Today I'm taking a little time to contemplate my core values. I'm trying to work it out with myself right now and I thought that getting the input, ideas, and humor from T-Men and T-Vixens might be a good idea.
After writing down my values and trying to narrow them down to 5 core values, I'm not sure I have it right. So far I have (in order of importance):
1) Family (including Marriage)
4) Health and Fitness
It is really hard to narrow these down and cut away things that I also think are important, like: community, compassion, open-mindedness, progress, hope, success, and especially wisdom (although I'm not sure if wisdom is a "value" or just something that comes with time, experience, and/or Grace).
Anyway, I hope this can start a good thread. What do YOU think? What are your core values?
PS Somewhat randomly, I found myself with more time than I had anticipated for the next 3 weeks or so. Having a little extra time, I decided to try to do something more useful than watching "Orange is the New Black" or reading another WEB Griffin book. So I found The Art of Manliness' "30 Days to a Better Man" series. This task was the first article in the series. I plan to follow this along with Shugart's "28days, 14 missions". Anyway, that's where this is coming from.
