My new political book, Developmental Politics, is now complete and will be published by Paragon House on March 1. Now that the writing is done, I’m turning back to the work of the Institute for Cultural Evolution. In the next few weeks we will be launching an exciting new Character Development Exercise (adapted from Appendix B of Developmental Politics), which will be similar in format to our popular Worldview Questionnaire.
This new online exercise is called “Your Portrait of the Good.” The exercise asks you to reflect on your ideals and what you really care about. This 15 minute process helps you discern your highest personal virtues. By answering the exercise’s 10 questions you create a personalized chart like the sample shown above. Your finished Portrait of the Good virtues chart can then be printed-out and used as a practice tool for personal development. Thinking deeply about your core virtues is an important part of a virtue practice, and this exercise is designed to help you do just that.
We will be sending out an email announcement to our list as soon as the exercise is ready. So if you’re not already a member of our email list, please sign up now in the black area at the bottom of this page.

At last we turn the page on an ugly chapter in our history. While Biden faces difficult challenges, and while his presidency will inevitably have shortcomings, I’m rooting for his success. Biden is poised to take the first steps toward the higher cultural ground our nation needs.
