Benjamin Franklin, in his highly influential autobiography, dedicated an entire part (of the four part book) to a method of building virtuous habits. To this method Franklin attributed all of his successes in science, in politics, in business, and in life.
Even if that high recommendation does not move you to give this method your utmost attention, I have recommendation better: try it out for yourself and see if it does not recommend itself to you.
That is what Benjamin Franklin did and he learned something from it that we should all consider: All the tricks, tips, and faddish personally traits in the world will not help you if you do not develop a balanced character through changing your habits.
In this series we will discover how this method, the “Art of Virtue” can help you change your habits and develop your character.
So stay tuned for the next post in our “Art of Virtue” series when we will take a look at how the method works!
