Daily Routines of Famous People

A cool interactive infographic displays the Daily Routines of Famous Creative People, allowing you to compare your lifestyle to the likes of Pablo Picasso, Charles Darwin and Haruki Murakami.

Next, find out what sharing a daily routine with Franz Kafka or Victor Hugo says about your creativity and intelligence.

The information in the chart shows when these 26 famous creatives used to eat, sleep, exercise, work at their day job and most importantly – when their creative juices would flow. A disclaimer states that the info refers only to a specific period of time in the creative’s life, as it was documented in their diaries, letters, etc, and compiled in Mason Currey’s book Daily Rituals, so don’t feel bad if you go to bed earlier than Benjamin Franklin. The chart might be showing his partying days.

If your sleeping schedule resembles that of Mozart or Voltaire, you will be happy to know that recent studies have found night owls to be more intelligent and creative than the worm-catching early birds.

I bet Alex Buono goes to bed really late!

Professor Jim Horne, of Loughborough University, adds that “evening types tend to be the more extrovert creative types, the poets, artists and inventors, while the morning types are the deducers, as often seen with civil servants and accountants”.

So, when is your bedtime?

    That’s “Creativity,” not “Creativety.” ;)

      Posting at 4 am might indicate I’m creative, but it doesn’t

    Ben Franklin, about 50/50 work, leisure. One of my personal heroes. (though not for this reason)
