Actions of a Modern Gentleman

Here is my list actions that I am trying to follow on my way to be a modern gentleman, I have not succeed at all of these but are all things I plan to work on and develop over my life.
 
  1. Put your phone away, Facebook isn’t going anywhere but maybe your date is!
  2. Hold the door open and walk on the outside of the footpath

  4. Set Goals
  5. Cook your own food
  6. Eat real food
  7. Say “Thanks You”

Now you may have just read this list and got that good feeling like you have done something towards making yourself a better man. But know reading is only the first step, action must follow! I therefore challenge you to pick five items from the list and aim to improve on that in the next month. Set a reminder on your phone to remind you at the start of the each day and try to improve from one day to then next. You could even journal about it, tracking your improvement in even more detail. The main thing I want you to take away from this is to define your areas of improvement and to take action on improving your life.
