So you want to be a VP, part III

link to part II
Just read this terrific post summarizing a talk by Patty Azzarello on How to be Really Successful at Work AND Like Your Life. Two sentences from's "About the author":
Patty Azzarello became the youngest general manager at Hewlett-Packard at age 33, ran a $1B software business at 35 and became a CEO at 38 (without turning into a self-centered, miserable, jerk). Whether leading massive business transformations or advising CEO’s 1-to-1, her insights, integrity, and generosity have fused with her work to create life-changing impact on the careers of thousands of people in large and small companies across the world.
All that's impressive, but I really liked her advice to DO BETTER, LOOK BETTER, CONNECT BETTER (details on the above post on compscigail's blog).

Patty has a short video on her home page introducing her (November 2010) book; hosts an author page with links to her book, blog posts, etc.

This looks like great advice, particularly if you want to become a VP without ruining your life.
