    CEO's seem to have so much time on their hands

    It always amazes me how much time CEO's seem to have on their hands. Since they seem to be able to claim to work 80 hour weeks for their firms, but then they all have time to jump on various boards, lecture circuits, political round tables, etc. Do they all own time machines per chance?
