......."What should I do with my life?"
I was recently led to Bronson's essay by that title in
"I'm convinced that business success in the future starts with the
question, What should I do with my life? ................................
People don't succeed by migrating to a "hot" industry (one word:
dotcom) or by adopting a particular career-guiding mantra

question of who they really are -- and connecting that to work
that they truly love (and, in so doing, unleashing a productive
and creative power that they never imagined). Companies
don't grow because they represent a particular sector or adopt
the latest management approach. They win because they
engage the hearts and minds of individuals who are
dedicated to answering that life question.
