Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently engaged in a conversation with Chicago Booth Dean Madhav Rajan. The top boss revealed what he does to relax and achieve balance in life.

“Reading Russian authors and watching cricket are the two things that I find most relaxing because they are so against the grain of what I do every day. But the other thing, quite honestly, is to take the few moments that I have, the few hours that I am doing something with my daughters and be actually present. It’s probably my biggest struggle because we, as a tech industry, have done a fantastic job of creating the ability to be always on, always connected to everything in the world. For me, solitude and being present give me a tremendous amount of renewed energy. So, when I come back to being connected and to doing my work, I have a renewed sense of purpose.”
