The Benjamin Franklin Routine: How it works
To the left, you will see an image of Franklin's daily routine. It's pretty self-explanatory, but it has some structured aspects worth pointing out:
Franklin asks the following questions:
- The morning question: "What good shall I do this day?"
- The evening question: "What good have I done today?"
The morning question is a focusing an alignment question, while the question at the end of the day is focused on reflection. Each question has its purpose.
Ben Franklin also time-boxed his work, which is another powerful strategy and can help you be more productive.
