The Power of Problem Perception

The word “problem” has a few definitions. What most people associate with “problem” is a situation, matter, or person that is hard to deal with or understand. However, if this is you, I would challenge you to see the “problem” as nothing more than a question to be considered, solved, or answered. This perspective reframes […]

The Consequences of a War Against Men

We’ve all seen the memes, marches, protests, and videos. The theme is that men are terrible. The patriarchy must fall. Feminism is the solution. Who needs men? The future is female. Men must pay! Ban men. Men are simps. Women rule! Etc. There seems to be a war against men being waged. However, that may […]

An Advanced Decision-Making Model

You may have heard that decision-making is an art. In many ways, that is true, but it doesn’t have to be. I would argue that it can and likely should be strategic. Making informed decisions is crucial in both personal and professional realms. However, the decision itself is not all we must worry about. After […]

Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) for Muscle Knots

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) has emerged as a promising treatment for various musculoskeletal conditions. It has shown great success in conditions such as shoulder tendinopathy, greater trochanteric pain syndrome, hamstring tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, knee osteoarthritis, and so much more. However, in this article, I will share why ESWT might be an excellent solution for […]

Leveraging Game Theory in Leadership

A big part of personal or organizational leadership is making pivotal decisions. Such decisions should be informed by strategic thinking, which (ideally) is informed by extensive knowledge and information (research). Strategic thinking and decision-making are crucial for any leader, and honing these abilities is paramount. Game theory can help! Game theory is a branch of […]

Thought Leadership Lost in a Sea of Repetition

Lately, I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone! In a week spent on social media (especially LinkedIn), one can’t help but notice a multitude of self-proclaimed “thought leaders” echoing identical sentiments. This phenomenon begs the question: how can supposedly original thinkers share the exact same ideas all the time? The truth lies in plain […]

A Potential Nutritional Link in Long-COVID

I recently read an article about how researchers have developed a computational model to predict the likelihood of long-COVID, analyzing over 6,500 blood proteins. The study, published in Science, compared blood samples from COVID-19 patients and healthy individuals, identifying significant protein differences. The study suggests that specific proteins, especially those related to immune response, blood […]

Treating Heavy Beard Dandruff

Beard dandruff is a fairly common and bothersome issue for many men, often stemming from factors such as dry skin, dead skin buildup, or a condition known as seborrheic dermatitis. Sometimes, the problem persists because of confusion on how to properly wash the beard, how to use beard oils, or how much oil to use […]

The Erosion of Foundational Values is the Threat

At the core of every society lie foundational values: the bedrock principles, beliefs, and norms that define its identity and guide the behavior of its members. For centuries, these values have shaped the ethos of nations, providing a sense of continuity, unity, and purpose. This point is logical and likely makes sense to most. However, […]

Blanchard – Five Change Leadership Strategies

In his book Leading at a Higher Level, Dr. Ken Blanchard suggests that change is like “permanent whitewater (Blanchard, 2018, p. 209).” I agree. In other words, change is constant and sometimes hard to handle. Unfortunately, people tend to resist change because they are drawn toward consistency (Mounsher, 2017). Perhaps this is another clue as […]
