These people are not perfect but then no one is. Also there is no single, unique schedule or routine for everyone to be followed which can be called universal. Everybody has a different timeline and story behind their success. So, what do we do if we are struggling a lot to get things right for a long time? We need to change.
Now, a change is only effective when initiated and initiated right and then maintained. So, if you are struggling with your morning routine. Here is some help.
You don’t need to follow anyone entirely but you can always add the good things to your bucket.
1. Elon Musk, Founder of SpaceX and Owner of Tesla
Gets six hours of sleep, wakes up at 7 a.m. and addresses to what he calls “critical emails” for half an hour.
He drinks coffee, but most mornings he finds himself too busy for breakfast. Can not argue much here, after all he is handling 6 big companies including SpaceX and Tesla at the same time.
2. Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon
Gets eight hours of sleep each night. Avoids having morning meetings. Want to know why? To eat breakfast with his wife. Little secrets. Simple life.
3. Bill Gates, Co-founder of Microsoft
Likes to get seven hours sleep. Spends an hour on the treadmill in his private gym. Watches courses from the Teaching Company while doing so.
He says, “I can give a speech without much sleep, I can do parts of my job that way, but in thinking creatively, I’m not much good without seven hours.”
4. Warren Buffett, American business magnate, Investor

Gets up by 6.45 am and then reads six newspapers. He otherwise does not have any fixed schedule and spends 80% of his time reading.
5. Steve Jobs, Co-founder of Apple Inc.
Every morning he used to ask himself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do?” Now if the answer was no for too many days in a row, then he knew he needs to change something.
A profound thought, right? Trying to connect with your inner-self each and every day to know if you need a change or you are doing all right.
6. Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook
Unlike others, Mark does not believe in waking up so early in the morning. He wakes up at 8 am. Wears the same t-shirt everyday to avoid wasting time deciding what to wear every day. Ever heard of capsule wardrobe? It is something like that.
7. Gary Vaynerchuk, Co-founder of VaynerMedia
Also, four-time New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and internationally recognized internet personality.
Wakes up at 6 a.m. Takes his phone into the bathroom to read the news.
Hugs his kids for five minutes before leaving the house. Calls a family member while driving to work.
8. Jack Dorsey, Co-founder of Twitter and Square
Wakes up at 5:30 in the morning and then meditates for 30 minutes. After that, he goes for a six-mile jog. After that, he loves brewing his own coffee.
9. Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group
Wakes up at 5 a.m.
He explains so as, “I’m able to do some exercise and spend time with my family, which puts me in a great mind frame before getting down to business.”
He leaves the curtains undrawn and so that the sun comes up straight into his eyes. He loves bouncing up early.
Also, he plays tennis before sitting down for a healthy breakfast.
10. Jack Ma, Co-founder of Alibaba Group
Gets up early around 6 to 7 am and tries to utilize every single second by enjoying it. Then he does work for half an hour and after that spends time with his family.
Jack says, “ I always tell myself that we are born here not to work, but to enjoy life. We are here to make things better for one another, and not to work. If you are spending your whole life working, you will certainly regret it.”
11 Tim Ferriss, Author, Entrepreneur, and Public Speaker
Tim is kind of a night owl, so he typically wakes up between 08:30 – 10:00 am. After that, he makes his bed and meditates for 20 minutes.
12. Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks
Gets up at 4.30am every morning. Walks his three dogs and work out.
Schultz says, “Around 5.45am I make coffee for myself and my wife using an 8-cup Bodum French press.”
