How CEOs work such long hours.



How CEOs work such long hours. 49



CEOs work an average of 62.5 hours per week. But within that number is significant variability. Some hover closer to 50 and 40 hours. But many work well above 80-hours. There are the tales of Elon Musk, former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, who worked north of 120 hours a week.

How do they do it? The truth is — it wasn’t sustainable. Elon was on the verge of crying in interviews during that period, and admittedly fraying at the seams. Marissa remembers those long hours like it was time spent as a hostage.
