Articles like this one from the New York Times are meant to be inspiring, I think. But learning how a CEO manages his time is not that valuable for any non-CEO to learn about, simply because a CEO doesn’t have a boss whose demands and whims make time management impossible sometimes.

I’d rather hear about people 1-3 levels down from the CEO about how they manage their time. Their stories would be more relatable, though they would sell fewer papers.
