Podcast #683: How to Think Like a Renaissance Man

Ironically though, this great creative flowering was spurred by men who were educated under a system that, by our modern lights, can seem rather rigid and rote.  My guest today unpacks this seeming paradox. His name is Scott Newstok, ...

The 6 Types of Grit (And How to Develop Them)

We all want to be better than we are today.  And that often requires pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone, even when you don’t feel like it. It requires getting back up and trying again and again when you fail. It requires sticking with a path long enough to see it through.  In short, becoming a better man requires grit .  The concept of grit has become well-known in recent years, due to the efforts of psychologist Angela Duckworth, who has spent her career trying to figure out w...

Podcast #672: How to Do the Impossible This Year

There are goals in life that seem very attainable. And then there are those which seem practically impossible — rising out of poverty and/or a traumatic childhood, becoming a bestselling writer, deadlifting 500 pounds. With impossible goals the odds seem long, and it isn’t clear how to get from point A to point B. My guest today has spent decades figuring out the roadmap for making that journey.

Sunday Firesides: One Habit a Year to a Better Man

Maybe you’ve made some resolutions for the year to come. Or perhaps you’re not into New Year’s resolutions, per se, but nonetheless have a longstanding list of goals that regularly runs through your head. Either way, there’s a very strong chance that, twelve months from now, you won’t have accomplished any significant personal change.  Some will say that’s because you didn’t make your goals specific enough. Or small enough.  But it’s likely just because you had goals, plural. Benjamin F...

Plutarch’s 13 Signs for Gauging Your Growth in Character

In most areas of your life that you seek to improve, there’s an external metric you can look at in order to see if you’re getting better.  Your pants get looser as you lose weight.

There isn’t really a hard metric that you can point to that shows that you’re becoming more virtuous. And without some sort of metric, it ca...

How I Learned to Be Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

 Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Ben Aldridge.  Several years ago, I found myself in a dark place. I was struggling immensely with severe and debilitating anxiety and felt that I was losing control of my mind. I was having back-to-back panic attacks and honestly thought that I was dying. It was a truly terrifying experience and I felt overwhelmed with fear. My lack of education on mental health at the time meant that I didn’t understand what was happening to me. This made everything e...

95% of people say that they’re self-aware. But only 10-15% of people actually are.
