How Will You Measure Your Life? Clay Christensen at TEDxBoston



“It’s actually really important that you succeed at what you’re succeeding at, but that isn’t going to be the measure of your life.”

Too often, we measure success in life against the progress we make in our careers. But how can we ensure we’re not straying from our values as humans along the way? Clayton Christensen, Harvard Business School professor and world-renowned innovation guru, examines the daily decisions that define our lives and encourages all of us to think about what is truly important.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  • Great video! I hate to be such a Debby downer in a community of such bright minds. But we are not judged based on how we react to others, we are judged on one simple question. "Are your sins forgiven?" and that is it

  • My two takeaways: 1) be careful to not fall in to the trap of measuring success solely through short-term, measurable gains (i.e. quarterly earnings). Perhaps not unlike building an organization to last, achieving a close, joyful family, requires investments that may not contribute to positive short-term measurements, but they do contribute to the survival of the family or organization. This may look like consciously spending more time with one's family, or at the workplace–supporting a day of service in the community. 2) God's measurement for success is how one helps and loves one another. It is not measured by position, money, or fame, which, with our finite human minds, it easier to aggregate and measure. Only God, with his infinite, omniscient mind, can fairly aggregate the contributions one makes in the lives of others.

    If #2 is true, which I think it is, I suspect each of us on that day of accounting, will feel compelled to give a transparent accounting ourselves, good deeds, warts and all, and we will indeed know the measurement of our lives.

    Thank you for this message and your positive influence Clayton Christensen. What I know of you, you seem to walk the talk and your life was a shining example of this very message.

  • For context, Professor Christensen had suffered a stroke in the summer of 2010 that deeply affected his ability to speak. Amazing to see him give a strong lecture not that long after.

  • Truly, a mighty redwood tree has fallen! Thanks to his writings and online talks, count me as one he greatly influenced for good. He was the most excellent mentor and role model so many of us lacked in our lives. As tears roll down my cheeks, I am happy for him that he is now free from illness and disability, as he has left our world for the next. I extend my condolences to his loved ones, as they transition to the new normal his absence leaves.

  • Living life worrying about what "God's" judgment is going to be when or if St. Peter allows you to walk through those pearly gates and be judged on how you served mankind sounds like a pathetic existence here on earth. How about illiminating the fear of "God" in our lives and carpe diem in pursuing what brings joy and happiness into your life. My experience with using religious dogma to guide how you live your life fosters misery.

  • By the time we're in high school our certain ways of thinking must be getting majorly crystallized: ratio can be increased by adding to numerator or subtracting from denominator. Combining that understanding with long term versus short term thinking gives formula for successful business and life.

  • I’m both shameful and sad for not knowing this great man until his death. What a huge loss to know alot of shallow celebrities and ignoring people like him.
