1 People work best when they’re fresh not when they’re tired. So CEOs should take good holidays, enjoy time away from work, learn to relax more and better
2 Most of the decisions a CEO makes are not that important; but a few are crucial. So focus on defining the decisions which really matter and concentrate on those. Don’t worry about the others
3 Hire great people underneath you – people you can learn from as well as teach. It’s easy to delegate if you have someone bright to delegate to
4 Too many CEOs take pride in working long hours and taking responsibility for everything. In truth, this is a sign of insecurity. This kind of CEO needs to think less about being in control and more about being in command.
