Merkle CEO David Williams Unwinds By Racing Cars (VIDEO)

While some people relax by curling up with a good book or taking a nap, Merkle CEO David Williams chooses to get behind the wheel.

Williams recently told HuffPost Live host Mike Sacks that racing cars allows him to unwind and take a break from the daily pressures of work.

"I need my own release and the thing I love about auto sports and racing Porches is that it's so intense, you cannot think about anything else," Williams said.

With racing, office and home responsibilities, Williams explained that prioritizing is the only way to create a sense of relaxation and stability.

"These words 'work-life balance' come up all the time, but the truth is to some degree I don't really understand what that means," Williams said. "For me there's life balance, but I don't really get the concept of work-life balance. There's things you have to prioritize around, which is work and family and friends and hobbies and interests. Thankfully for me, I've found myself in that wonderful position where there's a lot of alignment among those things."
