A definition of success,
This review is from: Myself and Other More Important Matters (Hardcover)
Ask a 'successful' person how they define success and all too often they can't give an answer. They may have achieved their goals but don't feel any happier than when they were working towards them. Charles Handy is different on two counts - firstly he's very clear on what success means to him and secondly he's had several careers; oil executive, academic and business guru along with a wealth of experience on which to base his opinion. I'm half his age but I'll set out to live the second half of my life in accordance with his wisdom.
Six years on from writing this review I've upped my ranking to 5 stars, I've not re-read the book but I've tried to live by some of Handy's thoughts and I'm more fulfilled as a result.
