Now, please indulge my potential niaivety for a moment if you will; I spend a fair bit of time wondering about this so have decided to seek some opiniion.
It would appear that the great Execs/CEO's, COO's of our collective corporate companys somehow seem to manage what appears to be a 24hr life at work including global travel and so forth, seven kids and a time consuming (ie property renovation) hobby, whilst studying for a Masters at the weekends and making appearances at the local NFL teams speeches.
Thing is, with the impression of the workload they give, versus the large pay packet how do they achieve it? I speak as a middle tier professional, with 2 kids and a mortgage much like any of us here, and I don't have spare time for toffee (struggling to squeeze a ride in this week).
So, is it an illusion? Do they really work the 9-5 with the odd "international call" in the evenings, or is there some secret that I'm niave to about how these people are managing thier time / using an illusion?
