This book’s origin stems from a question that editor Frances Hesselbein asked her colleague Sarah McArthur, “What is it you see when you look out the window that is visible but not yet seen?” The book’s three editors – including well-known management author, Marshall Goldsmith – suggest that it’s time to think about how you see the world and how would you like it to be. They asked 30 distinguished thinkers to answer this question and to discuss their vision of the world, and how it shapes their identity and their work. Each contributing essayist offers a personal answer. Their answers – and perhaps yours – seem to have a lot to do with recognizing your purpose in life.
