Have people ever looked down on you because you like to catch a good amount of sleep?  Or does it seem like you are not all productive because you don’t work round the clock? You shouldn’t be discouraged and feel lazy because you are not alone. Successful Jeff Bezos CEO of Amazon, founder of Blue Origin and the owner of The Washington Post never rush his day, check out what is in his schedule.

Jeff’s Daily Schedule

  • Good Sleep

Jeff loves to have a good sleep, he says “I sleep early and wake up early” but then he also stated that he gets eight hours sleep daily except he is travelling between different time zones. He shows that the best way to start a good day is to have a good sleep.

  • Paper and Coffee

After Jeff wakes up he states that he doesn’t rush to get his day started, instead he reads the day’s paper while having a cup of coffee.

  • Breakfast with family

He also loves to have breakfast with his family, so every morning he eats breakfast with his kids before he sends them off to school.

  • Dishes on me

For a billionaire this is so odd but Jeff says he often does the dishes after breakfast. A study by the University of California, Santa Barbara, shows that spending time on mindless tasks allows the mind to wander and be more creative. I guess this is why Jeff is often in charge of doing dishes.

  • Important meetings first please

Jeff reveals that when it’s time to face business he starts with his most important meetings by 10:00am. Christoph Randler a renowned biologist states that ‘people whose performance peaks in the morning are better positioned for career success, because they are more proactive than people who are at their best in the evening.’

  • That’s all for the day, I’m tired now

Once its 5:00pm, Jeff does not take a decision on business until its 10:00am the next day. He draws the line when he is tired. He says, ‘the quality of those decisions might be lower because you’re tired or grouchy or any number of things.”


That’s all, yes you read right. Jeff never chokes his day, and his daily schedule is not choked. Five things I have learnt from Jeff are this: Have a good sleep, spend time with family, do a mindless task daily, give your best decisions before the day gets busy, and draw the line when you are tired. What have you learnt from Jeff?
