Billionaire investor Yuri Milner lives by a routine.
Every day, he wears nearly the same outfit and eats nearly the same meals.
A small, daily change like not spending 10 minutes picking out an outfit adds up. And often, those clothes are probably jammed into a suitcase anyway.
Milner revealed that he spends about 200 days a year traveling, a frequency which he describes as not necessarily exhausting, but “physical.”
Altogether, he says that he and the team at his investment firm DST Global travel so much every year that it’s equal to about three trips to the moon and back.
Being willing to travel for the investment portfolio has come in handy for Milner, though, who has invested in international rock stars like Alibaba, Xiaomi, WhatsApp, JD.com, and Flipkart, among others.
When he is home at his $100 million mansion, Milner is surrounded by TVs. The previous owners of the house owned a lot of art. Because they took it with them when they sold the house, he filled each empty space with flat-screen TVs.
There are 50 in total, he says, and he says that he wants to configure them to receive streams from NASA’s Kepler space telescope. Space is a passion of his: Milner recently poured $100 million into an initiative to search for life on other planets.
