Strive to live a good life....


Consider the things that Confucius says constitute perfect virtue: gravity: being serious about all the right things; magnanimity: being gracious at all the right times; earnestness: being serious for all the right reasons; sincerity: being true to all the right things.; and kindness: caring at all the right moments.  Now imagine how professional you would be if you were to find ways to incorporate them into your life?  You wouldn’t have to be perfect at any one of them: just to know and understand what they are, to work diligently towards achieving them, to fine-tune what you do to stay on track pursuing them, and to adjust when you got off course with any of them.  Find people who have these virtues and learn from them; surround yourself with people like that and grow your awareness of those virtues, and develop your life around the kind of virtues that will make you a better person.  Adopt these five virtues to be a better person today.

Confucius (551–479 BC): Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher
