    Wish I knew this at the beginning of my career

    This book caused me to think about some bigger picture concepts and there were many things which I wish I knew at the beginning of my career. For example, Chapter 8, The Schools of Experience, talks about deciding what job you want and the experiences the ideal candidate for that position would need to be the obvious best choice for that position, then driving your entire career to acquire that experience until you finally end up where you wanted to be. This means sacrificing money, security, and prestige until you get to where you want to be. That is a career example, but as you would expect, fulfillment and family is a focus throughout the book.

    So Much More than the HBR Article

    I first read the arcticle by Cristensen in Reader's Digest and was fascinated by topic. At that time I was in a crossroad of my life. The article helped alot. Because the article is so powerful, it let me wondering if there is anything more in the book. That is why I waited long enough to read the book. And, the answer is yes, there is so much more in this book than the article. One of thing that surprises me greatly is that I actually learn a lot from the business analogy about business. My educational background is engineering, so I guess I do have some gap in my business knowledge. This book want to teach us on how to have a happy and meaningful life. It does not give us answers, rather it gives us a framework on how to make a happy and meaningful life. I think this book is a must read for every person.

    A literary masterpiece

    A truly influential book that makes one promptly reflect into their own professional and personal lives. Tested theories of the business world so vividly applied to the family world. And all brought together to provide a measure of ones life. How do you measure your life anyway?
