Writer Thomas C. Corley has worked for nearly five years to understand the rich people. He has done research on many rich subjects. He observed about 177 rich people and studied their entire lives to find out which habits led them to success. Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Dan Gilbert, Mark Kuban are among the rich people. Corley wrote a famous book titled ‘Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individual’.
At the end of the research, Corley wrote that the riches rarely watch television. Most of them read books at a specific time of the day. This was also observed by author Michael Simmons. Many riches deliberately set apart at least an hour a day to learn. Simmons thinks this habit is one of the keys to success. Also, he saw they spent at least five hours a day on work that separates them from others. He called this the ‘five-hour rule’. These five hours include reading books, thinking, and analyzing your work.
