Benjamin Franklin’s Schedule

Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin FranklinBenjamin Franklin was not just one of America’s Founding Fathers, he was also a writer, scientist, inventor, printer, politician, postmaster, statesman and civic activist. He invented electricity, the lightning rod, bifocals and the Franklin stove. Phew, right? He was also a nine-to-five man who took long lunches, had evening diversions and got seven hours of sleep. Clearly, Franklin was not just an ingenious productivity machine, he knew how to use his time well.
