Eccentricity is not necessarily a disqualifying factor in the climb to the corner office. Check out some industry standouts and their fixations.

If you don't like the CEO then don't buy the product or stock in the company. Don't watch the show or the movie. Don't listen to the song and don't root for the team or the player. What else can be said ?
So just where does anyone get off on comparing a Creative Genius like Mr Tesla to Mickael Jackson?
They say this - Martha Stewart's world revolves around the tastes and sensibilities of Martha Stewart, and Martha Stewart alone. That's how her operation works, and that's probably why it works. -
But right before that they stated this - Her company posted a $50.7 million loss in the third quarter on revenue of $43.5 million, a 17% decline from a year earlier. -
If she's posting a loss, then her operation is NOT working. That last two sentences should have read like this. - Martha Stewart's world revolves around the tastes and sensibilities of Martha Stewart, and Martha Stewart alone. If that is how she runs her operation, that's probably why it doesn't work. -
What else could you call a 50 million loss in one quarter (result was a third quarter loss mind you)? Apparently if your Martha Stewart, your called a success.
Well, I was going to jump on the bandwagon and talk about MY OCD'S and quirks, however, I'm out of M&M'S, (except the blue ones and I don't eat that color. They make me look like I ate a Smurf), I'm out of tissues, so it goes without saying...no supper tonight unless I use a plastic fork. That won't work because we have no white ones and I can't eat with black utinsels. I'm afraid the dye will rub off onto my teeth or worse, stain my toilet bowl when I use the bathroom. My banker just called, (I think it was him, couldn't find my gloves to wear to answer the phone), and said I've lost several dollars this quarter with my company. Hey, that's o.k. It's my company and I make it work. Now, I have received a letter from The Kennel Club saying my Mastiff can't be neutered, or it will become a "Misstiff."
I can't stand this insanity any longer, so I'm going to go outside and count the brick on my house and if my neighbor has more brick than I do, well, I'll take a few of his and add them to mine. That'll teach him to buy a bigger house!
Compare "Her company posted a %50.7 million loss . . ." with "That's how her operation works, and probably why it works." There's a disconnect in there somewhere between a big loss and the claim that an organization "works."
I'm a perfectionist who devotes attention to my projects; often at the expense of my social relationships. A lot of women were fascinated by my work, but I knew I needed a good woman to help bring balance to my life. If my significant other was into the same things as I; none of the "other" things would get done.
I needed a woman who would put me in check once in a while, to keep me grounded, to let me know when my quirks were getting out of control & none of these guys seemed to have had that as they surround themselves with "yes men". A lot of these guys, like Hughs & Tesla, were apparently afflicted with the same traits as I, but only to a much more severe degree, I suppose it's something like a spectral disorder.
It's so sad that the gift of genius comes at such a high cost, they are seldom ever happy nor do they seem to find true love.
Stuff a sock in it Donald!
What's wrong with you?
President Obama was dealing with a terrible situation on the east coast, and Trump was more worried about Obama's college and passport applications? What a moron. He pulled the same crap over his birth certificate. Hey Trump, let's take a look at the skeleton's in your closet!
Becoming the person God wants you to be
Thats whats success means to me!
