Do something hard and lonely
March 16, 2011Posted by on
I just read this interesting advice for CEOs:
“Regularly practice something Spartan and individualistic. Do something that you know very few other people are willing to do. This will give you a filling of toughness, a certain self-elitism. It will mentally prepare you for the battle of business.
Something that is hard and lonely is studying late at night for a graduate degree in fashion design, especially in the winter when everyone else is asleep. Or running long, slow distances in the morning…
All great and successful athletes remember the endless hours of seemingly unrewarded toil. So do corporate presidents.”
Jeffrey J. Fox, from the book How to become CEO
