couldn't put it down. something I'll read again. wished I had reread it years ago.
This book challenge what success usually means and what really should means to everyone of us. A book to be read several times to remember what is most important in life.
The book is written for business students, helping them to find purpose and integrity in their careers while also finding satisfaction in their personal and spiritual lives.
I recommend the book for anyone in any vocation. The principles are sound and universally applicable.
I loved this listen. I have heard Clayton Christensen live at an LDS fireside and the book was just as good but more goodies in there. May we all seek to find our purpose in life and live up to it.
I found solutions to previously un answered questions. I can live a more fulfilling life and make a greater contribution to others.
So many business and success books focus just on performance, and hard, quantifiable evidence and business related performance. These books often leave out the fact or ignore the reality that people are a part of the lives of other people. This book expertly addresses both sides of success.
The audio format allowed me to listen while working out. There were a few areas where I would have like to have re-read, so maybe this book would be a good one to have on both audio and tablet or book format.
The lessons on how to attempt to integrate a high performance professional life with a high quality personal life.
Like driving with cruise control, he got me through the parts when I would have taken my foot off the gas.
The realization that this book could only have been written after a life of reflection and consideration.
Wish I read it when I was a young father - although my daughter turned out wonderful anyway!
Ideas were shared that caused me to re-evaluate my approach to working with people.
Jeff read it as though he was the one who researched the concepts.
Amazing insight for planning a life that will count at its end.
Christensen and his coauthors do a fabulous job of applying business models and theories to mapping out one's personal life. It's brilliantly put together - I listened on a road trip and furiously jotted down notes every time I stopped. I'm planning to put in practice many of the strategies they outline for wisely planning out a life that will be rich in what matters most instead of looking at climbing the corporate ladder as "success."
Woodman was a wonderful narrator - clear and easy to listen to.
