Fireside Chat with Jeff Bezos

"Every job comes with pieces you don't like.... You have to figure out how to set up your life in such a way that you can minimize the things [you don't like]. I've found that people don't dislike hard work. What people dislike is being out of control—they can't control their life; they can't control their environment. This happens to me when I get over-scheduled. I hate being over-scheduled. I want some time to be able to think and free myself. We all have the same amount of time in the world. Nobody has more time than anybody else. And when you become a very successful person, one of the things [that happens] is you start to get over-scheduled.... So you have to guard your time and try to stay a little bit flexible." --Jeff Bezos
