"Failing to plan is planning to fail."
A founding father of the United States, Benjamin Franklin was also a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. Franklin also earned the title of “The Father of Time Management” because of a structured and productive daily routine he followed. Franklin’s propensity to plan allowed him to amass an impressive body of work over his lifetime which includes inventing the lightning rod and bifocal lenses, title of first United States Postmaster General, and role as one of the five delegates selected to draft the U.S. Declaration of Independence. It is interesting to note that Franklin had trouble following his schedule because of life’s many daily unseen circumstances. The goal here is not perfection, it is to stay the course.
