3.0 out of 5 stars A short read but essential tips, 24 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Managing Oneself (Harvard Business Review Classics) (Paperback)
This book is only about 60 pages (large prints and small format) and it summarizes clearly concepts often found in self-development books.

It encourages us to know our strengths, our modalities (how we perform best) and values. It urges us to take responsibility for our relationships, in terms of how we chose them and nurture them.
In order to identify strengths and gain personal insights, it introduces the feedback analysis tool: "Whenever you make a key decision or take a key action, write down what you expect will happen. Nine or twelve months later, compare the actual results with your expectations."
It helps us frame our personal contribution by answering the following question: "Where and how can I achieve results that will make a difference within the next year and a half ?" The answer must balance several things. First, the results should be hard to achieve but still within reach. Second, the results should be meaningful. Third, the results should be visible."

Finally, the book ends with advice on how to deal with the second half of our life, during retirement.
