Common Sense for Boys

Find your passion and find out how to get paid for it.

Many years ago I found part of this list and loved it so much I kept it and added to it.

  1. Don’t hit girls. Treat them like princesses.
  2. Treat your mother, sisters, and wife like an equal because that is what they are.
  3. Never take her to the movies on the first date.
  4. Go for women you perceive to be “out of your league.” You’ll be surprised.
  5. Always look a person in the eye when you speak to them.
  6. Exercise makes you happy. Run, lift, and play sports.
  7. A small amount of your paycheck should go directly into your savings account every month.
  8. Comb your hair and wear clothes that fit. Don’t look sloppy.
  9. Call your parents every week.
  10. Never wear a clip-on tie. If you can’t tie a regular tie, learn how.
  11. Give a firm handshake.
  12. If you are not confident, fake it. It will come.
  13. You can tell the size of a man by the size of things that bother him.
  14. Be conscience of your body language.
  15. The only reason to ever point a gun at someone is if you intend to shoot them.
  16. Always stand to shake someone’s hand.
  17. Never lend anything you can’t afford to lose.
  18. Ask more than you answer. Everybody likes to talk about themselves.
  19. Purchase high-quality tools, so you only have to buy them once.
  20. Manliness is not only being able to take care of yourself, but others as well.

  23. Nice guys don’t finish last.
  24. Find your passion and find out how to get paid for it.
  25. No matter their job or status in life, everyone deserves your respect.
  26. One of the most important things you can learn is personal responsibility.
  27. Bad things happen; it’s your job to overcome them.
  28. Learn to work without complaining. It won’t speed things up.
  29. Never stop learning.
  30. Don’t change yourself just to meet someone happy unless that someone is you.
  31. If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room.
  32. Luck favors the prepared.
  33. Women find confidence sexy.
  34. Do whatever you want to do in life, but be the best at it.
