I’m not sure you can become a genius just by ACTING like one, but a statistician analyzed the schedules of hundreds of famous geniuses . . . including Mozart, Freud, and Dickens . . . and figured out how a typical genius spends their day.

They wake up at 10:00 A.M. and spend two hours eating, talking with family or friends, reading the news, and other leisure activities.

Exercise at noon for one hour.

Spend an hour at 1:00 P.M. on errands, paying bills, and other menial things you have to do to keep your life running.

Work on projects and big ideas for five hours, from 2:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.

Two-and-a-half hours for meals, social activities, and relaxing from 7:00 P.M. to 9:30 P.M.

Finally, spend five-and-a-half hours from 9:30 P.M. to 3:00 A.M. doing their primary work.  Like, this is when Mozart would actually compose music.

Then sleep from 3:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M. . . . just seven hours.
