After working in a high pressure environment for over 20-years, Ray understands how your career can take priority – even at the expense of your health! Following on from ‘Work-out like a Boss! Part.1, Ray looks at why many CEOs are falling into the trap of ‘The Human Energy Crisis.’
“Unfortunately CEOs won’t often listen to arguments about the importance of good health. They're busy and stubborn. At the same time, their personalities and activities can encourage unhealthy behaviour-lavish meals at nearly every lunch and dinner, taking chauffeured cars everywhere. Many of them don't even get in the generally recommended daily amount of walking 3.5 miles.
The problem is not finding the time for fitness, no matter what executives says. They generally have the power to get done anything they seriously want to do. The problem is that they don't believe they even need to. Getting winded by a 5 minute run or having above average blood pressure can't stop them from doing their job, they figure, and for some of them the job is more important than anything else.
But their jobs, as well as their bodies, can be victims of that kind of thinking. A low energy CEO is a problem for any company, as is a stressed out one. Decision making and attention suffer. Family life is impaired too, as work takes longer to get done and uses up energy that a less fatigued CEO could save for after hours.
In other words, the simple benefit of being healthy and having more energy should be enough to keep anyone eating right and exercising but also the company's culture is at stake. Fat, disengaged
CEOs make for fat, disengaged employees and managers.”
Don't fall into the TRAP!
