Today's task requires us to define our 5 core values: http://artofmanliness.com/2009/05/31/30-days-to-a-better-man-day-1-...

Feel free to share what your core values are. If you think they're too personal and don't want to share, that's completely fine. But still let us know whether or not you completed the task.

Look forward to reading your core values!

5. BALANCE - Must be able to balance everything WORK/PLAY, SAVING/LIVING 

Well, here's what I got.

Some of the wording is plagiarised from men/actors/writers who said it better than I ever could.  The message is there though

  1. Family before everything

  3. Never cowardly nor cruel
  4. My word is my bond
  5. Stay healthy, stay strong

I realize I'm a few years late to the party, but better late than never, right? So hear are my core values

1) Be honest... almost to a fault.
