Camping for Two Weeks Without Killing Your Family

I love camping. I love playing in the mountains, exploring, seeing new country, and doing activities that toughen myself and my children. With six kids, spending time in the outdoors can be a challenge. Whining, filthy little brats tax your patience, and yet spending the quality time is a great way to see them learn and grow.

Dealing With Downtime

As most of you may have noticed by now, I like to relate my articles to things I actually do or think about in my real  life.  On Monday, I came down with a nasty stomach virus that forced me to leave work early.  I felt like shit, went home, and got some rest.   When I woke up I got to thinking about how being the type of guy I am, who handles a ton of shit on his plate daily, I can’t afford much downtime, but I’m also not a machine either.  Today I’ll cover my insights on why downtime is necessary, and how you can use it to your advantage.

No Gym? Use Your Kids!

“Strength and growth come only continuous effort and struggle.”

-Napoleon Hill

Today we’re going lighten up on the seriousness of subjects and have a little productive fun that involves your kid.  But before we start, we’re going to review the story of Milo.  No, not the gay Milo that has earned notoriety by triggering SJWs.  We’re referring to Milo of Croton, the man of immense strength said to rival that of Hercules.  Continue reading “No Gym? Use Your Kids!”

13 Daily Virtues: Introduction

This is the introduction to a multi-post series I will revisit in the future.

I recently stumbled upon a set of principles that Ben Franklin used to develop his character at age 20.  He actually developed a system and carried a card around with each of the virtues on it, along with a check box for each of the week.  Each time he disobeyed a virtue, he’d check it off for that day.  Today I’ll go over each virtue, and how it relates to our modern day, as well as red pill theory and life as a whole.

3 Of The Best Workout “Finishers” For Fat Loss

A “finisher” is simply a strength based cardio routine that you do at the end of your regular workout. Generally it’s going be H.I.I.T. oriented and makes a nice alternative to steady state boring cardio as well as burns more calories, does more for your overall body composition, and help build some stength in the process.

These aren’t meant to be done in replacement of a workout or your usual cardio session they are a nice little “extra” to help encourage fat loss and overall body composition changes that are positive. They won’t do any miracles but I’ve found they do help give you that extra edge that is often needed when getting down to lower body fat levels.

Don Your Armor

“The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals.  The struggles within yourself – the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.”

-Jesse Owens

For countless millennia, men have waged war.  We have sacrificed blood, sweat, tears, time with loved ones, and often our very lives all to ensure a brighter future for our descendants. Over the many thousands of years of bitter conflict, we adapted – no, adapted isn’t accurate…

Shut Down The World For Dinner

 

Our world gets more atomized and distracted every day.  Everyone is too busy being “entertained” with all of this nonsense to really appreciate and understand human interaction.  In speaking back and forth with some of the commenters here, the topic of getting together as a family for dinner came up. I thought about it deeper and realized that people are so wrapped up in things that don’t matter that they let their real life interactions slip.  Today, I’ll share what I do with my family and the benefits I’ve seen from creating time to just be together.

Your Levels of Influence

Inspired by part of our conversation in our first livestream, I decided that I would expand upon some of my statements, particularly those about your levels of influence.

To define your levels of influence for this discussion, I am referring to the impact your choices have on your own life, the life of your family, the community, the nation, and finally the world. Continue reading “Your Levels of Influence”
