How truly great entrepreneurs manage their time

Edited excerpt from Justine Musk‘s Quora answer to How can I be as great as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and Richard Branson?:

They are unlikely to be reading stuff like this. (This is *not* to slam or criticize people who do; I love to read this stuff myself.) They are more likely to go straight to a book: perhaps a biography of Alexander the Great or Catherine the Great or someone else they consider Great. Surfing the ‘Net is a deadly timesuck, and given what they know their time is worth — even back in the day when technically it was not worth that — they can’t afford it.

Notes:
(1) Thank you Bryan Chong for the tip.
(2) Cf. (i) Time management: An extreme approach to email, (ii) Should you blog (or tweet)?, and (iii) If you want to get more done, stop doing these things.
