John Naylor, 24, is a successful businessmen. Let’s follow him through a typical day.

The alarm clock goes off at 7:00 a.m. John jolts out of bed at the same time. The automatic coffee maker kicks on in the kitchen. He jumps in the shower, shaves, opens one of the half-dozen boxes of freshly laundered white shirts waiting on the shelf, finishes dressing, and pours a cup of coffee. He sits down to a piece of whole wheat toast while he flips through the Fleet Street Journal. It takes him about 15 minutes to wake up and get ready. His briefcase is in one hand and gym bag is in the other, he hops in the car, ready to start the day.

He clocks in at exactly 7:45 a.m. He takes a seat in front of the computer and prepares for hours of phone calls and meetings that occupy his mornings.

At noon John rushes to the health club where he strips off the grey suit and changes into T-shirt, shorts and the latest in design running shoes for tennis. In an hour he is sitting in the club dining room where he has scheduled lunch with a potential client. They discuss business over sparkling water, pasta and a cup of coffee.

At 2:30 p.m. he is back at his office, eager for several more hours of frantic meetings and phone calls. At 6:00 p.m. John phones out for delivery of dinner to keep him going through the next two to three hours he’ll spend at his office.

John gets home at 10:00 p.m. just in time to sit down to a bowl of frozen yoghurt and a rerun of this season’s most popular drama series before turning in.
