Learning from the life of Benjamin Franklin

I ran across this post today, Learning from the life of Benjamin Franklin, and had to share it for two reasons. First, the lessons are timeless and highly relevant today. Second, Uncle Ben really is my uncle (actually ggggggreat uncle).Here are the highlights from the post of what we could learn from Dr. Franklin:

  1. The Importance of Continuous Education
  2. Entrepreneurial Risk Taking
  3. Focusing on Goals Beyond the Self
  4. Accommodating Divergent Needs Quietly
  5. Building Strategic Partnerships
  6. Embracing Change
  7. Think for the Long Term
  8. Shaping the American Character
