- My Address Book
- Ben Franklin's Virtues
This package makes it easy to keep a simple address book in The Journal.
In his "Autobiography", Benjamin Franklin described a simple yet powerful plan for self improvement. The core of the plan is to improve one virtue (out of a set of 13) each week. Instead of trying to improve in all 13 of the virtues at once (a nigh impossible task), you focus your efforts on improving just one. The following weeks, as you focus on the other virtues in turn, improvement in all of the virtues accumulates (hopefully). With 52 weeks in a year, you will have worked your way through the entire list of 13 virtues four times.
Ben Franklin's Virtues for The Journal makes it easy to follow Franklin's plan, and even customize it to your own purposes.
