How will you measure your life

  1. 1. DON’T RESERVE YOUR BEST BUSINESS THINKING FOR YOUR CAREER AUTHOR CLAYTON M. CHRISTENSEN BY THAYUMANAVAN S K
  2. 2. THREE QUESTIONS TO MEASURE YOUR LIFE 1. HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT I WILL BE HAPPY IN MY CAREER ? 2. HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT MY RELATIONSHIPS WITH MY SPOUSE AND FAMILY BECOME AN ENDURING SOURCE OF HAPPINESS? 3. HOW CAN I BE SURE I’LL STAY OUT OF JAIL?
  3. 3. HOW TO BE HAPPY IN OUR CAREER? THE POWERFUL MOTIVATORS ARE THE OPPURTUNITY TO LEARN GROW IN RESPONSIBILITIES CONTRIBUTE TO OTHERS RECOGNITINON FOR ACHEIVEMENTS
  4. 4. MANY MBA STUDENTS HAVE A WRONG NOTION THAT BUSINESS MEANS BUYING, SELLING, AND INVESTING IN COMPANIES. DOING DEALS DOESN’T YIELD THE DEEP REWARD THAT COME FROM BUILDING UP PEOPLE MANAGEMENT CAN HELP LEARN AND GROW, TAKE RESPOSIBILITY AND BE RECOGNISED FOR THE ACHEIVEMENT AND CONTRIBUTE TO SUCCESS OF THE TEAM
  5. 5. HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT MY RELATIONSHIPS WITH MY SPOUSE AND FAMILY BECOME AN ENDURING SOURCE OF HAPPINESS? CREATSE A STRATERGY FOR LIFE MANY HBS PEOLPLE ARE UNHAPPY, DIVORCED, AND ALIENATED FORM THEIR CHILDREN PROPER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT THEY DIDN’T KEEP THEIR PURPOSE OF LIFE IN FRONT WHILE DECIDING HOW TO SPEND THEIR TIME, TALENT, AND ENERGY.
  6. 6. CREATE A CULTURE WHEN THERE IS A LITTLE AGREEMENT BETWEEN BOTH THE AXES USE POWER TOOLS- COERCION, THREATS, AND PUNISHMENTS TO SECURE CO-OPERATION AND THEREBY CREATING A CULTURE. PARENTS CAN USE THIS POWER TOOLS TO EXTRACT CO-OPERATION FROM CHILDREN AND TO CREATE CULTURE. THIS HAS TO BE INCULCATED IN THE FORMATIVE YEARS BEFORE TEEN PERIOD
  7. 7. HOW CAN I BE SURE I’LL STAY OUT OF JAIL? MAIN REASON FOR THIS TRAGEDY IS “JUST THIS ONCE” IT IS EASIER TO HOLD TO YOUR PROMISES 100% OF THE TIME RATHER THAN 98% COMMITMENT, CONSISTENCY, DETERMINATION AND STRONG ETHICAL VALUES ARE REQUIRED REMEMBER THE IMPORTANCE OF HUMILITY – SELF RESPECT
  8. 8. CHOOSE THE RIGHT YARD STICK DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE LEVEL OF INDIVIDUAL PROMINENCE WE ACHIEVED WORRY ABOUT THE INDIVIDUALS WE HAVE HELPED BECOME BETTER PEOPLE WE MUST THINK ABOUT THE METRIC BY WHICH OUR LIVES WILL BE JUDGED AND MAKE A RESOLUTION TO LIVE EVERYDAY SO THAT IN THE END OUR LIVES WILL BE JUDGED SUCCESS
