    Read this book 3 times from 3 perspectives

    I heard Clayton on the radio talking about the book. FIRST book - They were talking about product / service positioning around the 'job that needs to be done'. That tweaked my interest because it was phrased in a way that I had not heard before. I thought it might help me position myself more clearly to potential clients. And reading the book, ideas have been popping up all over the place.

    SECOND book - it talks about the 'job that needs to be done' in parenting (or in my case, grandparenting:). I know what my kids are getting for their next present. They HAVE to read this book.

    THIRD, there were thoughts on how to live my life.

    Each of the stories in the book can be read from any of these 3 perspectives. I read it this time from the business perspective. I need to go back and read it /think about each part from the children and my life perspectives. Enjoy it.

    In a time characterized by instant meals, instant messages and i

    In a time characterized by instant meals, instant messages and instant gratification, it might seem odd to ask if you’re making instant choices you could come to regret. Yet that’s what innovative business experts Clayton M. Christensen, James Allworth and Karen Dillon want you to explore. Their sobering, enlightening analysis applies causal business theory not just to improve your the prospects for a business, but also your personal and professional life. They explain why causation matters more than correlation, and they deftly show how to use the “if-then” principle in work and life. Christensen concludes this extraordinary book – quite a departure from his seminal writing on innovation – with a personal account of his challenges in practicing its principles. getAbstract warmly recommends this tightly-written, thoughtful guide to making better life choices.

    This is the type of book that should be read and re-read. Chris

    This is the type of book that should be read and re-read. Christensen uses an interesting approach to apply business concepts to personal life and decisions. There are many pearls of wisdom to apply to your career, family, children, and your personal integrity. This is not your "vanilla" life evaluation book. I read this on an airplane and had a great introspective flight - will reference many times as a parent and professional. We all need to think about how we will measure our lives - I want to do this now and not when I am on my deathbed.
