The Ben Franklin Plan: Attend to the moment

In honor of Ben Franklin who focused on one virtue a month each year (plus humility, which he worked on all year round on the advice of a detractor), I’m working on one life principle each week from Sunday to Saturday. Will you join me?

Every moment is an opportunity to give someone (including yourself) or something the gift of yourself.

Then why do we squander our moments as if they are of little value?

Why are we “better-dealers” with this moment, preferring instead to reminisce about moments from the past or daydream about moments to come?

Why do moments increase in value only as our lifetime decreases in years?

Multi-tasking is over-rated and ultimately inefficient and ineffective.  Attending to the moment is golden.
