Now that you know to apply chap stick, drink a large glass of water, and exercise for thirty minutes daily – and you also know to sit or stand with excellent posture – let’s move on to our fifth habit: clean under your nails thoroughly every morning. I want you to clean out your nails meticulously every morning as you groom yourself. Get under those nails with soap and get out the dirt. Dirty nails are a dead give away that you aren’t polished (unless you happen to be gardening or digging a grave at the time), so make a point of this. It doesn’t need to take you long–perhaps a minute.
This is the fifth day of our primer, and I think that we’re doing a great job. At the end of about a month, we’ll have the foundations for a morning routine, an evening routine, and a set of daily deportment skills. If you’re just joining us, hop back to the first primer lesson. I want you to start at the beginning and work through the lessons one by one, day by day. We’re building habits here, so shortcuts are extremely counterproductive.
