In this episode of the Art of Manliness podcast, Brett McKay speaks with Dr. Thomas Joiner about his book,Β Lonely at the Top: The High Cost of Men’s Success. They talk about the male tendency towards loneliness, even if they are somewhat oblivious to it.

This has me again returning to Austin Kleon’s depiction of ‘increased complexity‘ and the challenges associated with balance as life becomes more and more complex. As I wrote in the past, I wonder if it actually takes a family for such interventions to occur?

I wonder then if the greatest challenge we face in regards to leadership is realising we cannot do it alone and recognising those who help out to make it possible?
