Jeff Bezos’ Daily Routine Looks Something Like This

Disclaimer: This article is purely for informational and educational purposes. It is neither endorsed by nor affiliated with Jeff Bezos. It is based on publicly available information about Bezos. Any resemblance to Bezos's name, image, or likeness is purely coincidental and is not intended to profit from it

Jeff Bezos. As of July 2021 — Founder and executive chairman of Amazon, world’s richest man, owner of space exploration company—Blue Origin—and big-time philanthropist. 

That’s an impressive résumé right there. Or maybe “résumé” doesn’t even come close to defining the achievements of a man worth $144 billion. 

Granted, only 1% of the world will ever possess such wealth or importance in their lifetime. But we can still learn from the lives of notable people regardless of how different our realities might be. 

In this post, we’ll highlight specific activities in Jeff Bezos’ daily routine and how these activities can help boost your productivity. Feel free to take a deep breath and hold on to nothing. It should be a bump-free ride.

There are no guarantees of wealth, but there may be a guarantee of progress if you include some of these habits in your daily routine.

 5 Habits From Jeff Bezos's Daily Routine

Early Sleep. Early Rise.

At the Economic Club of Washington DC in 2018, Jeff Bezos told his audience, “I go to bed early, and I wake up early.” 

There are still many who don’t value the “early sleep and early rise” philosophy. The argument is often that the realities of life make it almost impossible to sleep early and rise early every day. 

Sure, it may sound like a difficult task, but it’s the best sleep habit for the human body. 

The perceived “difficulty” of a habit does not change its effectiveness. For example, eating a balanced diet with every meal you take is difficult, but there’s no doubt that your health will be much better if you eat your vegetables regularly. 

Rising early affords you time to work out (if that’s your thing), meditate, study and do several other things to put your morning in order. 

One more thing:

Sleeping early and getting up early may not be as difficult as people assume. When you’ve got a habit buddy like Focus Bear to remind you of sleep schedules and to block off disruptive social media notifications, you’ll find that sleeping early is not only a luxury for Jeff Bezos because you can have it too.


Puttering and Cleaning

Admittedly, “puttering” sounds like something golf-related. But that’s “putting.” So, you can relax. This isn’t some billionaire-proof activity. 😄

The Cambridge Dictionary defines puttering as doing things in a relaxed way without trying very hard.

Jeff says that his puttering time is essential to him. He reads newspapers, drinks coffee, and enjoys breakfast with his kids during puttering time. Add doing the dishes to the puttering list too.

Have you ever been so engrossed in a mundane activity that you feel calmer and refreshed when you’re done? If you’ve experienced this before, you understand why the second-richest man in the world cherishes his puttering time.

A study by researchers at Florida State University explains the effects of mundane activities on mental health.

The findings of the study, as described in this article, showed that people who mindfully washed dishes (they focused on smelling the soap, feeling the temperature of the water, and touching the dishes) experienced a 25% increase in their levels of inspiration while simultaneously experiencing a 27% reduction in their levels of nervousness.

In my experience, puttering works. Because the mundane activity is easy, you’re not focused on being perfect. You’re right there, in the moment. You are munching your morning cereal slowly, sliding the mopstick back and forth, or scrubbing your hands against a plate buried in white foam.

It is truly therapeutic. 


Starting with the most critical task

Jeff’s peak period appears to be mornings. 

In his words, “I like to do my high IQ meetings before lunch, like anything that’s going to be mentally challenging, that’s a 10:00 a.m. meeting.” 

Prioritizing the most important task (or the eat-the-frog strategy) is often relied upon by many psychologists and productivity coaches as one of the more effective ways to start your day.

If you’re like most people, your peak period is in the morning, too, because it comes right after rest and breakfast. Since energy levels dwindle as the day grows older, it makes sense to devote your peak period to the most crucial task. That’s where you’re most aware and sharp.

Asides from efficiency, getting the most important task early gives you momentum to handle the rest of the day.


Take Breaks

In the popular How I Met Your Mother American sitcom, there’s an episode titled “Nothing Good Happens After 2 AM.” Those who attend parties regularly know this to be true. 

Jeff Bezos has a similar thing to say about his daily routine. The world’s richest man, with literally billions to think about, says,  “By 5:00 p.m., I’m like, ‘I can’t think about this today, let’s try that again tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.,’

The lesson here is that working for ten hours a day does not necessarily mean more productivity. It’s not the quantity of work. It is the quality of work that matters.

Being honest with yourself includes having the guts to realize when you’ve exhausted your productivity and telling yourself to slow down. For me, rarely does anything productive with work happen after 3 PM.

Data from this report suggests that the decline in productivity for most people is after 4 PM. When you reach the point of this decline, it is best to avoid making big decisions.

Take time out to rest and recharge. 

Using Focus Bear, you can set an end of day wind-down routine so that you’re not tempted to work until 10pm.


Sleep Well

Good sleep is at the beginning and end of a productive day. You wake from a good sleep at the start, and right at the end, you ease into it again.

How many hours do you need to be well-rested?

Jeff Bezos says he needs eight hours of sleep because it gives him more energy and puts him in a better mood. 

Block out distractions. You’re better off snooping around in dreamland.



There’s plenty to learn from Jeff Bezos’s daily routine. It is simple and relatively easy to do. Creating your routine can help you stay productive for longer and get more work done. 

If you need help sticking to your routine, Focus Bear is the tool for you.
