Resolved, 13 Resolutions for LIFE

I have just started Orrin Woodward’s new book Resolved and already the truths are leaping off the pages.  Here is a short excerpt speaking about principles in the short existence of our country.

  • The first 150 years or so focused on what could be called the Character Ethic as the foundation of success – things like integrity, humility, fidelity, temperance, courage, justice, patience, industry, simplicity, modesty, and the Golden Rule.  Without character, in other words, one can never be truly successful because the foundation of all long-term success isn’t what a person owns, but who a person is.  Regretfully, society seems to have forgotten this commonsense principle, probably because commonsense isn’t so common today.

I’m going to start drafting my resolutions.  I am sure this will be an enlightening process.
