On #7: Even a CEO is Still Only Human

I gained a better understanding upon review of the seven most common surprises for new CEO's. I also favor the idea of servant leadership, which the seven most common surprises for new CEO's prompted me to consider. It would be difficult to remain humble when in charge of an entire organization, however, it is important to have reasonable expectations going into the job, of oneself, and your capabilities as the seven surprises explains.
Can a CEO ever really leave the office and business concerns behind and not be thinking and worrying 24/7, especially during the first several years?

Even a CEO is not Omnipotent

Porter's 7 surprises is quite a helpful insight into the CEO's role.
Many CEOs in my country fail in their duties because they consider themselves omnipotent, omnipresent and, yes, omniscient. They fail to realise the importance of the support of those they lead.
