Fan Mail Friday #26 | Receding Confidence and Short-Term Ethics


science / science 145 Views comments

Welcome to Fan Mail Friday #26! No jibber-jabber, just a short show where we answer Art of Charm listener mail and give out mini-lessons for the weekend!

In this episode:

  • What do you do when balding causes more than your hairline to recede?
  • When is the most ideal time in your life to become an entrepreneur?
  • Like practicing martial arts, picking up social dynamics skills won't turn you into a different person -- just a more confident one.
  • Learning to English like Jordan may be hazardous to your job interview. (We recommend shadowing dialogue from Three's Company and Baywatch reruns.)
  • Even if it gets you a dream job in the short term, telling a lie on your resume or unjustly badmouthing competition may haunt you for decades.
  • What's the benefit of information binging -- like listening to an Art of Charm podcast marathon or reading 10 books on self-improvement over the weekend -- if you can't apply everything you learn?
