The B-school Life



So, 3 weeks here @ IIMK and I finally get some time to blog... There is nothing very particular that I plan to blog..All are kind of arbitrary..

Often many of us ( including me ) tend to think that our life has been tough and we didnt get what we deserved.. Here, I've met some individuals who have fought of ( or, are still fighting off ) lot of adversities. And compared to them, atleast my difficulties seemed to be trivial.. I tend to realise that the difficulties faced by each of us are kind of unique..And there is no point in benchmarking those..
So, what else are the changes that have come up in me ?

-- The total intake of tea & coffee ( Unlike quite a few people, I drink both ) has increased exponentially
-- I dont feel like sleeping till atleast 1AM ( excluding the time that I doze off in class :-) )
-- There are basically two choices here..Either insulate yourself and concentrate on studies or study a bit and enjoy the life here.. Though I had intentions of slogging when I came here, I quickly dropped off that idea and I'm enjoying my stay here.
-- I tend to find quite a lot of people who are better than me in each and every thing..
-- "Rewards are rarely proportional to the efforts " .. Thats something that one needs to get into his/her mind to survive here. Fortunately, I've accepted this as a fact long time before itself.
-- I think time management would be perhaps my most significant takeaway from this course.
-- Quite a few people are complaining that I'm out of touch with them..I accept it..Time has a high premium value in this system.
-- "Even if you win this rat race, you are still a rat" :-)
-- Every other week, you have a party... And yeah, I still stop at 2 or 3 pegs :-)

You are realizing things much faster than you should, control the speed else you lose faith in the system, which sucks by the way.

See you at the party tonight :)

Rewards are rarely proportional to the efforts

always account for randomness ;)

Ajith said...

@admiral -- hehe :).. Lets see

@bhadra - from my orkut profile ..Five things I cant live without - "roti , kapda , makaan , pani aur orkut"

@nikhil -- Quizzes will come and go. :)

@vinay -- Fan of 'fooled by randomness' ?

Rewards are rarely proportional to the efforts

esp if you are trying to impress your female classmates ;)

Hi,
Similar Observations here Ajith, though for the rewards stuff, I would rather say, "Rewards are sometimes not proportional to the efforts."

I myself try to concentrate on people who are worse than me and try to be happy about the entire situation.
