Next month, this time, we’d already be in the 2nd day of the 1st month of 2011. All right, I’m going to say this at the risk of sounding clichéd ‘ Where does the time go?’. I know that we say this each year but it’s true and how!
Anyways, this week has been among the fastest ever. This is my recipe for ‘The fastest week ever!’:
- 2 lectures each of Corporate Finance, German and Economics
- 1 number each of a Social-event meeting, a company presentation, a group-work submission due next week, a conference and a Stammtisch
- 3 visits to the Mannheim Christmas market
- Tonnnes of snow
- A little sun
- and most importantly, great classmates
Sort the ingredients in the order of priority, adhere to schedules as far as possible, pay attention in class; have fun as well, don’t over-analyze things, work as a team, utilize your time efficiently and Voila! you have Friday on your plate in less than the blink of an eye.
Expert tips: Dress-up for winter, stay warm, eat right, sleep well, drink tonnes of water, reduce Facebooking!
Serve with a smile! 🙂
By the way, I simply MUST post on group-work and the learnings from it. Honestly, group-work keeps evolving into a being all its own and I can really see the reasoning behind the huge emphasis placed on group-work. Thanks MBS!
And now the weekend will mostly consist of completing the group-work assignment, studying for the upcoming Corporate finance, Economics and German exams, attending a conference where eminent speakers from the world of business will share their insights on how to become better business leaders and meeting fellow-students and alumni at the last Stammtisch of 2010 (read https://blog.mannheim-mba.com/2010/11/07/celebrating-the-festival-of-lights-at-mbs/ to know what a Stammtisch is).
Also, next week, 3 of our batch-mates leave for their 2nd term at IIM-Bangalore (Indian Institute of Management). We’ll miss them tonnes and wish them all the very best! This is the best time to visit India, especially Bangalore, which has the perfect weather this time of the year. So good luck A, R and S! Gute Reise!
