Amazon founder and former-CEO Jeff Bezos is the richest person in the world at the time we’re making this video, with a net worth of about $190 billion. However, unlike some other billionaire CEOs, Bezos doesn’t believe in overworking himself. His secrets to success include getting 8 hours of sleep, waking up early, spending time with family, and essentially doing “nothing” for a few hours everyday. He does chores at home, makes breakfast for his kids, and only has about four very productive work hours each day.
Bezos says his performance peaks in the late morning and early afternoon– science backs him up that these are typically the best times to work and make decisions. The billionaire knows himself well and avoids making thousands of small choices. Instead, he’s all about the big picture. His secret to success might just be how well he prioritizes his self-care and a system he calls “work-life harmony”– a spin on work-life balance.
We can all learn something from how Bezos organizes his day. From “puttering” around in the morning to ending his days strictly at 5pm. Bezos has picked up the kind of habits that have helped him build a trillion-dollar company and gotten him to space. From his most productive hours and why he stepped down as Amazon CEO to his strange evening-dinner habits, this is how Jeff Bezos spends a typical work day. Click play to find out why he rejects the term “balance” and how you can set yourself up for success just like the world’s top billionaire.
