Let’s face it, we’re all human. As leaders we have the same amount of time in our days as the rest of the world. However all smart leaders know how to best use their time. In a survey by The London School of Economics of over 1,000 CEOs in six countries, the average CEO spends 56% of their time meeting with others. They then spend 26% of their time alone (planning, sending emails, and other solo activities), 10% of their time on personal matters, and 8% of their time traveling.
I find it interesting how smart leaders know how to balance meeting with members of their organization and taking time alone to think and process. Like most things in our lives, it’s all about balance.
