Any guy who is awake is a guy who can appreciate cool stuff. Any guy who isn’t dreaming also knows that stuff alone doesn’t bring lasting happiness—on the contrary, it often brings emptiness. I say any dude that’s not dreaming because we’ve all experienced that emptiness. If we want to pretend like we haven’t, all we gotta do is look at Jay-Z whose always chasing another million. Wait—if stuff doesn’t bring happiness, why did I make this list? Purpose. The causes of people undertaking life’s greatest pursuits (like living to enrich other people’s lives rather than their own—a hard thing to do if ever there was one) will benefit from employing the best gear on the market. For example, Malcolm Jenkins (pictured above) tweeted a link to a list of the best nonprofit tools I created a couple years ago. Here’s a professional football player (who could easily buy more gear than the average American man to say the least) who wants more… he wants to make the world a better place for other people (like through his foundation) and he wants the best tools for the job. Yep. Before you proceed, check your perspective—then attack your destiny with the best gear out there.
