“Somebody asked me, ‘What’s the job of a CEO?’ and there’s a number of things a CEO does. What you mostly do is articulate the vision, develop the strategy, and hire people to fit the culture.

Effectiveness is rooted in discipline and routine, not talent or genius. Successful entrepreneurs make sure to be detailed, organized and fully prepared before executing any goal or plan. Self-awareness and self-esteem are the programs running in the background of your mind that help make it all happen.
