Never Procrastinate

It’s been a while I’ve written something here. As I have already mentioned in a post before, getting back to the study mode is finding to be a difficult task everyday. The assignments of MBA are coming my way every once in a while. But the real struggle is to get them all submitted on time.

However, I enjoy studying again, a lot. Reading the educational books, and spending hours and hours in the library takes my memory back to the days in the university. Even though the subjects have become a bit advanced, the feeling is more or less the same.

The topic starts to relate to the title of the post right now. The last assignment was a real killer, which I happened to go through financial statements of the companies and getting myself familiar with all the financial terms and equations were a real drama. I accepted the challenge (of course I had to), and prepared myself little by little for the assignment. The journey became so harder due to the fact that I haven’t touched anything related to it in any part of my education. However, the subject was interesting, and sometimes it made myself to drift away from the initial target.

I was literally covered in sweat when the submission date came closer and closer. How much I planned to cover a certain word limit for a day, I felt exhausted after going home from office. I would have done a better job if I had started a bit earlier, where I was interested in gathering and reading a lot of background information.

The job was done, finally. But I didn’t like the feeling at the end. Why should I push myself into such extremes in terms of pressure and stress levels? They were all created by us, where we would have identified and attended to those in the early phases of time.

Again, there is nothing good will come in our way by procrastinating stuff. As everyone says (it’s actually easier said than done) the best time to do something is right now. If we can think of it now, why can’t we find time to act upon it. And again, who knows if the same opportunities will come again in the future?

Once we train our mind to take prompt actions, we’ll be able to save a lot of time. And more importantly, we’ll be able to open many doors. Who has all the time in the world to wait for something to happen? Who knows how many days are left for us in this world?

So, quit dreaming. Wake up. And make dreams a reality, because there is no one in this world who would do that for you!!

Started The Student Life, Again !

Studying

It’s about time to get myself educated. Not with something else, but with a Master’s Degree.

After doing a lot of research in the local educational institutes, I selected to get an MBA offered by Anglia Ruskin University, where the local classes are conducted by British School of Commerce, which is the local campus of London School of Commerce. The journey would be interesting, meeting new people in the industry and even from other countries would definitely add more value to life. Also, getting back on the academic track would make me a bookworm where I don’t have any regret.

It’s like achieving one of my goals, where I had thought of starting it somewhere two to three years back. With all the busy life and piling up new tasks in life delayed that particular dream drastically. But, it’s never late and I feel like I am on the right track again.

The first lecture was about HRM, which I had only followed it as a subject in an elective back in the bachelor’s degree. It was like refreshing the memory at first, but there was significant amount of information this time. Since all the assessments are about to make via assignments, we were asked to go through a heck of lot information before even starting to type.

Study, Motivation

Study, Motivation

The subject was relatively new to me, but the lecturer played an appreciative part to make it more interesting. I have a feeling that the rest of 18 months would give a whole new meaning to my life.

In the mean time, I’ve missed my writing goals amidst all those new things happening in my life. It was another task that I’ll have to deal with.

Reading … Writing … Researching … That would basically sum up my next one and a half years.

Why I Decided To Do An MBA

MBA - Master of Business Administration

It’s been seven years after walking out of the university with a degree in Science, and ever since, I was busy building my own career, meeting new people and working in several companies to enhance my skills. It felt brilliant as I was curious to get out there, and to feel what it meant to be a part of the real working force. There are no regrets during that time, not to mention that everything adds up to the bucket of experience. Good or bad, there’s something to learn from those moments, and later they’ll be beneficial to tackle challenges in the future.

I’m always passionate about dealing with people and to make use of their skills to do a certain task creatively. The roots were planted inside of me when I was in the university, and taking up certain leadership roles which inspired me of how much we could do, if we put the right mindset accordingly. Most people think handling people is difficult, especially in a competitive environment. Sure, it’s different from what you do in a college or university, but overall, there’s a connection with the two. AIESEC made a great impact in my life, to inject little buds of managerial enthusiasms, and entrepreneurial thinking. The cross-cultural platform provided a great opportunity to listen to what people from other countries think of a certain issue, and how they view at it from different angles.

All of those inspired me to do an MBA at some part of my life (somewhere in to five years in the industry.) The ultimate goal of having one is to equip myself with necessary knowledge to reach to a higher position and most of all, do a better and ideal job which everyone would appreciate my effort.

Looking forward to get back in the classroom and grab some new knowledge …
