So, it's Monday morning... again. Does anyone else has this sneaking suspicion that time speeds up as soon as it's Friday at 5PM, and doesn't slow down till Monday at 8:30AM? Now it seems like most of our classes are getting into a pretty good rhythm, although it is very hard to believe that we already are getting very close to MIDTERM season!
And so begins week 4. It's hard to believe first of all that it's already week for and second of all that the quarter is almost half over. For those of you semester fans out there, I'm still a fan of quarters and I'm glad I'll be done with my degree before the big switch.
Ok, so I already wrote a blog about how much I dislike buying textbooks. I hate to keep complaining, but I don't think I dedicated enough attention to my frustration with the textbook's ugly stepsister - the course packet.
Yesterday I drew up a mission statement for my team, which is aimed to summarize the characteristics of high performance organization. You can see as follows. Mission Our vision is to learn from each other, improve our practical abilities though the process of the project and get an excellent score. 1. Members of the team should at least have one meeting per week. Anyone who cannot attend the meeting should make an announcement at least 24 hours ahead.
Texting is huge part of everyone's life these days and it is turning into the main form of communication for people our age. My question is this: Is it necessary to sit the phone on the desk in front of you, and allow the noise of the vibration to disrupt the people around you? I guess being in the Working Professionals MBA program, there are quite a few people that own smartphones, be it an iPhone or Blackberry. It seems that only people with smartphones have this "vibrating" issue.
