fear makes better

if i can pick one attribute in my life, it's fear.

think about it, fear of never dating someone hot forced me to the gym, look at my abs and my humble boy.

fear of my previous job, forced me to write up a great resume, and now am at a top 3 bulge bracket.

fear of reading articles from 45 year old men about regretting not doing it sooner, led me to come out.

it's social, bro

if you want to be the ring leader of your PE group, don't study financial data/history, study social psychology.

the top

it's a scary, competitive world out there. keep your guard down.

i love my job

they say to go in a working field that you love. wrong.

love isn't as natural as people make it. 90% of the time it's manufactured, and can be applied to anything, work included. go into a field that pays well, and lie to yourself every day that you love it. in time, you'll genuinely be happy about your choices, while the rest continue to wonder if there's anything better out there, usually their entire lives.

the best always bit

i wasn't oppressed this whole time after all. i was just avoiding freedom, because i didn't know how to handle her.


art saves. when defined, fades.


find someone worth spoiling. it makes your work effective and efficient; and you now have a god that everyone speaks of.


embrace your misery, but keep your humour.

90% off life is (should be) preparing for something. so enjoy your own company, and whistling while you work.


i like to tell lies that become true - haus

the well-rounded, HA!

they say it's best to grow up well-rounded. FUCK YOU. i made it to where i am now because i AVOID the middle at all cost. i am an extreme right-wing, bear hunting conservative when it comes to money, and i am extremely left-wing socially, heartily, and sexually.

if you are in the middle, you are perpetually dead, and falling.

no, i do get it. he's an asshole, alright. but you have two choices now. do you want to spend your life fighting an asshole, or enjoying yourself, your money, your friends? -jm

pretending to like your job is 70% of it. the other 30% is showing up on time. -salma
hi, my name is srilang and i'm new to this country. oh, i live on west 19th for now. -sl
work. competition. frienemies. 90% of our day forces us to be on our toes, watchful and defensive. in that 10%, unwind. listen to queen and country, they don't have to know, though better if they do. -ej

making money is the best art - andy
the more you think about something, the more it loses it's importance.
spend your whole life preparing for the black swan. it will give your life meaning and beauty, whether it comes or not.

self-fulfilling prophecy

life is nothing but one big self-fulfilling prophecy.


your best foot is the only one that matters. it should be in your cerebral cortex when you wake up, throughout the day, and when you go to bed. - dolly

on manhattan resilience

in youth, enjoy all aspects of it's exciting energy - celebratory or destructive, effects taken and unquestioned.

mid-career, shun it for objectivity's sake.

as an exec, revisit/live it's re-surging pulse from your youth - this time, maximize it's energy to your social, verbal, physical, and fiscal glamour.

'i feel like [new york] just swallows you up and spits you out' - whit

damn right, keep up.


i love being oppressed and tied to my studies and responsibilities. it gives me money, and saves me from the depression that comes with boundless & timeless freedom. -mj

learn to sell your soul, daily

your soul; a very small price to pay for $3 million a year, different cities, and locally flavored orgies every morning.

c'mon, just dye blonde - ala warhol, madonna, and gaga.

embrace misery, it sets you free. stop running from it. 3 hour work intervals.

put down the blinders. dabble in different circles/lob. you'll pick up skills in each, helping you in each task.

entry to the street: use visions of morning orgies as the carrot, but always understand real happiness comes from simple doings.

too much of the former, you will get swept up in the vacuum and lose it all in a day. too much of the latter, and you'll have nothing to lose, to begin with.

i will come back to you

i realize the very thing i ran from and tried to deny about myself as a child, is the ultimate source of power and perseverance i tap into as an adult. the feeling never changed, it's just interpreted differently, now to my advantage.

2 rules to life

1. 8.5 hours of sleep every night
3. this is easy.
2. finish all work by 7:45pm, only personal affairs after
4. this is easy.

subtle is best

listen to the same music as your boss. it puts you on the same wavelength, relieves awkward pauses, allowing you a more productive, flowing day.

firstly, always a bank mentality

enjoy mundane tasks of cleaning and checking of transactions, understanding the peace of knowing where you fiscally stand, is real 'happiness,' whereas mainstream 'happiness' is short-lived, and has double-time negative response.

low-interest borrowing, secured high-interest lending.

precise, efficient, clean, and never too greedy.

i'm just okay

reach for contentedness & stability, and you will find happiness in your journey.

reach for the perfect happiness, and you will be met with misery.

accept your misery, and happiness may greet you, who will then introduce you to contentment.

use your assets

bet on the anticipation, not the reality.


'the anticipation of reward is more important for memory formation than is the receipt of reward.' -ed

sardonic empathy

people dealing.

direct to the heart chakra (stephan), with a hint of j humor (ego deflation, never blatant mockery)


smiley face

never be concerned about being pegged as a square or unhip.

money overrides all, the hippest of the hip will invite you're slightly out of shape, rich ass.

the closing

all the mental psyching up and quote banter as seen on this page, will never make you do what's needed.

i've realized there is only one real way one achieves. inspiration now is a dime a dozen, flip on to the biggest loser; they're still fat.

only when you truly hate and are disgusted with the situation and environment you are in, will you begin to kick and scream to claw you're way out to greener pastures. it's okay to enjoy your successes, but continually focus on one aspect you can't stand about your environment so you can kickstart yourself to go up another level.

i'd like to think that waving the carrot in front of your face works; but one doesn't really know how good the carrot tastes until you actually obtain and eat it. therefore it's value is automatically grossly understated, directly in proportion to how much you want it.

in essence, the push mechanism (from provincial, abhorrent surroundings / or the fear of being mediocre, for the well-off crowd) is more effective than the pull mechanism (hanging pictures of mansions around you), the latter being touted as gold by conventional self-help and parenting books.

see you at the PH level. ciao.

healthy to be unhealthy

it's imperative that you find some alone time in the day (morning bathroom stalls work), and privately curse the shit out of everyone you work with; not just the competition, but your assistants as well. make faces, be stupid and unaccountable. you have to let it out, to offset the 'normalcy' you presume amongst your co-workers and clients the rest of the day.

this tip assumes you work in even the slightest competitive, backstabbing, and semi-stressful field.

this childish act holds no logic, yet unwinds your spirit in quicker time to any sort of cerebral pause and logic-based questioning.
