  • Habit is not mere subjugation, it is a tender tie: when one remembers habit it seems to have been happiness.

  • Sooner or later, the great men turn out to be all alike. They never stop working. They never lose a minute. It is very depressing.V.S. Pritchett

To Steve.
He actually slept from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

I personally think that taking care of yourself is huge with productivity. How clearly you can think and how much energy you have greatly impacts how much work you get done. If you get more sleep or eat healthy you will actually increase the amount of work you can do Pushing yourself to hard and putting stress on yourself can actually long term cause you to lose productivity. You have to have balance in life.

What good have I done today?

The good news is...hard work pays off. I was beginning to doubt that a little bit :)

good blog. Thanks!

I notice he did not have a 45 minute commute each way. Thank goodness for progress.

Bear in mind this is what Franklin aspired to, it is not what was carried out on a daily basis.

I just have to figure out how to get a two hour lunch break . . .

Now that Leno is on earlier, maybe I can finally become a genius like Franklin!

Steve, actually he slept from 10-5. A good 7 hour sleep. A two hour lunch break makes a lot more sense than the hour or half-hour employees are given today.

a thoroughly enjoyable and insightful piece of sharing. thx a wack :)

I THINK THIS IS A GOOD ROUTINE.....IT WILL REALLY WORK FOR ME......WHERE DID YOU GET THE PHOTO OF THIS PAGE....IT SEEMS TO BE AN ORIGINAL PAGE..........

How wonderful, I am a morning person also.

Yes really love this. Somehow the description of his noon task to "look over my accounts and dine" sounds hilarious to me.
Love your blog - it explores a topic that has long interested me. Thanks!

Interesting that he only slept from 10 - 4am.

This is so obvious, but it seems the one that truly achieve great things in life are those that work the hardest and remain the most disciplined about doing so. Thanks for the fantastic blog!!! WOw.

Cheers,

Steve

Love it! Where'd you get the photo?
