Daily Routines of Geniuses & Learning from Them to Get Success

Twenty-four hours seem little when you have projects to finish, kids to watch, and a life to live. To do much in these little hours, geniuses learned to adhere to daily routines. You can employ parts of their routines to get yourself closer to success.

The Rigidness of the Daily Routines

For a daily routine to work, you must always maintain it. Eventually, the routine becomes second nature, making it easy to maintain.The strict routine of Immanuel Kant, one of the great philosophers, became such second nature to him that neighbors used his activities to set their clocks. You could say that his routine and discipline contributed to his success, just as yours will if you stick to it.

No Multitasking

'I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time': said Charles Dickens. Despite that he was a dropout, he became a great English novelist. You should follow what he says and do one thing at one time. Although you could do many tasks simultaneously, doing them would end in confusion, error, and work void of quality. All in all, if Dickens did not multitask, why would you?

Working in Silence

Completing most intellectual tasks is hard amidst noise. The noise that can distract you the most is music with lyrics. Listening to it while writing an essay on of Ulysses, solving an equation in Newtonian physics, or planning the perfect winter wedding is like trying to hold a conversation while doing those same activities. On the other hand, classical music seems to facilitate learning for some, such as Einstein. He would play the violin when he struggled with a problem. And even if classical music is somewhat good, a study found that silence is healthier than any music. Silence relieves a person of stress, while noise causes high blood pressure and heart attacks. It creates brain cells and restores attention. It allows ideas to flow easier, and since from this one can connect ideas quicker, it increases creativity.'I need solitude for my writing; not 'like a hermit' - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man.': said Kafka. And he would write at night, the most silent time. He is now thought to be a major 20th-century literary figure. So, because it provides many benefits, work in silence.

Thinking Time & Walks

Voltaire dictated his thoughts, John Milton meditated, Beethoven took long walks, and, for their thinking time, other geniuses did their own things. Sometimes thinking time can be a walk or just sitting alone in a room. No matter what it is, thinking time should always be in silence.During these times, you can mull over books read and think about ideas learned. You can go over whatever you find interesting or concerning. Having this time will allow you not to waste time worrying throughout the day. Because it's so beneficial, thinking time needs to be a part of every routine.


Exercising improves memory, boosts creativity, keeps the brain sharp, and provides many other health benefits. It is, therefore, vital for daily routines.Incorporate these things into your daily routine, arrange your life, and succeed.
