Becoming more productive is actually incredibly simple. You don’t have to increase your brain power or do anything too difficult, you just have to shift the way that you approach tasks and goals.
Unfortunately, however, there’s a ton of bullshit advice out there when it comes to scheduling, and it’s hard to know what works.
Trust me—I’ve tried all of it, and most of it doesn’t work, but there’s a few gems that I’m going to share with you today. If you properly implement this advice into your life, I guarantee that you will be more productive, happier, and have a much more fulfilling life.
A lot of guys wonder what the key to success is. Persistence? Hard work? Or maybe being decisive? Well, these things are all great, but there’s one key to success that’s even more fundamental than these.
It’s what will make persistence easy. It’s what will enable the hard work. And without it? You won’t ever be decisive. Despite the incredible impact of this one little key to success, it’s actually very simple. Do you know what it is?
It’s your ability to stay present to the moment, and to focus on the process, not on the results. In other words, it’s learning to enjoy the journey.
Anyone who’s been involved in the “PUA community” recently knows about the phenomena of shit tests.
Shit tests are snide little remarks that women throw at you to test you.
Depending on how you react, she’ll either become completely disinterested with you, or she’ll take note and start to view you as an alpha male.
Most guys fail these tests from women miserably—and they have piss poor results with women to show for it.
Once you know how to pass them, however, you’ll notice that your success rate with women will sky rocket.
Most of the people in the world have very low energy levels, but everyone wants more.
More energy means you can work harder, longer, and faster. It means that you can accomplish things that you only dreamed of. Maybe you want to start a business, but just don’t have the energy.
Or maybe you’re trying to get in the habit of working out, but the energy just isn’t there. Either way, you need energy if you want to function at a high level in life.
What most people don’t realize is that energy is actually very much psychological—and there’s 3 very common “energy sappers,” that 99% of people have without even realizing it.
This list is a compilation of the very best books that I’ve ever read. These are some of the best books for men in existence.
They range from books on psychology to bodybuilding to masculinity, but they’re all incredibly valuable and we can learn a lot from them.
I’m an avid reader—I try to read a book a day (keyword: try), so I’ll be periodically updating this list with quality literature.
This list has already undergone 4 separate updates, and I don’t expect it to stop growing any time soon. Who knows, maybe one day it’ll hit 100 books.
If you have a suggestion, be sure to leave it in the comments section down below! I read all of the comments.
Now, without further ado, here are the best books for men of all time:
I’ve always wondered if it’s possible for you to increase your IQ. Neuroscience is a very interesting field to me, and I’ve gone on quite the journey trying to improve myself. I’ve tried modafinil along with other smart drugs, I’ve tried playing chess, and I’ve even delved into the world of psychedelics.
Some people claim that diet is the secret to increasing your IQ. Others claim that it’s about nootropics or exercise, and some even claim that your IQ is fixed by your genetics. Despite this, there’s a lot of evidence to show that you actually can increase your IQ…and you can do it very quickly.
A while back I discovered a very simple, effective game that can increase your IQ by up to 2.75 points an hour—you won’t be able to play it for more than 15 minutes though, because it’s extremely difficult.
Regardless, this game is one of the most effective tools that I’ve used to increase my IQ, and I believe that if you use it as well, you’ll reap massive rewards.
Starting Strength can be one of the best workout routines for beginners, so if that’s what you want, then look no further.
I know how frustrating it can be, searching around, trying to figure out where to start. There’s literally a million different “gurus” saying that you should do this, or that you should do that. It’s incredibly confusing.
I was in the same boat about a decade ago, and I wasted years following stupid workout routines that don’t work.
Most people will tell you to do a split, but in my experience most people also don’t know what they’re talking about.
In my nearly 10 years of fitness experience, the best workout routine for beginners is Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength, due to its sheer simplicity, effectiveness, and time-efficiency.
“How do I become an alpha male?”
Plenty of men, after being exposed to the manosphere, ask themselves this question…but it isn’t entirely accurate.
There’s a billion articles talking about “Top 10 Alpha Male Behaviors,” or “Signs You’re a Beta Male,” and I’m here to tell you it’s all bullshit.
Yeah, most of it is bullshit. Being “alpha” or “beta” has NOTHING to do with your behavior, and everything to with your BELIEFS.
If this sounds confusing to you, then read on.
Finding a good bulking diet when you’re broke as a joke can be REALLY difficult. Bodybuilding foods can cost an arm and a leg.
I remember when I first made my bulking on a budget meal plan. I was a broke college student trying to save money.
Despite my lack of income, I was determined to get big—it wasn’t a “want,” it was a “must.” I wanted to bulk up… and I wanted to do it fast.
So, I decided to create the most calorie-efficient, cheapest, clean bulking diet possible—and I succeeded.
On just $100 a month, I was able to successfully bulk up for the winter, putting on a solid 20 pounds of muscle. Plus, all of my lifts went up.
So, if whether you’re a broke college student, an entrepreneur trying to put all your money into a business, or just a guy who doesn’t want to spend a lot of money on food, here’s the best clean bulking diet for you.
It’s no secret that having a chiseled jawline makes you more attractive to women. In fact, studies have shown that a man’s jawline is the number one determinant of whether or not a man’s face is attractive to the opposite sex.
Every single sex symbol out there, whether it be Brad Pitt or Taylor Lautner, has a chiseled jawline.
There’s just no way around this: if you want to turn heads, and have women approach YOU, you need to develop a chiseled jawline.
Yes, you should still learn how to talk to girls, how to dress well, and how to be more confident to attract women…
…but why not make things easier on yourself, and maximize your looks? It’s pretty easy to do, too. You can easily get a more chiseled jawline in a month.
