7 things that you didn't know about Stephen Dull and the 360 Man Project

7 things that you didn't know about Stephen Dull and the 360 Man Project

This post might sound a bit self serving, but I assure you it’s not.

I just realize that there are a lot of articles on this website, but not a whole lot of information about me, and I want people who are reading this to know more about me and take a peek behind the curtain into my life.

There are two reasons for me doing this:

  • It scares the crap out of me, because I am a very private and introverted person.

  • Because it makes me more real to you

Hopefully, this will help us to become more acquainted and for you to see that I am not a robot, or just someone behind a computer spewing information that has no merit.

Thoughts on Digital Minimalism and going off the Grid: Getting off social media for 30 days

Thoughts on Digital Minimalism and going off the Grid: Getting off social media for 30 days

This past weekend, I was able to do something I haven't done in a while...

I read two books.

These were not only books that interested me, they were books that convicted me to be honest with myself and confront some issues that I have.

What I found out, might shock you.

But first, let me give you a little background.

I grew up in a very small town called Mackay, Idaho. It had a population of no more that about 500 people. I knew everyone, and they knew me. In fact, most people were very polite and would wave and say hello to each-other, neighbors would help out if you were in trouble, or needed a hand.

The 15 most important questions a man needs to ask himself and find the answer to in his life

The 15 most important questions a man needs to ask himself and find the answer to in his life

As men we sometimes believe we are meant to have have everything figured out, that we are somehow immune to not having the answer.

The truth is, we don’t have the answers to a lot of questions.

The problem is that most men, don’t try and find the answer, or even ask the questions.

Whichever it is, this article is meant to help you start asking the right questions, and to find the answers if they need finding out.

Weekly Workout For Men: Get fit Like Jason Bourne

Weekly Workout For Men: Get fit Like Jason Bourne

“At this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile before my hands start shaking.”

I remember reading the book “The Bourne Identity” when I was going through Strike Intelligence training at NMITC in Dam Neck Virginia.

I couldn’t put it down, and I wanted to be Jason Bourne, in fact, I think every man at some point in his life has wanted to be Jason Bourne.

Maybe, I’m wrong. It happens from time to time.

Slaying Dragons: A Manifesto for the men of the modern times

Slaying Dragons: A Manifesto for the men of the modern times

I have been thinking about this topic for about a week or so now.

I got to really digging in and asking myself a question: “If I could go back eight years to that day I finally woke up from the slumber I was in and finally make a change, what are the things that I would want to tell every man?”

I’m not a perfect man, and I never will be this side of life. However, I have learned a lot of things in the past few years that I see so many men still struggle with. Not only do they struggle with them, but they don’t really know what to do.

I want to break it down for men, so they at least have a path that they can walk. Once again, it might not be an exact route, or a perfect route, but it is at least a guiding light.

Why being a father is the greatest and most important role a man can have in his life: Raising strong, brave and self sufficient kids

Why being a father is the greatest and most important role a man can have in his life: Raising strong, brave and self sufficient kids

I fail as a father a lot…

In fact most of the time, I have no clue what I’m doing, but I just keep trying to figure it out the best that I can.

No one gives a father a manual on exactly what to do, or what it’s going to be like when you hold your child in your arms for the first time. Or what to do when they cry for the first time.

However, as a man, I want to see other men raise strong, brave and confident kids, and it pains me so much when I see kids neglected, mistreated, ignored and unloved. It breaks my heart.

As men, we are to be the best things in our kids life, the heroes that they deserve to look up to. Sure, we might not have all the answers or be one hundred percent perfect one hundred percent of the time, but we do need to make our best effort.

The 53 books every man must read before they turn 40

The 53 books every man must read before they turn 40

I love to read… there is no doubt about that, and in doing so, I start telling others about books that I have read. I don’t like to hoard knowledge, and if I think something is worth passing on, I do it.

On this website there are several places that you can find links to great books that I recommend, but I felt like there needed to be a list that was more definitive especially for the type of men that read this blog and listen to the podcast.

Men of substance, wisdom and maturity, need to read things that are going to give them more of that, and allow them to continue having a mind of their own and even challenge their own lines of thought.

In fact, the type of men that the 360 Man Project are attracting are highly driven men that want to grow in knowledge and be able to apply it at some point in life.

The best way to be a man is to not be afraid to be the one you were made to be

The best way to be a man is to not be afraid to be the one you were made to be

Growing up my Dad taught me that it was OK to be a man.

More specifically, he taught me:

  • It’s ok to speak my mind

  • It’s ok to get in a fight

  • It’s ok to get in trouble

  • It’s ok to fail or lose

  • I don’t have to apologize

  • Sometimes things suck, learn to work through it

  • Don’t listen and do what others tell you to do just because they told you

  • Question everything

  • ……
