How to Act Like Barack Obama

Never mind politics—from the way we wear our suits to the way we relate to our wives, somehow American men are acting a little more like 44


The Move: With a gym full of U.S. troops in Kuwait looking on, candidate Obama sets up, waits a beat, then drains a three-pointer on his first shot. His reaction: "I think that's all I should do."

The Message: Have the guts to step up and take a risk. It's not grandstanding if there's a real possibility of public failure and humiliation. Just be sure you have the goods to back up that confidence. And if your skill (luck) does carry the moment, know enough not to press your luck (sorry, skill).
