Sometimes back I watched a youtube video of a talk from this professor named Clay Christensen describing business matter like “how milkshake gets your job done.” a theory that make sense from different perspective on how things fit together to make an idea works.
I thought he’s a good speaker, and somehow I got linked to a Tedx video with him featured on the topic “how will you measure your life?”
(i read a blogpost by hbr regarding to @aaronsw here, looking at the background of the author(James Allworth), co author a book called “how will you measure your life?”, and google returned the result of my search with this Tedx video)
this video is triggering thoughts again. Although the last part might not be as easy to accept(when he mentioned about God), still it is still somehow making sense and trigger my inner feeling/thoughts.
all along, I never want to be a fan of fame-seeker/achievement-hungry/money-centered. I might has shifted/gotten influenced a little bit sometimes, but I tried hard to stay sane again and again. because deep down my heart, I know this will not work for my life.
this video stimulates the thoughts on how will i measure my life? as if there is a certain happiness I want to achieve. is it a highly skilled me, business-able me, family-man me or something else? I look at the mirror again and rethink how I am fit in these different lenses. I would give it a five minutes, or longer.
Some post relating to Clay Christensen by Jason Fried:
someone can’t be taught until they’re ready to learn

while ideas ultimately can be so powerful, they begin as fragile, barely formed thoughts, so easily missed, so easily compromised, so easily just squished.
