Don Draper: Ladies’ Man in Crisis

by GK on August 17, 2010 · 7 comments

I’m about to do something I never thought I’d have to do: give Don Draper advice on women. If you’ve watched “Mad Men,” you’ve watched one of the most fascinating characters ever to grace a TV screen. On one hand, Don Draper is an inherently unhappy man who is honest with almost no one, including himself — yet what guy hasn’t wanted […]

A Healthy Way to Face Failure

by GK on August 10, 2010 · 5 comments

This post was inspired by Rob “I’m About to Get Married” Overman, who suggested on the comments page of my post on Nice Guys that I should mention the Tripod of Stability. As far as I know, the term was coined by an entrepreneurship guru named Ramit Sethi, who wrote a best-selling book called “I Will Teach You to be […]

A letter for us guys, from Big Red

by GK on April 20, 2010 · 4 comments

I found the Esquire article below on my friend’s entertainment blog, and as I recently shared dating advice from one woman on this blog, why not another? Especially when she’s the sexiest, curviest redhead in this galaxy, and she appears in my favorite TV show. And I named my guitar after her.  Christina Hendricks, better known as Joan Holloway of “Mad Men,” […]

Baseball season is back, so it makes sense that I’m going to the bullpen on this post. I want to get some different perspectives for you folks, and the one guest blogger I had to have was Dirk Manley. He’s making his GK Shares Game debut today. I’ve been a fan of Dirk for years on the Charisma […]

On being a man

by GK on November 13, 2009 · 6 comments

I was thinking of one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies, “The Godfather,” and how it relates to what I’m teaching. No, not the line about leaving the gun and taking the canoli, though this is sound advice in general. It’s early in the first “Godfather,” when the Don’s godson complains about a movie role he might not get […]

Whew! Trying to juggle three jobs, a screenplay, a blog and a social life is giving me a triathlon-sized workout, but I wanted to make at least one sermon this week. Maybe it’s my news background, but I like to write only about topics that are current to me. And for some reason, I’ve had the same […]

The Club Survival Guide, Part II

by GK on August 7, 2009 · 3 comments

So, presuming you’ve done the right things before getting to the club, as we’ve discussed in Part I, here are some tips on what to do when you’re there: Lay the groundwork, and mingle early: If you’re a newbie, I strongly suggest getting to the club early, when the energy is lower and the music […]

Personally, I can’t stand those lame “7 ways to make a woman purr!!!” magazine headlines and their banal article contents, but I’m breaking my rule on this one. I’m talking about flirting tactics that I used to run when meeting girls several years ago but have outgrown now. Kind of like when Michael Jordan stopped hogging the ball and started […]
