Federal Judge Richard Posner takes his laptop practically everywhere for reading or writing legal opinions, a book or a blog.
Bill Gross, chief investment officer at bond fund Pimco, practices yoga every morning.
Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Renault in France and Nissan in Japan, follows a rigid schedule. One-topic meetings never run longer than 90 minutes unless they’re operational: half for presentation, half for discussion.
Thomas Edison did his best work at night, and boasted that he never kept a clock anywhere in his workroom.
