HOW DO YOU MEASURE THE SUCCESS OF YOUR LIFE?
“I’ve concluded that the metric by which God will assess my life isn’t dollars but the individual people whose lives I’ve touched.” — Clayton M. Christensen
The late Clayton M. Christensen coined the phrase “disruptive innovation” and his work generated enormous revenue for companies that used his research.
Harvard Business Review published a powerful personal ethics article Christensen wrote.
In “How Will You Measure Your Life?“, he says, “Don’t worry about the level of individual prominence you have achieved; worry about the individuals you have helped become better people.”
It’s common for business people to live and die by the numbers and passionately pursue worldly success. But that approach makes it highly possible to overlook the true metric by which our lives will ultimately be judged.
I hope this message gives you a renewed perspective about what really matters. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
Happy Valentine’s Day. I pray you will reframe your view of success and love ❤️ people well!
Love others like we have been taught in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8:
“Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, is not boastful, is not arrogant, is not rude, is not self-seeking, is not irritable, and does not keep a record of wrongs. Love finds no joy in unrighteousness but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE NEVER ENDS!“
