Can you point me in the direction of materials that indicate how people who would be considered exemplary of their field schedule(d) their time?

I'm not necessarily interested in productivity tips or anything of that nature. I'm more interested in finding out how these exemplary folks went about their day-to-day life in the interest of an agenda or a goal. They can come from any historical period or culture. Whether they were successful in the endeavor or not doesn't matter. The point is to get a sense for how they filled daily time in their formative years.
Detailed sources are good but anecdotal accounts are acceptable.
