From the Publisher
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 personalrelationships 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.
