Initially I wanted this blog to be a reflective moment of shared insight and new found knowledge. I wanted this to be a reflection of who I am and what I value and the insight I collect, like the pebbles in the pocket of a wandering child.
Lately the MBA drama has trashed the house and foundation of who I am. Normally a failing mark on a proposal wouldn't set off frustration and resentment. But as I look down and kick the sand, I realize they are the same thing. I am sharing my insight and new found introspection, though often shrouded in complaints and frustration. This MBA is but a test, and I am not doing well in it, and that is ok.
This is the biggest challenge I have, and it is self inflicted. It is one short email to quit the MBA and drop this albatross. But it doesn't align with my values or represent who I am. I usually complete things, and usually at a high level of quality and value. So, dear reader, this guy will finish the MBA and then rest before I take up the next challenge. And this blog will continue to serve as a platform of reflection. The brand of who I am is seen in my voice, my posture, my health, my children, my work and in my blog. Time to step up and close off the MBA.
