How do you spend your days?  (The day you spent 5 hours binge watching Game of Thrones doesn't count... unless you do that everyday!)

Typically we spend our days in patterns of routine.  The things we do over and over, day-in and day-out, that make us who we are.  Looking at your routines and whether or not they feed you creatively may give you insight into your current output of creative brilliance or lack thereof. 

Info We Trust has created this magnificent infographic documenting the routines of famous Master Artists; Gustave Flaubert, Ludwig Van Beethoven, W.A. Mozart, Thomas Mann, Sigmund Freud, Immanuel Kant, Maya Angelou, John Milton, Honore de Balzac, Victor Hugo, Charles Dickens, W.H. Auden, Charles Darwin, P.I. Tchaikovsky, Le Corbusier, and Benjamin Franklin.

The design represents each day as a continuous 24 hour cycle.  Colors mark major categories of activity – work, sleep, exercise, etc.

Comparing the routines of these creatives is fascinating. Some work in the early morning, some work better late at night. Many begin their day with coffee. (Ok, things haven't changed that much!) Considering that our modern concept of exercise wasn't developed until the mid-20th century, it's fascinating how many of these people spent their afternoons taking vigorous walks.  Click the Poster to get a closer view.

Most intriguing is comparing your day to these creative masters.

What's your routine?
