Ongoing premise — The world is set against young men. They need to be smarter and wiser than others. Here is another piece of advice
Young men can evolve at a good rate. The world is still young, there are many things that can be learned. It is good for a young fella to take it all in.
At the same time, the present world is evolving quickly also. What was true a few years ago is not necessarily true today. The future will bring more changes, many of them not so good.
This dual set of evolution might be confusing to a young man. He might start heading down a path that will not leave him a good place later.
Periodically, a young man should step back and revaluate where he is and where he is going. When doing this, advice from other men is usually helpful. Not just age cohort friends, but older men also. Many perspectives can help one see where one is and where one might go,
But doing this should not necessarily stop when a man gets older. This should be a lifelong process.
