| | Six Tasks Character Development
I want to kick off this forum with the first post about character. I am an Olympic Taekwondo instructor and we have five tenets that we live by, train by, and teach our students. They are:
4. Self Control
5. Indomitable Spirit
In 2005 I attended the martial arts super show in Las Vegas. I got to sit in on a seminar given by a great instructor, Tom Callos. Tom has a program that he uses with all his students, adults and kids a like, called "The Six Tasks Character Development Program."
Each student must do six tasks per day strictly to benefit others. Whether it is holding the door for someone, donating time, etc. I think this is one of the greatest programs to teach kids, and it is great for adults too. For all of you out there with children, perhaps you can consider integrating something like this into their life and then lead by example. You will be surprised at how good you feel at the end of the day!
