I like to listen to a lot of people who are smarter than me. So this morning

I was at the gym and I decided to pull up YouTube and up came Karen Dillon

on my feed.


Initially, I didn't recognize who Karen was. She starts out her talk explaining

she was the Editor of the Harvard Business Review, probably my favorite

business publication.


She explained that she was trying to get one more article into the magazine, and

had heard that Clayton Christensen, one of the preeminent business thinkers

of our time had given a master lecture that might be a good fit as an article.


She went down to his office and talked to him for a little over an hour and I'll let you watch

what she found out.


But here is something she said,


"Strategy in business or life is not set from on high it's executed by everyday decisions that

we make. Strategy is not what we say, but it has to do with resource allocation."


So put that in your noodle and think about that and then listen to the rest of her talk and see

what things she says you think could help you change your life.






Clayton Christensen - How Will You Measure Your Life?


I thought I would share this TED Talk. It starts with a powerful question, How Will You Measure Your Life?


Think about that for a moment How will YOU measure YOUR Life? That puts the responsibility on you

to figure out what your measuring stick is, and what things are important and not important to you.


One of my favorite teachers is Clayton Christensen and in this TED Talk he gives, he works through some thoughts that might give you some insight on how to measure your life.


I hope you enjoy.

















This post is going to be a bit of a free-form post and I'm mostly going to write

what pops into my head.


I've been thinking a lot about understanding lately. Like what is the link

between knowledge and understanding.


Any question or real curiosity you have in life needs to have some level

of understanding. Knowledge is easy to get. It's everywhere.


If you Google something right now and you can get some knowledge. It may

not last, but it's still a little bit of knowledge.


The core of true applied knowledge is to gain understanding. This is using

knowledge in the right context and knowing when to use it and how to use it.


The knowledge and understanding you get can help to make things better, it could

be used to be more empathetic or sympathetic to a problem someone is going through.


Simply put on the hierarchy of learning understanding is the pinnacle

and reaching it is worth the reward.
