I’ve often thought not only about the measure of success, but the path to it.
Where to begin? How to dress?
Is there a secret formula to success, well trod by preceding inventors, artists, politicians?
Well, apparently not. When it comes to their schedule at least. Perhaps it was innovation and hard work that propelled these people to influence but, according to this chart, it definitely wasn’t their daily routines. Each was unique in the hours they slept, ate, worked creatively.
Honoré de Balzac was asleep from 6pm until 1am, then would wake up to work through the early hours of the morning. Charles Darwin worked about half as much as Voltaire. So, maybe success is more in the outfit…? Hahaha.
I suppose the conclusion here is that the routine of success is distinctly individual?? I’m not sure yet what my perfect success schedule is… Do you have one?
Mine might just be a good night’s sleep.
