    In his book ‘Managing Oneself’, Peter F. Drucker describes how you can build a life of excellence in a world full of unprecedented opportunities. The main idea behind it is simple: Focus on your strengths and cultivate a deep understanding of yourself. You need to learn more about yourself than mere insights into your strengths and weaknesses. You also need to understand how you learn, how you work with others, what your values are, and where you can make the greatest contribution. Only then will you achieve true and lasting excellence.

    Managing Oneself
    Peter Ferdinand Drucker
    Limited preview - 2008

  • The challenges of managing oneself may seem obvious, if not elementary. And the answers may seem self-evident to the point of appearing naïve.

In effect, managing oneself demands that each knowledge worker thinks and behaves like a Chief Executive Officer.
