I am trying to put together a list of things that a man should do every single day. Anything from simple, mundane tasks to more demanding and/or abstract personal development type suggestions will be much appreciated. Eventually I'd like to compile all of them and attempt to hold myself to as many of the ideas as possible.
I'll start with some basic ones that I try to live by:
-Hygiene: shower, make sure your nails are trimmed, brush your teeth, and shave (or ensure that facial hair is presentable).
-Have a plan for accomplishing whatever needs to be done in your day.
-Be informed on the news. Know what's happening in the world.
-Exercise, even if only for 15-20 minutes.
-Drink plenty of water.
-Be friendly with everyone you encounter. A smile can go a long way in improving someone else's day.
-Be mindful of when/where/with whom you use profanity.
-Stand up straight.
-Learn something new.
What do you do everyday to be a better man?
Every day/night(depending on your shift) before you go to bed, try to identify something you learned during your day. Even if it may seem trivial, no lesson is ever wasted, so making a lesson of a daily event may teach you something.
Smoke a pipe. Go to the bookies and flirt with as many women as possible.
Bookmakers...you know where one places the housekeeping money on a dead cert!
Bookmakers? I imagined a book factory.
Dead cert? Never heard of that either; sounds very Dickensian.
2 nations divided by a common language eh?
It's not quite the same in England Peter. They have shops all over the place across the pond. It's all above board and legal.
