I am a bit surprised at the way I feel, now that my school is over. I feel a bit like I did when I graduated from High School, like there are new roads to travel, new mountains to climb and new worlds to conquer.
All of this new hope has been made possible by my completion of this difficult journey. It’s taken lots of late nights, early mornings, and 12 hour Saturdays, but 18 months later I am finished with my MBA.
One of the last parts of the last assignment I was asked to reflect on the things that I learned during the process. I think the most exciting thing for me to learn during the process, was about the Balance Scorecard. I am looking forward to putting those philosophies into practice where I work.
Another thing I was asked to do in the last assignment was to come up with some professional goals. One of the goals is getting my PHD in organizational development, and probably the study of what motivates people at work, fascinating stuff to me.
I am also compiling a list of books that I want to read now that have some extra time to study what I want. The first book I am going to read is Innovators DNA I ordered this book about two years ago, but I got distracted with other things and have not had a chance to read it yet. I have misplaced it; however, the local library has a bunch of copies, so I am going to go pick that up in the next couple of days from there.
Another thing I am going to focus on over the next couple of months is filming my Kids sports. Soccer and Waterpolo.
I just want to stay focused and not get into too many things.
