These plain and simple habits show how a person with immense caliber and wealth and all the resources they need can also live a simple fruitful life. These people and their habits are worth mentioning.

This proves that wealthiness and high status does not need to translate to a luxurious lifestyle. The people who believe in living a simple life are also the ones who have more time in their life and spend this towards the achievement of a bigger purpose. This makes them focussed and sincere, that is how they spend most of their time focusing on their art and not waste time on meager things in life. There is a lot that people can learn from their lives and inculcating even half of these will definitely make you a much better person.
