Industry: Lose no time; be always employ’d in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
As part of the Plan for Attaining Moral Perfection series, I will be living one of the 13 virtues described by Benjamin Franklin in the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. You can read how all this got started here. This week I’ll be focused on living the virtue of Industry.
Living frugally last week turned out to be a good thing. I saved a lot of money on groceries, pet care, and saved a ton by not going out to restaurants. I chose the cheaper option on just about everything. It’s amazing how many decisions there are throughout the week on where and how to spend money.
This week, I’m going to delete all social applications from my phone. I am constantly checking my phone which is unnecessary. I haven’t gone to the extreme of deleting all my accounts, but I plan to cut off everything unnecessary.
