Fortunately I’m not talking about mine (or at least that’s what I hope)
I recently had the chance to attend a speech from a MBA (earned in a top-tier school, if you want to know) and I reassured my assumption that those three letters in your curricula don’t guarantee anything. As Mintzberg said, there’s much more to managing than getting analytical abilities, and, as somebody also said, a butcher will always be a butcher, even if you give him a scalpel.
There’s another idea that I like a lot: the “kiss up and kick down”concept. Of course I’m not recommending its practice but just pointing a finger to a way of behaviour that many people knowingly exercise.
Why is it so difficult to appreciate principles? Isn’t it strange that so many people just don’t care about anything but their goals even putting them in front of family, friendships, humanity or whatever comes into play? I couldn’t live that way.
Even when times are harsh, when you have to make difficult choices, you can’t let go off your principles. What’s right or wrong will still be right or wrong. Brilliant people can become bloody sharks if they don’t learn to tame themselves. If you fall for the hunting game you’ll end up seeing others as prey, worthless prey.
a monkey after all
This week I was thinking and reflecting about personal development… why is that I end up seeing so many people, bright people, that I don’t want to be like?
