Uncomfortable Truths About Being a Great CEO: A Conversation With Michael Ovitz

When you’re the CEO of a company, you deal with enormous pressure knowing that you’re the last line of defense.

My entire day is about putting out fires.

I have to deal with things like HR issues, client problems, even roof leaks in our Chattanooga office…

And I love it.

Really enjoyed sitting down with Michael Ovitz at Summit to talk about what it takes to be a CEO and running a business in a “post-internet” world. Check it out and leave me your $.02 in the comments!

  1. Thanks Gary, this one has impacted me personally more than any other vid you've done. It's reassuring to know I'm not the only CEO who thinks about slitting their wrists on a daily basis, that this grind is normal, and that to persevere is actually the win.

  2. “When your stomach and your head have met each other” best quote. I have just got that point! Thank you so much

  3. Million Dollar Income Potential in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting to play than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself. I found chess to be so repetitive that any clever player could easily master the moves to a point they could even play against opponents blindfolded. It is for this reason I invented a game where every game is always a new challenge and exciting to play.

    Since Ruvol is yet “unpublished,” I am extra careful in fully disclosing how it is exactly played, lest it might be “plagiarized.” The “BEST PREVIEW” I can give, more than enough to appreciate how the game is played, is as follows:

    1. Ruvol is almost somewhat played like chess. [I invented Ruvol primarily to give chess a direct “apple-to-apple” competition.]
    2. Like chess, Ruvol is a board game for two players.
    3. If the chess board is square in shape containing 64 squares in all, the Ruvol board is rectangular with more number of squares in it.
    4. If each chess player has 16 pieces, each Ruvol player has same number of pieces as well.
    5. If each type of chess piece moves in a distinct way, the Ruvol types of pieces move in distinct ways, too.
    6. If to win the chess game requires tactical skills or strategic thinking, the more the Ruvol requires of it.
    7. If the way to win chess is to checkmate the opponent’s king, the way to win Ruvol is entirely different but far more exciting and challenging.

    In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$5 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale is US$40M.

    I AM SELLING MY COPYRIGHT TO RUVOL.

    For the reason that I don’t have enough resources to produce, distribute, and market Ruvol on a global scale, I find it “wiser” to simply sell my copyright.

    If you are interested to buy my copyright, email me your BEST PRICE OFFER—[the copyright going to one with the highest reasonable bid]. Or if you know someone willing to buy my copyright, you are entitled to a 10% commission.

    On the other hand, if you have a “much better option” in mind than what I am proposing here, don’t hesitate to let me know.

    Thanks and God bless.
