It has been a long time lj.
I would like to reflect more. And perhaps post my reflections. I would like a journal, and this is the most comprehensive one I have.
I read an article today How to Win at Life on BusinessInsider.
Very motivating, blah blah blah, but it charged me to write down my goals and work at them. I haven't done that in awhile. I couldn't even tell you what they are really. And as I begin my MBA I recognize that it is critical to have my elevator speech prepared. Not just for others, but for me. An elevator speech captures succinctly what I am trying to accomplish and what I can offer. Why don't I have a good answer to that question?
My classes do not seem too difficult, but I knew that the main value of the MBA would be the extracurriculars, and what I make of it. I need to develop that plan. Maybe it will coalesce more as I see more clearly the opportunities of business school. But I need a white page design of what I am after in the first place. Something to think on. The Jesuits would be proud.
I've heard before the power of written goals. Bill Clinton swore by them. I like his first one: "Be a good man." I endeavor to do the same.
I believe the last time I wrote goals it got me to approximately this point. I got into the MBA program I wanted, I got a girlfriend, I got a better job. They weren't the easiest to accomplish, but now I need to plan the next stage.
