Justine Musk's answer to How can I be as great as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Richard Branson? - Quora
"Extreme success results from an extreme personality and comes at the cost of many other things. Extreme success is different from what I suppose you could just consider 'success', so know that you don't have to be Richard or Elon to be affluent and accomplished and maintain a great lifestyle. Your odds of happiness are better that way. But if you're extreme, you must be what you are, which means that happiness is more or less beside the point. These people tend to be freaks and misfits who were forced to experience the world in an unusually challenging way. They developed strategies to survive, and as they grow older they find ways to apply these strategies to other things, and create for themselves a distinct and powerful advantage. They don't think the way other people think. They see things from angles that unlock new ideas and insights."

Auren Hoffman's answer to What do top-tier talents do after they get off work? - Quora
"When I just started my career, I was always working.  I pretty much always just worked.  The main thing I did when I wasn't working was sleep.

"I used to spend 6 hours every Sunday reading. I treated that like a job and would dive into various books and articles. 

"My guess is that most top-tier talents spend much more time working than they would like to admit.  They work smarter AND harder.  That's generally one of the reasons they have become top-tier."
