Earlier this week I caught some of Ken Burns' new documentary on Benjamin Franklin, perhaps the most multi-faceted and wisest Founding Fathers of them all.

His was a life that pretty much sums up and embodies the word "experiment" - from his humble beginnings and making a name for himself, to his interest in science and numerous inventions (thanks Ben for the bifocals I'm wearing to type this!); his unique philosophy, writing and skilled diplomacy, as well as his participation in societal experiments, like a little 'ole thing called democracy, or more specifically, "a republic, if you can keep it."

He was also someone who evolved his opinions and values as he discovered, observed and experienced things, which to me, is a sign of true authenticity and wisdom. So the next time you have one, think of the man behind the Benjamin in your wallet and send him a little gratitude for the greatness he left behind.

How do you want to mold and shape your personal journey while you're here? How can you experiment doing something a little different or stretching yourself? What kind of culture and world do you want to live in? What kind of future do you want for your children or grandchildren? It's up to each of us to make the most out of the air that we breathe and space take up on the planet, so let this be a gentle reminder to get to work in your own lab of life and add your own unique talents, skills and creativity to the whole.

Today's PGG reflects all these themes, and the PGG Video of the Week talks about how to be the change in the world. This week's Instagram post is about what you are becoming and why it's important. And for today's PGG Vibe of the Week visualize your dream while listening to Mariah Carey's Make It Happen

**Stay tuned for some upcoming talks, and other announcements this month!**
