How will you measure your life?

Clayton Christensen is a hero of mine since reading The Innovator’s Dilemma some number of years ago.

This short book offers a 20:20 hindsight tour of how to allocate your time to maximize some function of happiness. There’s a particularly interesting section offering a model for why youth unemployment is so high. He characterizes success as having a combination of resources, priorities and processes. He posits that kids have a lot of resources (money, education, moms shuttling kids to piano lessons and soccer) but no clue how to take those resources and process them in to building something for themselves. Priorities help guide which process to use with which resource when.

I’ve seen that enough to believe it.

The unfortunate forays in to God and Faith subtract from an overall excellent, and concise, book.
