  1. Remember that what you do when no one is watching matters.
  2. The means matter as much as the ends, if not more.
  3. Hang in there. Character is revealed through adversity.
  4. Often we grow as much through the little things as we do through the big ones.
  5. Truth is critical. Being truthful is too.
  6. Don’t rationalize your way around honesty.
  7. Don’t blow your own horn.
  8. Don’t be falsely modest; you have amazing gifts. Just recognize that others do too.
  9. You are important, but not indispensable. The same goes for others. See yourself as a significant part of the process.
  10. Be careful what you do with your resources, gifts, time, and talents. You’ve been entrusted with them.
  11. Some of the most rewarding times in life are when you have to stand alone, even if you are uncomfortable doing so.
  12. Life is hard. Courage is essential.
  13. Never give up. Never.

    Good stuff. I’ve submitted this to StumbleUpon and hope you get some good traffic from it.

  2. Great post. I sometimes wonder if only the people who care about good values are the ones who read and appreciate reminders about them, but since one never knows whom may be influenced for good, you cannot let that keep you from writing and talking about virtue. Virtue(positive, life-affirming values) is never obsolete and is always relevant. Every new generation needs to relearn and affirm good values. Today more than ever, people need to focus on a “Morel Compass.” You are doing that. Good job.
