Ben Franklin lived an extremely busy lifestyle and kept a daily schedule. But if you look at his schedule, you see that he had only six blocks of time scheduled each day:
- Morning for getting ready for his day (shower and breakfast, personal study, and prepare for work) Note his morning question.
- Late morning for work
- Noon for review of current projects and to eat lunch
- Afternoon hours for work
- Evening hours for dinner and rest and wrapping up the day. Again, note his evening question.
- Night hours for sleeping (you need more than Franklin's seven hours).
Carve out time for your readings, assignments and just thinking about the content (not at the same time). Make SURE you get enough sleep each day; it's how your brain organizes and stores the stuff you learned during the day.
Limit your time on social media- it's a wasteful distraction. Do spend time enjoying your relationships with family and friends.
