Clayton Christensen is "a leading Harvard Business School professor and consultant for Intel, Eli Lilly and Kodak," according to the book.

Setting aside family time was important to Christensen, even if it meant a lost job.

When he was a new employee to Boston Consulting Group, Christensen informed his project manager that he didn't work on Sundays or Saturdays.

"...his deepest source of happiness came from intimate relationships with his children and his wife and that he would be a better and more productive employee if he had time set aside to protect these relationships," according to the book.

After that, Christensen made sure he arrived to work two to three hours before his colleagues and didn't leave the office for lunch.
