To be good, be a mensch

That’s my goal.

I’ve written that I tend to align myself with sattvic characteristics.

Though there is a less religious take on being good, one without rules.

Simply, be a mensch.

What’s that mean?

Leo Rosten, the Yiddish maven and author of The Joys of Yiddish, defines mensch this way:

Someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character. The key to being “a real mensch” is nothing less than character, rectitude, dignity, a sense of what is right, responsible, decorous.

That’s taken from this post by Guy Kawaski. Check that out for some more guidance.
