Classes

Someone asked me how my quarter was going... I gave it some thought, and this is all I could come up with: busy, but not stressful.

Some food for thought, from quotes from my Business Policy class (which, by the way, I described to a friend to day as "having flashes of brilliance, and then moments of boredom"):

"I have always found that if I could create an environment around me in which everyone felt that they were learning, I would have a hot group. I have always tried to include people in what I was doing, to encourage them..."

"What I am interested in doing is helping to create a kind of musical space. And I enter this space with my ideas, and all of my colleagues... with their ideas... in this space we find one another"

Being (very / too) involved in student activities, I see a lot of my colleagues in action in their respective leadership positions. Since the above quotes illustrate the golden standards for a leader (along with desire and vision) for me, I did a quick mental survey of my colleagues. I think a lot of them have a I-can-do-it-all mentality and lead by example. Not many lead through motivating others. Obviously it's difficult when you put together a bunch of alpha dogs together. But still... anyway, I strive to be that.

Meanwhile, I'm doing a case on Pizza Hut on their channel strategy. SO HUNGWY.

Doing a very interesting photography project now. Will share results. Also, I've had some favorite pictures from my class. They are all on my CDs, so it will take some time before I get them here. Meanwhile, here's picture I took from a one-year olds birthday party. Who said GSB doesn't have cute girls!?

Wow, I see that qualities of the GSB ladies have vastly improved! Did you know that kids from the main campus used to call the female B school students "B-Pohs"...(you need to be cantonese to understand)

DAMN, that's harsh!!! It has improved significantly, based on my observation of last years graduation class and the incoming class. I credit admissions.

Any time I do a case on any sort of consumable, I want it. Coors made me want beer, Coca Cola (or even aluminum cans) made me want a soda, etc., etc.

But the quality of GSB boys doesn't improve much...

Dude, isn't the baby a little too young for you to be calling her a cute girl? Dirty old man... :)

My friend at INSEAD did a Durex project in marketing class...

And still remember the difference between what you need and what you want (yeah, also in marketing)? It's about finding your real demand... :)
