“Successful leaders carve out time for daily exercise because they have no choice. They have to prepare their bodies to handle the increasing demands of long hours and heavy travel schedules. Weight-training and cardio exercises give them the strength and endurance to communicate with energy all day. I’ve heard from several people who work with Apple CEO Tim Cook that he has superhuman energy. He once stepped off an 18-hour plane trip after working most of the time, took a shower in his hotel room, and conducted 12-hours of meetings! The other executives were ready to call it quits and Cook had plenty of energy left. How does he do it? Cook is a fitness buff; often hitting the gym by…you guessed it…5:00 a.m.. He cannot afford “not” to work out.”
