The intention of this course is not to preach, but to share my experiences of both doing and not doing the right things, and to express my observations of the corporate world in general. There are hundreds of books on career management and management in general. Everyone is bored with them. So I touched only upon the essentials and presented them in as interesting a manner as I could. In The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, there is a paragraph which talks about why it is important to pick work that you enjoy.

But the best is a matter of standards—and I set my own standards. I inherit nothing. I stand at the end of no tradition. I may, perhaps, stand at the beginning of one.”
