Ram Charan Business Consultant

I was spellbounded when I read this story on CNN money about Ram Charan. His name might give a very different impression, however this professor turned freelance consultant is world’s most influential and probably has access to most important boardrooms across the globe.

Here is what his typical schedule looks like:

“I go to India on the Friday of the week before Thanksgiving. I am Sunday morning in Bombay. Monday morning I am in Delhi. Wednesday I’m in Bombay. Thursday I’m in Bangalore. Saturday I’m in Trivandrum. Wednesday I’m in Johannesburg. Friday morning, at seven, I am in New York. I have a two-hour meeting with a CEO who has flown in to see me. I have two more meetings and I fly out that night to Dubai. I am in Dubai on Sunday and Monday, then I come back here. On Thursday night I fly out to Jubail, Saudi Arabia. Then I come back here. Tuesday morning I have a whole-day schedule in New York. Tuesday night I go to Milwaukee. I came from Milwaukee last night. They diverted my plane so I had to stay in Pittsburgh. I had a meeting this morning in Philadelphia. I had three meetings here in the afternoon. And I’m here tomorrow, with GE. Then an hour-and-a-half phone call. Then I’m going out tomorrow night to West Palm Beach. Monday morning I have a breakfast meeting in New York. And then I’m flying out to Perth, Australia.”

Take that for a schedule. Do you want to have such a lifestyle. I highly recommend you read this story on CNN Money.

    Absolutely Mind boggling if the least is to be said.

    Obsession and Passion sometimes overlap each other, what extend of that is good im not to sure. He surely is great at what he does, the journalist was right, he probably finds remorse in working 24/7 – I dont understand where he finds his zeal – i guess sometimes the best mysteries in life are unsolved.

    Thanks a lot for the link – it was inspiring non the less
