    Q. Do your children [Connor, 15, Cassius, 10, and Cyrus, five] like your work? A. Yeah, they love it. I’ve always tried to build in a “wow” factor, because when I was growing up I remember being blown away by the natural history museum in Leeds. There were these stuffed Bengal tigers and tanks with fish in them, and I wanted to make art like that. Art is childish and childlike. Brancusi said: “When we are no longer children we are already dead.”

    I learned to delegate from a young age. Actually removing myself from the office has helped me look for the next big venture. I try to exercise every day. Manage the BlackBerry, don’t let it manage you. The key is to do it in bursts and not to let it dominate your day. Speak to people – I do get a lot of emails every day and try to answer as many as I can; but I also believe that you need to speak to people. It can save you and them a lot of time. And write it down – I carry notebooks wherever I go to jot down thoughts and notes. You can’t beat pen and paper.

    ~ Richard Branson
