Nikola Tesla's Best Productivity Tricks
Then there's the whole "live in fancy hotels and never pay your bill" thing. :-) More seriously, I've been lucky enough to work with a number of true 'geniuses' over the years. Seeing these guys close up, IMO, they're different beyond 'doing something different'. Having read a few bios of Tesla, and looked at some of his inventions, yeah, he's in that 'different' category. To be fair, most of his work centers on oscillation and resonance, but he took it quite far (mechanical resonance: small device that could level buildings; light: something very much like a laser; power distribution: much of his work is still used in long distance power transmission) and he did jump to other things that had nothing to do with resonance (e.g. a pump/turbine that uses surface tension, first radio controlled boat). Flagged Ha! Actually, I have a friend (very bright but not 'genius') who lives on 1 to 2 hours of sleep a night.
