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!

Here's five with some of the descriptions.

Industry:  Dedicate myself daily to the personal and professional tasks at hand.

Stand on Principle:  Never sacrifice core principles to gain popularity, favor, etc.

My body is a temple.  How I use my mind, and what I put in my body respects it.

Service:  What I dedicate my life to should lift my community up.  A good person lifts up the lives of those around them by simply being there.

CORE VALUES

1. FAITH - in GOD

2. INTEGRITY - Christian morals

3. DECISIVENESS - make wise correct decisions, then follow through with them

4. INNOVATOR - a childs imagination in adult form, thinking outside the box 

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

When can a boy learn to fight back?

Good Evening Gents,I have two young boys. My oldest is the only one in school yet. Today his mother called me in a panic because another boy slapped my son in the face at recess.
