Elon Musk has a lot to chew on his plate.

The tech visionary equates his time between his 2 behemoths in Tesla and SpaceX. His busy timetable sees him speeding back and forth between SpaceX's LA base and Tesla's HQ in the Bay Area.

Altogether Musk spends about 85 to 100 hours a week working tirelessly. He also assessed that he succeeded to dedicate about 80% of his time towards product engineering and design.

What is Elon Musk's secret to get things done?

For starters, the CEO disregards most phone calls, refrain from getting stuck dealing with emails, and sleeps around 6 hours every night.

Additionally, Musk has a unique method up his sleeve: He breaks his entire day into a series of five-minute sprints. Musk even eats his lunch in 5 minutes or less, typically during a meeting.

Splitting a schedule into smaller fragments can easily ensure a major productivity boost. 5 minutes might feel like nothing in the scheme of things, but the method likely allows Musk to remain on course all throughout his hectic day and ascertains that none of his precious time goes to waste.

The tech entrepreneur also claims he is frequently striving to improve and boost his productivity.

“That’s the single best piece of advice: Constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself,” he said back in 2012.
