I am fairly confident that being a CEO is like being the farmer on "Shaun the Sheep." You're nominally in charge, but the staff constantly runs amok and you have no idea what's truly going on. 🐑 🐑 🐑

@viciousviscosity If you don't know what's going on, and your staff is constantly running amok, and you only survive by their occasional bout of guilt... then yeah, golf.

@mwlucas A senior vice president at TWC once relayed it to me as being like the human condition. You think you're in charge, that you're making your body do stuff. But in reality you are a system of trillions of creatures that you're barely aware of who are actually acting. By the time you have the "thought" to move your arm, the trillions of creatures already made the move but let you think it was your idea.

@mwlucas My impression from smoking area discussions with a few of them.
