An interesting infographic showing the daily routines of 16 famous people — from Charles Dickens to Charles Darwin.
What’s most noticeable is how varied the routines are — no two routines are even slightly similar. Balzac’s ‘orgies of work’ are a total contrast to Tchaikovsky’s fairly leisurely 4 hours of work per day.
Then there’s sleep — 7 hours seems standard, although some slept more or less. Mozart apparently managed to get by on 5 hours per night.
In the end, what the infographic really shows is that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to structuring how you work and live. Rather than pressuring yourself to live a certain way, thing about what works best for you and then play to your strengths.
