No matter how successful we are, how much we have accumulated, or how respected we are, there is always a search for what really matters.
We consume self help books and personal growth books to help up find the answers even though we may not truly even understand the question.
One of my favourite books of all time is Autobiography of a Yogi.
The book was the ONLY book that was on Steve Jobs iPad as well as being his last gift to his friends. Everyone attending Steve Job's funeral was given a copy of the book. I feel as though I'm in good company.
I read Paramahansa Yogananda's story every few years. It was a well known fact that Steve Jobs re-read the autobiography every year.
Why do I love this book as so many others do? At its core, it is a path to self-actualization, a way to build our internal voice and to build companies and organization in that same way. To build what matters.
