Ben Franklin's Daily Schedule


Staff member
Found this video on YouTube and was impressed with the simplicity. At the start of each day Ben Franklin would ask, "What good shalI I do this day?" In the evening Franklin would ask, "What good have I done toady?" Maybe we should all ask ourselves those questions.



As long as "good" is a flexible term then the plan is a good one. Good could be productivity or profiting or learning or any number of things. Making each day count somehow, planning for it first so you don't screw it up, and reflecting later on how you did it in terms of effectiveness and how you could be even better later, all seem a good idea. Do a good day and frame it on both ends the right way. Go to bed each night a little tired and a lot satisfied should see you waking up eager to go at it again.
