Standard

Benjamin Franklin is said to have kept a checklist of virtues he hoped to attain. He didn’t nail it every day, but had a positive experience in making the effort.  

“On the whole, tho’ I never arrived at the perfection I had been so ambitious of obtaining, but fell far short of it, yet as I was, by the endeavor, a better and a happier man than I otherwise should have been if I had not attempted it.”
 Benjamin Franklin
