The Ben Franklin Plan: Be vs. Do

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?

I’m not sure why we tend to associate activity with right-mindedness.  I mean, isn’t it better to BE humble rather than to act humble?  To BE happy than to act happy?

Be.  Just be.

Week Eleven:  Be
