Description
Article by Peter F. Drucker on how a series of personal experiences taught him to grow personally and professionally. Drucker relates his early professional and academic life, and the significance of remaining intellectually curious and self-taught in a wide variety of fields. Drucker proceeds to talk about the importance of determining what one wants to be remembered for, and how it should change as one grows older with the world's changes and gains more wisdom. Drucker ultimately learns from a dying Joseph Schumpeter that the impact one has on others is the one thing worth being remembered for, and states that those he knows who have managed to stay effective through life have learned this.
