Must-Read: Ron Swanson’s Man Tips
Every generation has its hero. And ours, without a doubt, is Ron Swanson. In an era where everyone just loves being a nerd, and the hero worship in our culture seems to point towards the ones in glasses and Star Wars T-shirts, it’s nice that we finally once again have a scotch-swilling, red meat-eating, furniture-making man to look up to.
So today we head on over to Men’s Fitness where they have a compilation of the various tips for how to live your life from the great Ron Swanson. Among two of the more important rules:
3. Stay True to Yourself
When I came to Los Angeles in the late 1990s to be an actor, everyone was trying to be Chandler or Ross or Joey, and I said to myself, If I go to an audition, they’re going to see 20 Friends wannabes, and then this weird farmer. At some point, they’re going to need a weird farmer. I’ve stayed true to myself, had a very lucky float down the river, and picked up the right fishing tackle so when I reached the spawning grounds, I was able to haul a few meals on board.
4. Do What You Love
People ask me often why I continue to make things in my woodshop, even though I’ve got a fancy acting career going on. I often tell them this: Figure out what you love to do, then find a way to get paid to do it. You’re going to be much happier being paid a little bit to do something you love, because you’re living in joy, than you will getting paid a great deal to do something you hate. You may drive a kick-ass Range Rover, but you’ll kick yourself the entire commute.
Head on over to the link to check out the rest of the tips. And then, oh we don’t know, eat a whole bunch of meat or something.
