CEO Blog Nation recently reached out to Amjad to share his thoughts on taking a break and recharging as a CEO.

In his 10+ years as an Entrepreneur and CEO he has learned how to balance the insane schedules and demanding travel with taking care of himself and his health. His secret is to give himself time for exercise and meditation by taking long walks and staying off the grid while doing so.

I’ll add a few tips I have learned from Amjad over the years working together:

Eat to Support your Health

I often see Amjad snack on mandarin oranges, especially while traveling. Making sure to get your vitamins (especially C and D) supports your immune system and keeps you from getting sick while traveling. We also stock the office with healthy snacks like Almonds, and he regularly brings fresh fruit to the office to share with the team.

Take Small Breaks to Recharge

Take a few minutes throughout your day to breathe, relax, and drink your tea (or your hot beverage of choice). Even though most of his days are packed with meetings and demands, he makes sure to leave slots of 15 minutes open in his schedule to take a breather and drink some tea.

Family Time is Important

When you’re with your family turn off the distractions. Our work culture, and especially start-up work can be 24/7/365 and that commitment from our team one of the things that has made Algo.ai so successful. However, as a leader, Amjad makes it very clear that he understands the importance of personal and family time. After all, if you can’t enjoy the fruits of your successful business with your friends and family what is the point.

In this special guest feature, Amjad Hussain, founder and CEO of Algo.ai, observes that whereas 20 years ago, labels were able to flood stores with CDs in the knowledge surplus inventory would inevitably sell over time, doing so now could lead to huge losses. As such, companies are increasingly turning to new smart technology which harnesses the power of machine learning AI to accurately predict future demand using existing data.
