In an in-depth interview with podcast host Joe Rogan in February, Elon Musk announced that he managed to get six hours of sleep a night despite balancing his responsibilities across all of his companies.
Speaking in The Joe Rogan Experience, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, seemed to baffle Rogan when she talked about her work schedule.
“How do you have the time? I never understand you when it comes to how you run multiple companies at the same time,” said Rogan. “You would think something like that [el cohete SpaceX] It would take a lot of focus, I think that would be all of your being to figure out how this works. “

Musk responded bluntly that he worked “a lot”, adding that he usually worked until 1 or 2 a.m. during the week. When Rogan asked him how much the tech entrepreneur slept on a regular basis, Musk didn’t hesitate to provide a number.
“About six hours,” he said. “Not that crazy.”
Musk later admitted to an impressed Rogan that he had tried to sleep less, but found that “overall productivity” decreased in the process.
“I don’t want to sleep more than six,” he said.
The nearly three and a half hour interview apparently touched on every possible topic from what humans would need to live on Mars to Musk’s concerns about artificial intelligence. At the beginning of the interview, the billionaire businessman even shared a fun fact, noting that he made Starship, the SpaceX rocket, “spikeier” after watching Sacha Baron Cohen’s 2012 comedy The Dictator.
“I thought it would be fun if we made the rocket sharper, so we did,” Musk said, adding that the design didn’t affect the aerodynamics of the rocket.
In addition to overseeing SpaceX and Tesla, Musk directs or works at three other companies: The Boring Company, Neuralink, and OpenAI.
