Karen Dillon is the former editor of the Harvard Business Review, a best-selling author, and a renowned keynote speaker. In How Will You Measure Your Life? Dillon walks us through Clayton Christensen’s groundbreaking business theories and explains how they can be applied to our personal lives.
Often, we let our careers happen to us rather than taking control of the outcome. In this chapter, Dillon explains that it’s important to discover what truly motivates us and other key factors to help us find the happiness we deserve in our careers.
In this chapter, Dillon introduces us to legendary author Rita McGrath who walks us through real-life examples of businesses that embraced emergent strategies or failed to plan, and how this all relates to our personal career choices. Along with the help of entrepreneur Patrick Chun, this chapter explores the importance of discovery-driven planning and when to deviate from our intended strategy.
Who doesn’t love milkshakes? Let’s listen to Clayton Christensen’s former colleague Bob Moesta as he explains how we hire products for jobs in our personal lives and how the “jobs to be done” theory is a critical theory that can be applied to our relationships.
It's easy to focus on our career now, knowing that our family and friends will always be there. However, in this chapter, Dillon reveals that's not the case and how long-term family investments are the most important, even if the payoff is not immediate
Just this once... It's an easy phrase that we often use daily. But Dillon and Christensen are here to warn of the perils of marginal thinking and how doing something, "just this once" can lead us to a life we don't want.
Although it may seem endless, our lives will eventually come to a close. So let's recap the key takeaways to help us measure our own lives so we can live more fulfilled lives.
