Getting Ripped vs. Getting Strong The Art of Manliness  |  Brett McKay I’m going to lay some hard truth on you here: Despite what the internet or that dude-bro at the gym might say, you cannot get both super lean and super strong at the same time.

Don’t Set Goals for Yourself—Instead, Create Systems That Make it Easy For You to Succeed Quartz  |  Khe Hy So I set about creating a system, using the project management app Trello, that would give me a bigger, birds-eye view of how I live my life. To design it, I broke it into four sections: Two focused on big-picture issues, and two that dealt with concrete changes.
