Evening Routine | How Successful Entrepreneurs Spend Their Nights
What you do before you go to bed is crucial for the way you feel the morning after
In a world full of technology it’s pretty easy to lose the idea of what time it is and get caught up in the next episode of GAME OF THRONES or watch another YouTube video.
Yes, it’s fun!
But it takes a lot from you.
Nowadays everyone is trying to do more and more and more.
There is nothing wrong with that.
But with this, we take time from our sleep and add them to our working hours. Reducing your sleep time from eight hours to six is probably ok, but let’s be honest – six hours of sleep is a luxury in the 21 century.
It’s proven that sleeping less than six (6) hours actually makes you worse at your work, and if you experience some kind of extra frustration it can lead to health issues.
So, when work is so important to us, there is nowhere better to look for answers on how to do it, than the routines of one of the most successful people on planet Earth.
It really depends mostly on you – what your occupation is, how you do your work, how people you work with are working, etc.
First on the list:
1. BILL GATES
There is little to no chance you have not heard of him. The Microsoft co-founder and one of the richest people on Earth enjoys a nice book before sleep. He reads everything from biographies to philosophy.
In an interview, he shared that seven hours of sleep is optimal for him, and for creativity.
You can head over to his blog and see all the books he has read and reads – booklist.
2. ELON MUSK
Elon Musk is one of the – if not the most – visionary people on the planet. The founder of SpaceX, Tesla and the creator of PayPal is the type of person who loves to bury himself in work.
If you are someone who hates going to bed with tech all around him, then this is not for you. When he goes to bed, his smartphone is just a reach away and it’s always on. He is getting around six hours of sleep, which is to lower border.
3. BARACK OBAMA
The former president of the United States of America – Barack Obama left the Oval Office on 20th January 2017 and the accomplishments that he made during his tenure landed him on a list of the best presidents in U.S. history.
Being the president of one of the biggest nations in the world is not an easy task. Stress filled days, not enough sleep, and regularly having to stay late night working. It’s not uncommon for the president to stay as late as 2 a.m. working
When having the time he enjoys reading a nice book or watches a TV show. For how many hours he sleeps, it really depends on what is going on in the world.
