GK on Vacation, and Self-Deprecation

by GK on November 26, 2010 · 2 comments

I am interrupting today’s turkey and pumpkin pie binge to make a temporary farewell entry. I’m two days from the vacation of a lifetime, as I’ll be spending 28 days visiting Australia, Singapore, Thailand and Hong Kong. The only reason I’m not excited about this is that I won’t be traveling with my laptop, which will […]

Keeping it real and imperfect

by GK on June 1, 2010 · 6 comments

So I might be posting here less than usual for the time being, but don’t fret. GK’s still got your back. On to today’s topic.  Even we instructors admit to […]

When you talk, be like Mike … Tyson

by GK on September 5, 2009 · 1 comment

As in my last post, I’ve got an unusual source of blogging inspiration. I recently watched a documentary that I surprisingly loved, and I can’t think of a more powerful example of talking about yourself, one component of the Big Four.

A word about relating to her

by GK on June 19, 2009 · 3 comments

It’s mailbag day, boys and girls. Today’s question is brought to me by Jude, who shares a problem he’s having lately: telling a woman how he can relate to her: “Lately my game has been doing good except for one little thing: relating in emotion. I do get closes though but after doing some (open-ended questions) there […]
