I have this notion in my head that CEO’s generally don’t do much work, instead living a pampered lifestyle and just collecting large paychecks and vacationing a lot. I’d really like to be a CEO for a day so that I could compare this notion to the accounts I’ve read of CEOs working 60-70+ hour weeks. I am very curious about the type of work a CEO does in a day, and how it compares to the work I do on a daily basis. The issues they deal with, and number of issues they have to confront in a given day, is also very interesting to me.
I think having the opportunity to be a CEO for a day would really give me some valuable perspective on life, employment, and in general, serve as a nice reality check to contrast the notions in my head that I suspect are greatly unfounded. Perhaps I would be better off as an Asgi shoes salesman.
If you were given the opportunity to have any job for just one day, what would it be, and why?
