I walked into the boardroom at 7:55 A.M., five minutes early. The senior management team was already seated at the long conference table. Some glanced up, others looked away. The were not happy to see me. They knew what was coming.
I ate not breakfast that day. I didn’t want blood draning from my brain to my bowels. I like tha thungry, focused feeling, that sense of physical lightness and mental clarity when I work a boardroom.
