The short answer would be "whatever you want." What turns your crank and excites you? Maybe it's something that can only be learned by experience/trial and error. It's hard to monetize "sitting around on your ass while getting laid regularly and going to parties," which is what a lot of guys would probably enjoy spending their time doing. Me personally? I'm exploring a few different things at the moment. There's a zillion ways to make money on the internet, and a pretty fair number of ways to make money offline, too. I still have my 9-5 (actually 8:30-5:30) but I'm on track to have enough saved up so that within a year I can quit and do my own thing comfortably. (I'm not in a huge hurry, because I'm also using this time to learn to talk to girls, lose weight, and get into shape, along with planning for the future.) Whether I start a business here, start a business online, move to another city (or country) and start a business there... this site isn't really about entrepreneurship, per se, but it's the mentality I'm talking about. Very very few people have ever become successful and independent by punching a clock every morning, but most people still regard a "safe" 9-5 type job as the holy grail. They don't even try to think outside the box, or to look into other options.
Truthfully though, for some guys, a 9-5 is not a bad option. If you can live the lifestyle you want to live, and do the things you want to do, and can also count on a 9-5 job that you enjoy and derive satisfaction from, along with a good living, there's not a thing wrong with that. There is, however, something wrong with playing "suburban working stiff" and realizing that your life is basically over, before you want it to be. And unfortunately, that basically describes most 9-5 jobs, and the people who have them. The only thing is, most of them are so busy scrabbling to pay the double mortgage, remember their wife's birthday, and haul the kids to soccer practice that they don't have time to think about what they could have done with their life, or the places they wish they could have visited for more than a week on vacation once a year.
good post. Re my decision to go travelling for 2 months (as i'm not sure what I actually want to do with myself occupational wise), do you think this is a good idea? I still have doubts over whether travelling will help me or not. But my basic thinking behind it is i'm actually taking a small risk for once, i'm going solo to a continent I've never been. I feel it will help the shyness that I have and I may also be able to think clearer with regards to possible careers.

I have a job I love and no real debts or dependents.
However, I've definitely sacrificed a lot to get to where I am now. I've had to endure shit jobs for years to gain experience. I've had to give up what at the time could have been good relationships with women.
I've gained a lot by sacrificing a bunch of other things.
The article is good, but generic. I'm not stuck but because I was smart (and sometimes circumstances prevented me from falling into a mistake, or just pure dumb luck) but a lot of guys are stuck. I know guys who are married with kids, a mortgage, 2 dogs 2 cats, a station wagon and SUV, all payed on debt. Both adults working dead end jobs to pay the bills. Both look like they are out of a warzone.
How does a guy get out of that? I couldn't advise him, it's too late for him at that stage in the game.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
