    Inhaltsangabe

    In 2010, world-renowned innovation expert Clayton M. Christensen gave a powerful speech to the Harvard Business School's graduating class. Drawing upon his business research, he offered a series of guidelines for finding meaning and happiness in life. He used examples from his own experiences to explain how high achievers can all too often fall into traps that lead to unhappiness.

    The speech was memorable not only because it was deeply revealing but also because it came at a time of intense personal reflection: Christensen had just overcome the same type of cancer that had taken his father's life. As Christensen struggled with the disease, the question "How do you measure your life?" became more urgent and poignant, and he began to share his insights more widely with family, friends, and students.

    In this groundbreaking book, Christensen puts forth a series of questions: How can I be sure that I'll find satisfaction in my career? How can I be sure that my personal relationships become enduring sources of happiness? How can I avoid compromising my integrity - and stay out of jail? Using lessons from some of the world's greatest businesses, he provides incredible insights into these challenging questions.

    How Will You Measure Your Life? is full of inspiration and wisdom, and will help students, midcareer professionals, and parents alike forge their own paths to fulfillment.

    Amazing

    I usually don’t write any reviews - this is my first. But this book is truly amazing! Can’t recommend it enough! Especially the second half really spoke to me.

    Excellent, insightful, intuitive, practical

    Phenomenal book that provides a framework, a manifesto, a general theory on how to live a fulfilling life. Had this book on my reading list for at least 2 years, but was - like so often - put off by the title. Yet, after reading "How Will You Measure Your Life?" I can say that the book more than delivered on the promises implied by its title.

    The book is great on so many levels. It provides hands on theory that is applicable to everyday life. The theory is based on a mix of business theory and the personal life experience of a professor and father. Overall I felt the book was incredibly authentic and honest. I consider it among the best books on career advice, although it is not necessarily classified as such and has a much broader scope. If you are interested in "big picture" career advice other outstanding books which supplement this work are "Grit" by Duckworth and "So Good They Can't Ignore You" by C. Newport.

    God?

    Very disappointing ending when the author starts to talk about the religion, god, pray etc. It weakens the power of persuasion the author tries to build along the book.

    okayish, but too mainstream and few ideas

    I enjoyed the overall story, but yet it does not give enough advice on how to do better on an individual level
