    When is 'just enough' enough?

    Everyone wants to succeed. But in a world where corporate CEOs carve out multimillion dollar contracts and Britney Spears is front-page news, society¿s view of success is entirely skewed. Authors and Harvard faculty members Laura Nash and Howard Stevenson take a hard look at idealized celebrity success and adopt a view that is the opposite of the popular attitude that promotes going for the maximum. Instead, they advocate learning how to be satisfied with 'just enough.' Through careful self-examination and structured fulfillment exercises, the authors explain how to obtain success in four main areas of your personal and professional life: happiness, achievement, satisfaction and legacy. Ironically, for a book titled `Just Enough,¿ it supplies way too much verbiage and analysis. But we find the topic timely and well researched. Those who are striving for balance and just the right amount of success will find this self-help book extremely useful, although those who deeply want it all may be tougher to dissuade.

    A difficult but worthwhile journey of self reflection

    I received the book as a gift. Initially, i perceived it as a 'tough' read, but only after you reflect on the power of what is being offered, it began to made sense to me. I identified myself with 'Jane', one of the main characters profiled in the book, focused primarily on career achievements. The book introduces the concept of 'there is more to life' than success in the workplace and that resonated deeply with me. The book makes you stop and think about how fulfilling your life is, where you place priorities, how fast you can move between different aspects of your life. It teaches about the value of 'having enough' and 'Being enough' at a time where we are told 'we can be anything and everything we want to be'. Thank you for this awesome exercise in self-reflection.
