Description

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.

Clayton's General Theory of Life

Any additional comments?

Clay Christensen's work culminates in generalization of the principals he first described in his book The Innovator's Solution. This time his focus moves from disruptive business models to the application of the "Job to be done" theory on a personal level. Narration is illustrated with some of the same business case studies used in his previous books, but is tied back to the personal level by stories and experiences from Clay's own life.

I have always admired the motto: "There's nothing more practical then a good theory." This book certainly delivers an excellent lens to look at your life and gives you good grip to steer it where you want to. Highly recommended!

Common Sense, yet inspiring and eye-opening

Any additional comments?

Clayton Christensen is THE guy when it comes to innovative thinking. He was the most influential management expert in 2011. THIS is the book that perhaps has defined his path. The nuggets of gold within this text are both earth-shatteringly simplistic and amazingly insightful. You will not leave this book without at least ten excellent ways to improve what you're doing on a daily basis. It's not a self help book, it's an introspective tome with huge insight.

Must Read!

Cliche title, I know. But it couldn't be more true. Everyone should read How You Measure Your Life by Clayton Christensen. A fascinating and unique approach to self-help. For extremely logical people, like me, I connected with it on so many levels! And learned something about business theory as well!

Christensen is a role model in all aspects of life

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Christensen is awesome! He is a great teacher, author, speaker, husband, father, and man of God. I have a strong appreciation for how he weaves his professional and personal life together into a powerful call to action. Read or listen to his other books, too!

The real deal. Takes thought and work.

Negative reviews did not think about what their purpose could be.
Be prepared to think and ponder about what you want your life to be.

Great Manifesto of how to live one's life

Great work with emphasis on long term relationships and not short term relationships and focus on family is the key message of the book. Must read a classic

Thoughtful and practical

Christensen is a Harvard business professor--not the usual intro for a book on values and wisdom and even faith. But he managed to use business models (which he explains well and have some cool insights all by themselves) to discuss how to live a wiser, healthier life.

Well written, coming from his heart, this is a good read for all humans--not just business people.

Excellent and insightful!

This book didn't amazing job of combining examples from the business world to the deep situations and concerns of our lives. These business model examples provided a very clear way to see strategies for improving career, relationships, and parenting.

Review

Would you listen to How Will You Measure Your Life? again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this book again. For those who are wondering about work/life balance and are interested in the case study method, this is an excellent book. Professor Christensen does a great job of communicating his class into book form.

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.
