CZ is a role model for many. And even if you are not his fan, undoubtedly the results of his activities deserve respect. Binance is the largest cryptocurrency exchange. This week Changpeng Zhao shared his time management rules.

The creator of Binance noted that it is important for him to be able to say "no" to uninteresting or inefficient things, this saves time. He also likes multiplicity, tries to hold all meetings in 15 minutes or less. He also prefers online shopping, does not like to cook and clean at home, does not watch TV and TikTok.
