I found this post very interesting. It seems that generally accepted time-management skills are lost on some of the most important people in history. Not implying that everyone can sleep as late as, or drink as much, as Churchill and remain successful, but it is interesting to consider that these folks did not work for the sake of work.
So I have been reading an amazing book, Good to Great, by Jim Collins. Without going into a full-scale book review here, Collins posits that it is easy to create a great company, but much harder to take the average good company and transform it into a great one. He looks at companies from all different sectors, pharmaceuticals, heavy industry, retail, etc. Needless to say, there are a few consistent traits of these companies. First, they have amazing leaders. Not egomaniacs like Steve Jobs, but solid, empowering leaders that create a corporate culture that is not dependent on their leadership. If Steve Jobs were to have a stroke tomorrow, Apple would be back to almost bankrupt in a few years. Jobs is the driving force for the company and the only person that can hold it all together. Not completely related to the book, but I happened to come across a great quote while I was surfing the internet today. It's from General Eric Shenseki, the former Chief of Staff of the US Army: "If you don't like change, you are going to like irrelevance even less."
