In 'Are you ready to succeed' Srikumar Rao examines ways to live a more fruitful life

Often we wonder what the purpose of what we are doing is, does it make sense? In 'Are you ready to succeed', Srikumar Rao, professor at Columbia University Graduate School of Business explores ways to put ourselves in a better place. Are_you_ready He looks at it through business and spiritual lenses, offering exercices, reading and other tools that can open our eyes and help us live a more meaningful life, one where we are glad to get up in the morning and look forward to what is ahead of us.
