition of what being a man is. I remember a female friend of mine many years ago trying to figure me out. She came to the conclusion that I was either a player or gay. I didn’t fit into her predetermined box of manliness. Why? Because I dressed well. Can you … Continue reading

Day In | Day Out

This is by far some the best life advice I’ve ever heard. It’s the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College by David Foster Wallace. It’s brilliant. I had to share it.

OMG! How old is Denzel?

Guest Post: 10 Days and counting…

10 days and counting. 10 days until I reach a milestone in my life that I haven’t really thought about until recently. 10 days until I reach the ripe old age of 40. As a young man, I had big plans for my life, the NBA just wasn’t in the cards, Bill Gates never returned … Continue reading
