How the President Manages His Time

Here’s a summary of how President Obama spends his time, from a recent Newsweek article:

“I’m a night owl. My usual day [is]: I work out in the morning; I get to the office around 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.; work till about 6:30 p.m.; have dinner with the family, hang out with the kids and put them to bed about 8:30 p.m. And then I’ll probably read briefing papers or do paperwork or write stuff until about 11:30 p.m. and then I usually have about a half hour to read before I go to bed . . . about midnight, 12:30 a.m. — sometimes a little later.”

Robert Pagliarini gives a brief analysis of the President's schedule here and ends with this exhortation:

I don’t care how busy I get or how important I think I am, if the President of the United States still has time to exercise, spend time with family, read, and grow, I certainly can, too.  What about you?
