How Will You Measure Your Life - Clayton Christensen

How Will You Measure Your Life - Clayton Christensen

Book

Short summary of what I thought about Clayton Christensen's book, "How Will You Measure Your Life."


This is easily my most recommended book.

Yes, it's an ungainly title and it sounds very self-helpy, but it's the good kind of self-help (whatever that means). Clayton Christensen presents a framework for living a good life based on tested theories, and he uses a series of interesting business case studies to support this framework. Pretty well crafted!

The three key things that you need to think about?

  • How can you be happy in your career?
  • How can you ensure that you have strong relationships that are a source of happiness
  • And finally, how can you be sure you'll stay out of jail (surprising, I know 🙂)

It's a fairly short read, and will definitely provide great food for thought in living an examined life. Well worth it.
