About the book

How do truly excellent CEOs accomplish more in less time than their peers? What is their strategy for getting things done at work while still having time to pursue hobbies and spend quality time with friends and family?

 

When it comes to time management, both outstanding and lazy CEOs have a secret. Rather to wasting time on a variety of tasks, the best CEOs devote the majority of their time to removing the single most significant impediment to their company's success. Before taking action, they spend a lot of time diagnosing the problem. This procedure is comparable to locating a kink in a garden hose so that the flow can be restored. It's pointless to try to untangle the hose before the real issue is identified.

 

They engage in one of five possible roles to resolve the kink in the hose, depending on the nature of the constraint:

  • Learner
  • Architect
  • Coach
  • Engineer
  • Player

 

These are the characteristics that define outstanding leadership. These are all high-leverage positions that contribute to the company's long-term success.

 

This isn't just a theory; it's based on years of experience working with thousands of CEOs of high-growth businesses. The key to being both brilliant and lazy is to only work when you're in a pinch and avoid any job that doesn't add to your organization's capability.

 

Lazy CEOs have a set of well-honed techniques for avoiding this low-value activity.

 

I chose a slacker to complete a difficult task. Because a slacker will find a simple solution. Bill Gates is an American businessman and philanthropist. So, do you want to keep putting in the effort? Or would you rather stay at home and be lazy?
