Protect Your Family by Learning How to Fight: Part 4

Good Afternoon Gentlemen,

Building A Mental Firewall

 

If frame is our personal set of boundaries, and sense of self that we do not change, then my topic today kind of plays off of that concept.  As a leader, you get to decide what your family is subjected to on a daily basis.  If nothing else, you can mitigate the amount of toxicity they are exposed to and  you can use this added time to build a stronger relationship with your family.

The 48 Laws of Marriage: Law 6

“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining – they just shine.”

Zen and the Art of Archery

 

Bow shooting is one of the oldest, most primal things a man can do.  While I am pro firearms, a bow is something different.  There is a connection to the past as well as a bit of a soothing aspect of doing something so ancient, yet so fun.

3 Potential Side Hustles For The Busy Dad

I should start this off by saying I’m not a dad. That being said I have worked with many dads who are looking to make some extra money on the side in addition to working full time and having time set aside for the wife and family.

There has been a lot of talk of “side hustles” with cost of living increasing, mass lay offs, and just for those that want to insure against potential set backs in the future. Continue reading “3 Potential Side Hustles For The Busy Dad”

On Keeping Morale High

 

This past January, I took a new position at a very large company.  It is a high stress, very demanding job that I knew I could get through if I dealt with it and didn’t give up.  At times I was very irritable, tired, and generally wiped out.  Being a leader means keeping morale high when things are going crazy.  Today I’ll share my experience on how your behavior, mood, and demeanor affect those who look to you as a leader, and shine some light on what I did to get through the stressful times.

Eating Healthy on the Cheap

Today I’m going to discuss a topic in the same vein as one of my recent articles regarding health and nutrition.  This post was inspired through a few different interactions, but the most notable exchange was with a gentleman on Twitter who posted this: Continue reading “Eating Healthy on the Cheap”
