Living in More Than One World

By living in more than one world, you gain new insights, see from fresh perspectives, and access ever-changing sources of inspiration and stimulation. It's a way of life that can be lived by anybody willing to follow Peter Drucker's wise counsel and Bruce Rosenstein's practical guide.

Millions revere Drucker as “the father of modern management”—this is the first book to share his reflections on self-management

Based on Bruce Rosenstein’s 20 years-plus study of Drucker’s life and thought

Helps you construct a complete life plan through exercises, questions, and illustrative anecdotes and quotes

How can we have a rich and fulfilling life? For Peter Drucker, one of the most influential thinkers of modern times, the secret was “living in more than one world”—enjoying a diverse set of interests, activities, acquaintances, and pursuits. Drucker was able to do this despite extraordinary demands on his time, and now Bruce Rosenstein shows how the man who transformed organizational management can transform the way you manage your personal and professional life.

An enormously influential business author and consultant, Drucker also wrote extensively on self-development and self-management, but these writings are scattered throughout dozens of books and articles. For the first time Rosenstein brings these ideas together into a straightforward framework that guides you in building a multifaceted life and career. It’s the next best thing to being mentored by Drucker himself.

Rosenstein shares Drucker’s advice for, first, honing in on your core competencies—developing your main talents, clarifying your values, and managing your time. With this firm foundation established he uses Drucker as both source and example to show how to enrich your life by developing parallel and second careers, making a difference in the lives of others through voluntarism and service, and using teaching and lifelong learning as complimentary ways of staying engaged and up to date.

By living in more than one world you gain new insights, see your world from fresh perspectives, access ever-changing sources of inspiration and stimulation. Peter Drucker managed a varied professional life as a writer, educator, and consultant, and was deeply immersed in literature, music, and art. But he wasn’t superhuman. This is a life that can be lived by anybody who has the tools and Bruce Rosenstein provides them in this thoughtful and inspiring book.
