There's a lot we know already about the daily routines of successful CEOs, executives, and other notable business titans.

Billionaire Richard Branson always gets an early 5 a.m. start to his day, and sets time aside to spend with his family before eating breakfast. As he explains, "Not only does this help them know how important they are to me, but it also grounds me before I start my day."

As for Elon Musk, this Tesla and SpaceX founder skips breakfast and forgoes most phone calls. The entrepreneur, who has been known to work 85 to 100 weekly hours, even breaks his schedule into a series of five-minute slots each day. Sounds crazy, right?

Before you become impressed by the daily schedules of billionaire businessmen, consider what Mark Wahlberg has to offer.

The 47-year-old Hollywood star recently revealed his entire daily routine, which begins at 2:30 a.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m.

Wahlberg's routine includes two breakfasts, multiple showers, morning and evening workouts, and even cryo chamber recovery. Of course, his extreme schedule also makes time for meetings and work. Check it out below.

2:30 a.m. -- Wake up

2:45 a.m. -- Prayer time

3:15 a.m. -- Breakfast

3:40-5:15 a.m. -- Workout

5:30 a.m. -- Post-workout meal

6:00 a.m. -- Shower

7:30 a.m. -- Golf

8:00 a.m. -- Snack

9:30 a.m. -- Cryo chamber recovery

10:30 a.m. -- Snack

11:00 a.m. -- Family time, meetings, and work calls

1:00 p.m. -- Lunch

2:00 p.m. -- Meetings and work calls

3:00 p.m. -- Pick up kids from school

3:30 p.m. -- Snack

4:00 p.m. -- Workout No. 2

5:00 p.m. -- Shower

5:30 p.m. -- Dinner and family time

7:30 p.m. -- Bedtime

Before you write off this routine as total nonsense, don't forget that according to Forbes, Wahlberg took home $68 million in 2017 and was the highest-paid actor of that year.

Everyone's daily schedule will be different in the pursuit of success. But if you haven't yet, maybe try out the Wahlberg way.
