Ben's Virtues

Brought to you by Reason Interactive

Got Virtue?

In 1726, while on an 80-day ocean voyage from London to Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin developed a plan and corresponding chart for regulating his future conduct.

He based his plan on a chart of thirteen virtues. He committed to giving strict attention to one virtue each week — placing a mark on his chart each time he transgressed that week’s virtue. After thirteen weeks he moved through all thirteen virtues. He would repeat the course four times a year.

Use this modern incarnation of Benjamin Franklin’s original chart to improve and regulate your daily conduct. Every evening review your day. Tap the day's date to place a mark if you transgressed the week's virtue. One virtue is highlighted every week and the whole chart should be completed four times in a year. The goal is to live your days, giving strict attention to each virtue, without having to place any marks on your chart.
