I was recently watching a documentary which featured a few faculty members from leading business schools in the US. It wasnt something the schools should be proud about. Its seemed like a sad situation. There are Deans who are responsible for the administration of a school and then the same deans and few other professors who are unsure of their motives behind being part the system. If they were sure, the moivations were misplaced in an educational system.
That brings me to my next point. How does one evaluate motivation? How does one examine motivation? Do actions matter more than motivation? I hesitated to say yes but I cant clearly reject the idea either. In a court of justice there are times when motivation of an action determines the sentene that will be carried out. In day to day life however it is hard to examine motivation.
There are professors at certain schools who seem to be contributing in a meaningful manner but that is all they are doing. Its hard to gauge whether the system is polluted or these are a few rotten apples. For the benefit of keeping me motivated I would like to beleive that these are a few rotten apples. If you put two and two together youll see Im refering to my motivation this time and not just a general motivation.
What is my motivation to head back to school? Does it matter what the school is? Does it matter what I think of the school? Is it more important that I make something of this event rather than criticize faults in the system again?
So it’s almost like you believe in something and you get it. Really? I don’t think that statement portrays everything. I think it’s like when you talk about a full fledged war and interpret it like a skirmish. “…They all were ambushed and killed.” Doesn’t really portray everything and gives a false picture to anyone reading it.
So I will be moving to another country. I chose a life choice instead of learning at school. This will probably cut down my options for a two year MBA. Besides the choice to move to another country the original option to continue study to learn business in the US was very expensive.
This changes a lot of things. It does not make me a rich person at all. It gives me the same what I was getting but it does give me an additional year of international exposure. For now nothing has been finalized and neither do I have a contract. Let’s see how things pan out.
I’m interested in numbers. Maybe I’m not particularly good at them. I’m good at understanding the human emotion behind them. That’s what I think… Both those opinions above are mine and I could be wrong at both. I think people will be quick to point out how the second opinion is particularly false. This again is my opinion after all 🙂
So I want to get back to my fancy of programming. So, I’m reading about data analytics using python. I’ll read about SQL. I’ll try to create a time table so that I’m less distracted and can focus on these things. I do not want to get into news on reddit or news on arstechnica. Both those are wonderful resources though.
I think small contributions everyday to language learning, programming and physical activity will do me good. I’ll keep my brain and body active and hopefully I’ll be able to do more good to myself than a school degree. Let’s see…
