Whether you're a new CEO trying to navigate chaotic workdays or a veteran of the C-Suite trying to reignite your passion, focus is your most important asset. Many owners and CEOs think they have to be involved in every aspect of their business. They spend valuable brainpower on low-priority decisions. Before long, they're overworked and burned out.
Instead of doing everything, it's time to focus on the right things.
A CEO Only Does Three Things zeroes in on the three pillars of business: culture, people, and numbers. Steeped in twenty-plus years of practical knowledge, training, and consulting with some of the world's largest companies, this indispensable guide shows how to articulate the right culture for your business, hire people with the right mindsets, and inspire your teams to produce optimal results.
Hundreds of CEOs have used Taylor's methods to create fulfilled, efficient, professional lives, and you can join them. Learn how to focus on the work you love-and avoid CEO burnout.

About the author
Top reviews from other countries
People, culture, numbers are the only three things a ceo alone can manage.
Many aha moments
1. An important part of being CEO of a public company is dealing with the board and investors on a regular basis, there is no mention of this in the book.
2. Another important part of being CEO is dealing with acquistions, this book doesn't mention anything about that.
3. Methods described in this book will not work when someone is CEO of a company with more than 100,000 employees.
4. How to energize and motivate employees during different phases.
5. Thinking long-term vs. short-term and how to go about it.
“Drawing on the interdisciplinary findings of scientists from around the world, McTaggart concludes that an intent formed in the mind is capable of profoundly affecting the real world. In one experiment, a scientist formed the mental intent to change the pH level of water in a beaker. Over several days of focused thought, he tested the water and found that its reading matched his intended level. In other words, the physical world was affected by the mental world. Tiller says, “For the last 400 years, an unstated assumption of science is that human intention cannot affect what we call physical reality. Our experimental research of the past decade shows that, for today’s world and under the right conditions, this assumption is no longer correct.” If Tiller is right and our focused intent can indeed affect our living reality, the implications for CEOs are staggering. Forming and keeping the proper intent with regards to your Culture, People, and Numbers can literally change the world around you.”
When water evaporates the volume of the solution decreases, but the mole amount of the solute remains the same, so its concentration increases. In an acidic solution, evaporation decreases the pH. However, in a basic solution, evaporation increases the pH.
To assert that the CEO can change physical reality with concentrated thought and attention is just insane and devalues the following pages.
