What does a CEO do?

I overheard someone the other day telling their friend that there was no way their CEO deserved a million dollars a year.  "What does our CEO even do anyway, " she said?  "I wish I could come in late, play golf all day, and have no responsibilities.  I would do the job for $500,000 and do it better than him..."

I wish I could say I turned and scolded her about how her CEO probably was at a networking event while she was with her family, works most weekends, including holidays, and never shuts off the pressure of running a business, but truth be known, I didn't know if that was the answer.
