I Was Astonished By The Daily Routines Of History’s Most Creative Minds.

One of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Benjamin Franklin famously wrote, “there will be sleeping enough in the grave.” Which is not surprising since the polymath was an author, scientist, inventor, and diplomat. It appears for anyone to accomplish a fraction of what he did, forgoing sleep seems like the only option.

Yet, Spanish sculptor, printmaker and regarded as the most important painter of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso seemed to enjoy long snoozes.

The Daily Routines Of Famous Creative People, as captured on a graph illustrates a breakdown of the most renown writers, artist and musicians schedule. The sketch by Podio analyzes the amount of time assigned to sleep, creative work, food/leisure, among others.

Inspired by the book Daily Riturals: How Artists Work by Mason Currey, the book highlights the anecdotes and rituals required for great minds and talents to flourish.

Take a look at how great minds planned their days.
