    Managing Yourself was the best book to start the year 2018. I have always enjoyed the articles compiled by HBR editors. Managing Yourself was an eye-opener. Every essay was thought provoking. Some made me wonder if I could do better professionally, another made me question if I would thrive in a different profession that focuses on my strengths, another provided some techniques to evaluate my values and if I am spending the right amount of money, time and energy on them.

There is a newer version of this book with some different articles by different gurus. I can’t wait to start on that one. I borrowed this book from the library; I would recommend getting a copy for your reference and thumb through it to serve as a reminder; else these nuggets tend to get buried in the sands of ‘being busy’.

    The book provides food for thought. While some of the articles may seem as somewhat obvious (thus shallow), essential insights into corporate culture are given. It is a good source of perspective for people that are having struggles with their careers or those who want to be prepared upon entering the world of business.

    Hit or miss. The first article and the last article were excellent, but the rest was a bit uneven.
