What 10 Successful People Read In The Morning

Salam Sejahtera...

Staying informed is a constant struggle for most of us, let alone people with high-profile, high-pressure jobs. There’s usually not time to leisurely read a favorite paper over coffee.
Still, catching up on news is an important part of what’s often a very early morning for many of the world’s most successful people.
From skimming through Twitter for the day’s most important stories to perusing the morning paper during a workout, we’ve collected the morning reading habits of top execs, media leaders, and successful politicians.  

Warren Buffett starts his days with an assortment of national and local news.


The billionaire investor tells CNBC he reads the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, the New York Times, USA Today, the Omaha World-Herald, and the American Banker in the mornings. That’s a hefty list to get through.

David Cush reads five newspapers and listens to sports radio on a bike at the gym. 


The Virgin America CEO told the AP that he wakes up at 4:15 a.m. on the West Coast to send emails and call people on the East Coast. Then he heads to the gym, hops on an exercise bike, listens to Dallas sports radio, and reads his daily papers, which include the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, San Francisco Chronicle, and Financial Times.

Bill Gates reads the national papers and gets a daily news digest.


The Microsoft co-founder gets a daily news digest with a wide array of topics, and he gets alerts for stories on Berkshire Hathaway, where he sits on the board of directors. Gates also reads the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Economist cover-to-cover, according to an interview with Fox Business.

Dave Girouard reads the New York Times and Wall Street Journal on his Nexus 7, and mixes in some Winston Churchill.


Girouard, CEO of Upstart and former president of Google Enterprise, told Business Insider that he’s a big fan of Winston Churchill’s speeches. He’s currently reading ”Never Give In! The Best of Winston Churchill’s Speeches.” For news, he scrolls through the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.

David Heinemeier Hansson flicks through tech blogs.


The Danish programmer and creator of the programming language Ruby on Rails consumes a tech-filled fare each morning. He tells Business Insider that his daily round consists of Reddit, Hacker News, Engadget, the Economist, Boing Boing, and Twitter.

Jeffrey Immelt reads his papers in a very particular fashion. 


“I typically read the Wall Street Journal, from the center section out,” the General Electric CEO told Fast Company. “Then I’ll go to the Financial Times and scan the FTIndex and the second section. I’ll read the New York Times business page and throw the rest away. I look at USA Today, the sports section first, business page second, and life third. I’ll turn to Page Six of the New York Post and then a little bit on business.”

Charlie Munger is devoted to the Economist.


When Fox Business asked the Berkshire Hathaway vice-chairman and right-hand man to Warren Buffett what he likes to read in the morning, Munger kept it simple. “The Economist,” he said.

Gavin Newsom starts with Politico’s Playbook email, and then reads each of California’s major papers.


The California Attorney General told The Wire that he starts by rotating through the morning shows at 7 a.m., then moves to his iPad to read Playbook, the Sacramento Bee, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Los Angeles Times. Finally, he moves on to the news app Flipboard, through which he checks sites like Mashable and AllThingsD.

Jonah Peretti pulls out the business or sports section from the New York Times for the subway ride; his wife keeps the rest.


The Buzzfeed founder and CEO wakes up around 8:30 a.m. and heads into the office with the sports or business section of the New York Times, he tells The Wire. He also takes New York magazine; subscriptions to the New Yorker and Economist fell by the wayside after he had twins.
Still, like many younger leaders, the principle way he discovers information is through Twitter and Facebook.
