BEN FRANKLIN’S GOVERNING VALUE
Sometimes a mission statement can be a concise list of values, defined in your own words. Read through
Benjamin Franklin’s list of values and definitions to see if they spark any ideas for your own mission statement.
Temperance: Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.
Silence: Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.
Order: Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
Resolution: Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.
Frugality: Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing.
Industry: Lose no time; be always employed in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
Sincerity: Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly.
Justice: Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.
Moderation: Avoid extremes; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.
Cleanliness: Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, clothes, or habitation.
Tranquility: Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
Chastity: Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another’s peace or reputation.
I’m just saying.., we can learn from so many different people – even those who are long gone. Now, you don’t have to agree to everything here on this list, but you’d have to agree that knowledge lasts forever. Once you own it, it can never be taken away. I’m so thankful that I’m a great listener. I will give you a chance to express your thoughts to me – even if I don’t agree with you.
