can't say how useful this information was but honestly it was so short that i dont really care
ive already studied these concepts in management but this felt like a nice revision lesson P:
here's a line i liked:
"But taking pride in such ignorance is self-defeating. Go to work on acquiring the skills and knowledge you need to fully realize your strengths." (thanks for putting nicely into words the way i always feel when ppl brag about how unnecessary a certain skill is and how great it is that they don't have it)

I respect Drucker but while it might have been relevant at the time published when our society shifted to what he calls a "knowledge society."

While most of the book is solid advice, every time he talks about values, the purpose of your life, and where you belong, they all seem too simple and lacking to be business advice, and too bland and soulless to be philosophy.

Poca gente es capaz de meter tantas ideas importantes en algo más que 60 páginas.

Drucker aborda la cuestión que todos podemos hacernos sobre nuestros trabajos, y que casi ninguno nos hacemos. Preguntarse qué es lo que uno hace bien y cómo es la raíz de la que viene la buena marcha de uno mismo. Pocos nos hacemos esa pregunta.

Muy muy recomendable.

One of those little books that can teach a lot about yourself. This book made me face several questions about myself, how I was working, thinking, learning, ... and enlightened me on several things I didn't understand in my life (like why meetings have always been a torment, or why I don't get the podcast thingy, ...). Packed with a lot of wisdom and teachings, it's a great read.

A handy little book, full of useful generalizations. Short enough to be read in a single commute.
