No matter what you think of the energy titan, he has some hard-won knowledge to share about entrepreneurs and their lack of self-care:

Entrepreneurs tend to develop a sense of infallibility, but all too often they neglect their personal lives and their mental health. They don’t allow themselves time to relax or recharge. They don’t work out or watch what they eat. Physical and mental health problems will bring you down just as easily as other factors.

I can understand less self care when a company is in survival mode.

But not once a company is making money.
