Sincerity: use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly; and, if you speak, speak accordingly.
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 Sincerity.
Last week, as part of the Industry virtue, I deleted all social applications and reddit from my phone. I haven’t deleted all my accounts, just the applications. It has been a positive change. I found myself spending significantly less time on my phone. I didn’t receive a notification all week other than text messages and phone calls. It is something I am going to continue.
