Penne Cole's thoughts on food, travel and more
One of the best things about being in business school is that I have access to a fantastic library full of business books. This one, placed on the new bookshelf, caught my eye. Clayton Christensen’s “How Will You Measure Your Life” was thought-provoking to say the least. Most of us are caught up in the rat race, trying to go further, better, higher. Trying to get rich(er). We tend to tell ourselves that our family will always be there, that they will support us in our quest, that we are doing this for them, so that they can have a better life. But the real question is, when we get where we want to go (and is there ever an end in sight? Will anything be enough to truly satisfy us?), will our family still be patiently waiting in the wings?
Chistensen’s book, based on his speech to a graduating Harvard Business School class, gives us food for thought on how to find satisfaction in our careers, how to keep our personal relationships at the forefront and ensure that they are a lasting source of happiness, and how to avoid compromising our integrity. In a world of rogue traders and Ponzi schemes, this book provides a glimpse of the bright future that should be.
