Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America (USA). Franklin was a leading author and printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat.
As a scientist, he was a major figure in the American Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. He invented the lightning rod, bifocals, the Franklin stove, a carriage odometer, and the glass ‘armonica’.
He formed both the first public lending library in America and the first fire department in Pennsylvania.
His colorful life and legacy of scientific and political achievement, and status as one of America’s most influential Founding Fathers, have seen Franklin honored on coinage and money; warships; the names of many towns, counties, educational institutions, namesakes, and companies; and more than two centuries after his death, countless cultural references.
#1. Waste Not Time
“Do not squander time for that is the stuff life is made of.” Your time is your life. If you waste your time, you are wasting your life.
I’ve never met a successful person who didn’t value their time, and I’ve never met an unsuccessful person who did.
Don’t let other people waste your time either, why is it when someone wants to “kill an hour,” they want to kill your hour as well? Protect your time, it can never be replaced, it can never be replenished, your time is your life.
Use your time wisely…it is important for your success.
I honour you!
