Most people drive a car.
Most people have driven on a road trip.
Some aspire to drive across the country.
A select few strive to be the fastest.
One person has done this trip with under 30 hours of driving.
But think about it- do you want to sit in a car for 30 hours? And not just sit, but with your foot pinned down and a tank of gas in the trunk? Add the preparation time, maybe add a few failed attempts, maybe add a criminal charge and a few other issues.
The MBA journey is like that for me right now. I am happy I am driving, but boy oh boy, I sure see why few do this, why few aspire, and why few accomplish.
A quick pit stop, then back to it...
