I spent a week following Benjamin Franklin’s daily routine — 3 years later, there’s an aspect of it that I still do every day

  • Personal finance blogger J. Money, of BudgetsAreSexy, tried following Benjamin Franklin’s daily routine for a week. 
  • He has since adopted the practice of waking up early, and has woken up between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. for the last three years. 
  • He’s discovered it’s effective for him — he’s more productive in the mornings, he enjoys having quiet time before his kids wake up, and he appreciates life more. 
  • While waking up early may not be for everyone, J. Money recommends trying it for a week to see if it fits your lifestyle. 

Any of you around when I tried living like Benjamin Franklin for an entire week? Failing miserably at half his routine, but rocking the 5 a.m. wake-ups?

I don’t know how the man did it (oh wait, yes I did — he never took care of his kids or house), but I give him credit for being completely obsessed with his trade. And hey, the world got some decent benefits out of it, eh?
