“I had 10 minutes for the lecture to start and I automatically thought of utilizing the time by quickly reading a couple of Eco Times articles”, Amit told me the other day.

That I feel is starting happening for every one of us. In the few days I have experienced an MBA school, I have realized that the key lesson that is to be learnt is in Time Management. It is a time of realization that so much can be done in the 24 hours we have with us everyday.

Today, for instance, I had classes from 9 – 4. Within minutes of exiting the class at 4, our Group was in a teacher’s cabin, where we were instructed to give a presentation on a case study. Quickly after that, the plan of action was decided. Time to go on for the next job – Alumni cell work for half an hour. After that, without losing time, onto the preparation for the fresher’s event, Parampara – giving auditions for acting in a Play (and getting selected!!). After that rushing back home, firing some mails, some minutes with the dumb bells, a quick hot shower, dinner and starting preparing for the presentation next day plus some left over work of some other presentations.. etc etc etc…Uff… bas...

Compare it with the good old college days.. Aah.. getting free at 5.00 (if its not a bunk after lunch), then loitering around in college or at verka. A round at lake, then coming home, spoiling Airtel’s profit figures by endless calling which were free ( 2 numbers free from a mobile – what a scheme!! There was a month when my actual bill was Rs 8000 but due to different schemes I paid Rs 450.). Calling was followed by Need for Speed. And then retiring to bed after watching some TV. What a Life!!!!

For a change I am finding it enjoyable being 'busy'.. ;-)

But as Pink Floyd says -
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

So Lets see how long the enjoyment lasts…

Listening to: Time by Pink Floyd...(kya gaana hai yaar!!!)

Well, as you go up the school ladder, the more busy you get.

Many times, that's the other way round from the professional world ;)

Cuckoo said...

Oh Oh.. that reminds me of my series of "Mulgi Shikli Pragati Zhali". Do you know the meaning of it ?

BTW, the "Passing the Sentence" game is up on my blog. You can play this time. :)

Good one. Yes, life is difficult at some times due to a gamut of things to do.. I am also facing the blues. But we know can manage it!

Ajith Prasad Balakrishnan said...

About Time management, yeah..thats perhaps the greatest lesson that u can learn while doing MBA :) ...Airtel schemes , I learnt SMSing during such a scheme from Escotel :) one month free SMS and my entire class got bored with my SMS Jokes ( PJs ) :)

@cuckoo: i don't remember as now.. had u explained it in the blog??
game: is time bade ajeeb point pe hai... kuch idea nahi aa raha..

@Rahul: haan yaar.. we CAN manage it.. hopefully

@Ajith: It was the same for me - 1 month of free sms.. and unfortunately for my class (and me!) it was exam time!

@Paro: Thanks!! - both for reading and appreciating..
