There are only 24 hours in a day. That’s something even business titans and world leaders can’t change. But you can change how you use them. Some of the most successful people in the world not only work extremely hard in the hours they have, they create more of them by forgoing sleep.
Some people are genetically wired to wake up earlier or sleep less. Others seem to thrive on less sleep only through sheer determination. Sleep is often sacrificed in order to excel at work and CEO’s still manage to have a personal life.
Here is a list of top CEO’s who barely sleep. Try to implement this!
1. Jack Dorsey – Twitter Founder
Dorsey said in an interview that he used to spend 8-10 hours on Twitter and 8-10 hours at Square, both daily in a span of just 24 hours. Hats off to this man who even in such a busy schedule, wakes up at 5:30 am for jogging! Jack sleeps for around 4-5 hours a day.
