Book: How will you measure your life? (by James Allworth, Karen Dillon, Clayton Christensen)

 Hoy os quiero hablar de un libro con mucho jugo que extraer, muchos outcomes, mucho que pensar... Se trata del libro How will you measure your life?  de James Allworth, Karen Dillon y Clayton Christensen.

Precisamente Clayton Christensen ya publicó un artículo con el mismo título, How will you measure your life? , en la revista Harvard Business Review de Julio-Agosto 2010.

Para acabar con este post de recomendación del libro How will you measure your life? (by James Allworth, Karen Dillon, Clayton Christensen), os dejo con un breve resumen del mismo:

"How do you lead a fulfilling life? That profound question animates this book of inspiration and insight from world-class business strategist and bestselling author of The Innovator’s Dilemma, Clayton Christensen.

After beating a heart attack, advanced-stage cancer and a stroke in three successive years, the world-renowned innovation expert and author of one of the best selling and most influential business books of all time – The Innovator’s Dilemma – Clayton M. Christensen delivered a short but powerful speech to the Harvard Business School graduating class. He presented a set of personal guidelines that have helped him find meaning and happiness in his life – a challenge even the brightest and most motivated of students find daunting.

Akin to The Last Lecture in its revelatory perspective following life-altering events, that speech subsequently became a hugely popular article in the Harvard Business Review and is now a groundbreaking book, putting forth a series of questions and models for success that have long been applied in the world of business, but also can be used to find cogent answers to pressing life questions: How can I be sure that I’ll find satisfaction in my career? How can I be sure that my relationships with my spouse, my family and my close friends become enduring sources of happiness? How can I avoid compromising my integrity (and stay out of jail)?

How Will You Measure Your Life? is a highly original, surprising book from a singular business figure. It’s a book sure to inspire and educate readers – companies and individuals, students of business, mid-career professionals, and even parents – the world over."
