I like this concept of “marking the territory” – not like a dog, but as students of consciousness. It is so easy to get caught up in the robotic rush of repetition, day in and day out. I read in Fortune a few months ago about how AmEx has “dramatically restructured its CEO pay”:http://money.cnn.com/magazines/fortune/fortune_archive/2008/01/21/102659595/index.htm for Kenneth Chenault. In brief, he gets a relatively low base pay, and then stock options (not restricted stock) if he meets performance criteria over an unusually long 6-year period. It’s worth noting that those options are worthwhile only if the stock price is preserved; there is no guaranteed price on them. I hope other companies will begin to pull back the reins on the “exorbitant CEO pay”:http://www.forbes.com/2008/03/07/executive-pay-hearings-lead-comp-cx_mk_0307compensation.html packages that have become too common. Here was my early take on CEO pay: “Beach Walk 129 – Math with Rox”:http://www.beachwalks.tv/2006/07/01/beach-walk-129-math-with-rox/
