A thinking man's version of Covey and Collins that is deeper and profound -- not a fluff book at all!, May 15, 2012

From the world’s leading thinker on innovation and New York Times bestselling author of The Innovator’s Dilemma, Clayton M How Will You Measure Your Life? available on August 05 2018 from Indigo for 31.99
Christensen is one of the deepest thinkers and most thoughtful people I have had the pleasure to meet or hear present. Those traits of deep integrity, thought, consideration come through in this book. However, the title will be misleading as this is not another self help book, nor it is an attempt for Christensen to break into the Tuesday with Morrie crowd. Rather, Christensen turns his considerable intellect and experience to perhaps the most fundamental question of all -- why are we here and how do we know we are making a difference. The book is exceptional in its combination of deep feeling that is personal and experiential alongside deeper thought and business experience.This is a business view of life, not in terms of profit or loss, but more in terms of ideals, ethics, integrity and brutal honesty about yourself, who you are and where you are going. Such deep moral subject matter could be dry and preachy, but Christensen and his co-authors are anything but...

Topic Title Summary Views
This book grew out of Christensen's address to the HBS Class of 2010. When they entered the school our economy was strong and their ambitions could be limitless. Then came an economic tailspin that we've named the 'Great Recession.' His address to the graduates, and the focus of this book, centered on how to apply his principles to their personal lives.His first key point is that when people ask what he thinks they should do, he has learned to rarely directly answer their question. Instead, he runs the question through one of his models involving an industry quite different from their own. Then, more often than not, they'll say "I get it,' and answer their own question more insight fully than he believes he could have.On the last day of class Christensen asks his students to apply the models he's presented during the course to themselves to answer three questions: 1)How can I be sure I'll be happy in my career? 2)How can I be certain my relationships with my...

So many self-help book books share the same approach: "Here's what you have to do to be happy." But with so many self-help books, how does one choose the right approach? What's the guide?Here's where this book shines. Instead of telling you what you have to do, the authors present a completely different strategy. They present the idea of the "theory." Basically, every problem or situation can be looked at through one or more theories. But a theory doesn't give general answers. It provides a specific way of looking at a situation, and gives an answer specific to the theory.This means that you get an answer that's a lot more useful than the one-size-fits-none platitudes that fill most self help books. But applying a theory to any situation requires discipline and clarity of thinking. So this book provides the mental tools necessary to properly use theories.Highly recommended for people interested in improving their lives -- not by easy answers, but by...
