Textbar: Ben Franklin’s Virtues
“In 1726, at the age of 20, Benjamin Franklin created a system to develop his character.”
This system was his 13 Virtues; which he practiced throughout his life. I have found that putting this information in OmniFocus feels like task manager clutter as I’m not really acting on the information, it’s more of a reminder to myself. I decided I wanted a way of simply seeing the current week’s virtue at all times, regardless of what I’m doing on my Mac, along with the virtue’s full explanation.
Save the file in a folder named “scripts” in your home folder then set the script to “osascript $HOME/scripts/Ben.scpt”; I also set the refresh interval to 10000 so it’s not constantly running the script unnecessarily.
