As we know Edison was an American inventor. Edison was born in 1847 in Milan, Ohio. He developed many electrical devices such as electric power generator, mass communication, Sound recording device, motion picture camera and long-lasting practical electric light bulb.
Edison was married twice, his first wife died young. Both wives complained that he spent most of his time in the lab and had little time for his family.
While he was working for Western Union, America’s leading electrical enterprises at the time, Edison became famous for his ability to cure ‘bugs’. He frequently worked all night at the company’s headquarters and was described by the company’s operating chief as a ‘genius’ and a ‘friend for work’ who had ‘unfailing self-confidence.’
Edison worked up to 18 hours a day. His ability to live off four hours of sleep a day – and the occasional catnap – was widely known. Edison used to say, Sleep is like a drug. Take too much at a time and it makes you dopey. You lose time vitality and also opportunities.”
He strongly believed that “accomplishing something provides the only real satisfaction in life”.
