How Will You Measure Your Life? by Clayton M. Christensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In this book Clayton Christensen, professor at Harvard Business School, applies organization management theories to answer the question posed by its title. I found the actual business stories very interesting and liked his style of using the successes and failures of those businesses to test and define success in life. He describes how some of the best business minds have some of the worst personal lives, frequently because they take their personal lives for granted and neglect to apply their successful theories of management to relationships with the people who matter most in their lives (family and friends). It is a self reflective book written primarily to help readers see the similarities between the business decisions they make for their companies and their personal lives. It is a short book and a fairly quick read. Highly recommend to business management types.
