Recommending “How Will You Measure Your Life?” by Clayton Christensen

I’ve always found the intersection between business concepts and personal lives an interesting place to study. Unfortunately, I think a lot of business literature seems to want people to live one way at work and another way at home.

Recently I read, twice, a book called How Will You Measure Your Life? by Clayton Christensen. I really enjoyed it. He explained seven or eight powerful business concepts and then applied each one to an individual’s career, relationships, and/or behaviors. It was simple and powerful.

I believe that useful lessons flow from our activities at work to our activities at home and back and forth like the waves over a wall that is beneath the surface of the water. We don’t have separate lives. We have one life with separate moments in the day. I think this book helps effectively link one part of our life to another.
