Deepak Chopra is known for his holistic approach to healing and medicine. The author actually created a light and sound mind machine that puts you "into a meditative, relaxed, dream, sleep, creative or altered state of consciousness." He had the help of a Harvard neuroscientist to create it and says he never leaves his home without it. Staying spiritually in sync is a key component to Chopra's success.
For Meg Whitman, it's the physical aspect of her day that helps her stay focused. "Since competing in high school, I've tried to make swimming a part of my regular routine," Whitman admitted to Mashable. "The physical exercise and time alone in a pool is a great outlet for focusing my thoughts and relieving stress."
Peter Guber, CEO of Mandalay Entertainment and owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Golden State Warriors, has a more conventional must-have: "I admit it. I have become habituated, if not addicted to my 'mobile' and all of its benefits. We're building with the Yankees, our AAA stadium in Pennsylvania, and I log in to two live cameras on site to see how the stadium is progressing."
