  • When Steve Jobs resigned as Apple's CEO in August 2011, he handpicked Tim Cook as his successor.

    當賈伯斯於 2011 年 8 月辭去蘋果公司執行長職務時,他親自挑選了蒂姆・庫克作為他的繼任者。

  • Cook had been with the company since 1998, and earned the reputation of being an operations mastermind,

    庫克從 1998 年開始便在該公司工作,並獲得了營運天才的名聲,

  • dramatically reducing Apple's on-hand inventory and delivering products to customers faster using a technique called "just-in-time manufacturing".


  • But his greatest work has been performed over the past decade as CEO, when Apple's popularity and growth exploded in a way almost no one expected.


  • This has led many people to wonder about the man behind the machineTim Cook,


  • and what he does on a daily basis to stay at the top of his game.


  • So, in this video, we're gonna take a peek behind Apple's curtain, and find out what a day in the life of Tim Cook is really like.


  • This is Greg with Apple Explained, and this was the last place topic of the previous voting poll, which means I shouldn't even be making this video.

    我是 Apple Explained 的 Greg,而這個主題是上次投票的最後一名,這表示我甚至不應該製作這部影片。

  • But I already started working on the script, so I'm just putting this out as a short bonus video for you guys.


  • Alright, now, let's start with Cook's morning routine.


  • He wakes up at 3:45 a.m., and spends about an hour going through some of the 700 to 800 emails he receives each day.

    他在凌晨 3:45 起床,並花費大約一個小時的時間閱讀他每天 700-800 封新電子郵件的一部分。

  • In an interview with Axios, he explained why, saying,

    在接受 Axios 採訪時,他解釋了原因。

  • "I like to ... go through user comments and things like that, and sort of focus on the external people that are so important to us."


  • For breakfast, Cook typically enjoys two scrambled egg whites, turkey bacon, and sugar-free cereal with unsweetened almond milk.


  • Then, around 5 a.m., he goes to an undisclosed gym that's located outside Apple's headquartersfor maximum privacyand works out for an hour.

    然後在凌晨 5 點左右,他會去位於蘋果總部外一個未公開地點的健身房,在擁有最大隱私的狀況下鍛鍊一個小時。

  • In fact, Tim Cook is a self-described "fitness nut", claiming his regular exercise routine helps keep stress at bay,


  • which is probably important for someone in charge of running the most valuable company in the world.


  • Next, Cook visits a local Starbucks to read through more emails before heading to Apple Park.


  • Once he arrives at the office, his day is typically filled with meetings.


  • And despite his laid-back demeanor, Cook is known to have little patience for unprepared staffers.


  • In fact, workers who are scheduled to meet with Cook are first screened by their managers to make sure they're ready to answer all of his questions.


  • And Cook is known for asking quite a few.


  • Steve Doil, who used to work on Cook's operations team, said,

    曾經在庫克營運團隊工作的 Steve Doil 說:

  • "He'll ask you 10 questions. If you answer them right, he'll ask you 10 more. If you do this for a year, he'll start asking you 9 questions. Get one wrong, and he'll ask you 20 and then 30."

    「他會問你十個問題,如果你回答正確,他就會再問你十題。如果你這樣做了一年,他就會開始問你九個問題。 錯一個,他就會問你 20 題,然後是 30 題。」

  • One staffer who wasn't fully prepared was quickly dismissed by Cook, who simply said, "Next," as he flipped the page of his meeting agenda.


  • But I think the story that best illustrates Cook's expectation of excellence is during a meeting about Apple's poor performance in China.


  • Cook said, "This is really bad, someone should be in China driving this."


  • Thirty minutes into the meeting, he looked at Sabih Khan, an operations executive, and said, with no emotion, "Why are you still here?"

    會議進行 30 分鐘後,他看向營運主管 Sabih Khan、毫無感情地問:「你怎麼還在這裡?」

  • Khan immediately stood up, drove to San Francisco International Airport, and, without any luggage, booked a one-way ticket to China.

    Khan 立即起身、驅車前往舊金山國際機場,然後在沒有行李的狀況下,訂了一張去中國的單程票。

  • For lunch, Cook is known to stop by the company cafeteria and sit with random employees.


  • This allows him to hear from people in the company who might offer unique perspective outside the bubble of Apple's executive team.


  • Cook is also known to be the last person to leave the office, arriving home just in time to be in bed by 8:45.

    庫克出了名總是最後一個離開公司的人,到家時正好可以趕上 8:45 就寢。

  • That means he works about 12 hours a day while sleeping for 7.

    這表示他每天工作約 12 小時、睡 7 小時。

  • So, while Tim Cook has been criticized for being a much different CEO than Steve Jobs, the two have a surprising amount of characteristics in common,


  • like working long hours, focusing on their health, holding their employees to the highest standard, and always maintaining a balanced perspective on Apple by staying in touch with their everyday customers.


  • So, that is a day in the life of Tim Cook.


  • If you'd like to help decide which topics I cover in the future, don't forget to subscribe, and I'll see you in the next video.
