I listened to this book on Audible and found I had to stop and take notes periodically. This book has helped me rethink the challenges before me and to recommit to being a better person.
This book gave me the opportunity to evaluate what is truly important in my life and gave me a good perspective on how to balance the work vs life challenge. Many thanks to the authors and the useful tools provided in this book. Well worth the time spent listening and I know I will be listening to it again soon.
Thought provoking as Christensen, Allworth and Dillion share how and why to construct a purposeful and meaningful life.
He and they have changed my life, and I will pass lessons learned to my beloved sons.
This book teaches you great theories behind business strategy and marketing and likens them to life strategy. I'm thinking about it at work and at home. Definitely worth the listen/read, especially if you are a business enthusiast.
I love listening and reading books about mindset, entreprenuership, management, leadership, self improvement, and empowerment.
No I would not recommend it unless you own a company, I was expecting the book to be more about strategies to help work out how I want to measure my life.
Nope, nothing of value to me
Actionable techniques to evaluate your decisions, goals, and direction in life.
Presented in an academic tone, but with relatable stories and anecdotes.
I got so much out of this book that I immediately recommended it to my family, a handful of close friends, and I may re-read it!
Clay Christensen is a wise and thoughtful man. And this application of business principles to career and life is an interesting and provocative idea. In essence, Professor Christensen argues that we should live a life of purpose, plan our careers as we would a business strategy, and then be ready to adapt to the unexpected.
In some cases, I found myself distracted by some of the differences between a business strategy and a life strategy. Yet, I think part of the value added here is putting life and career planning into terms that senior executives find comfortable and familiar.
The reading is nice, though I sometimes found my mind wandering. Not sure if that's me, the reading, or the content. But it was a great use of time, with advice I intend to follow (but, like most people, probably won't!).
Yes. I think this book has some tried and true principles that one must listen to multiple times to apply.
There are many ideas from this book that I will remember. The idea that stuck out to me the most was Christensen's resource theory, the idea that we have a limited amount of time and money to dedicate to our priorities. I was startled to see the disconnect between my where I spend my resources and what I believe are my priorities.
