You know what they say. .. you can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl. I am sure the saying can be adapted and applied to the c-level!!!

Re: Relaxing is good for you
I had a manager that took a 15 minute nap every morning at 9:00. He would set his alarm, pull his hat over his eyes and snore till the alarm sounded. He said that made him "good to go" four the rest of the day.

Relaxing is good for you
Taking the time to relax such as doing a meditation (even if it's silly self-aggrandizement) usually makes people more productive and better able to make decisions. So even if it's silly, i hope all CIO's have a few minutes to spare.
