Account for your time.(DW #832)

The next lesson we explore from Ben Franklin’s Moral Perfection Project is that he had a detailed diary of what he did at specific times of the day.
From 6pm to 9pm, for example, his diary read: "Put things back in their places, music, diversion or conversation followed by examination of the day".
(Reading that bought a smile to my face. I could do with a time block for "putting things back in their places". How about you?)
It seems that all his time was accounted for, not just his work day. In this way, he appears to have balanced his work and his other commitments, including commitments to himself.
How about us? Do we have a set time for "diversion" or do we binge-watch Netflix after the workday is over?
