How do you teach values (I'm not talking about religion here) to kids?

Parents: I'm wondering how your kids learned things like empathy, honesty, compassion, etc. I know that setting a good example is probably the #1 thing to do, and I plan to, but did you use other ways, like reading (fiction) kids' books with them that demonstrate these things? Am I overthinking this? I want to raise a kid with a conscience...

Set the bar...at what height exactly?

Recently I became friends with a group of people that lie and act in deceitful and unfair ways towards others - so I say, they apparently find it perfectly okay. Is it right to hold your friends to your own personal standards?

How to become less of a workaholic?

I tend to work, or think about business, a lot. I'm involved in two separate successful businesses that I started. And I have ideas for more. Even all my hobbies are 'productive' activities where you're learning something new or creating something, rather than pure recreational activities like watching TV, hanging out, or reading fiction. Consequently, I haven't put enough value on my social life and meeting new people. I sometimes see that aspect of life as unproductive and not as valuable as other things I could be doing. It's not a great way to be and it's something I'd like to change. I'm looking for suggestions on how others have overcome this.
