Welcome to the 2016 Guide to Life

Conquering the wide swath of knowledge commonly left off the books.


Learning, in its highest form, comes from intentional study: dedicating mental and physical energy toward a foreign skill. You did it in college. You’ve done it in athletics. You do it at work. But some life skills rest on the periphery of daily life — you don’t cross paths with a chessboard every day. The spirit of the GP Guide to Life is to dive into the less-obvious but no-less-important skills for a man to know, all taught by experts in the field.

Over the past month, we shared a diversity of skills — from how to survive an animal attack to how to use Snapchat properly. Some lessons help you get the most out of life; some simply improve your cocktail party story. But all give you a glimpse into the wide swath of knowledge commonly left off the books, taught cordially by the GP University of Proficiency. So don your thinking caps, because class starts now.
