Why I love this place

One of my co-workers gave me a pack of stickers called “I {heart} the Office” with such nuggets as “I {heart} Win-Win” and “I {heart} marker smell” and “I {heart} an empty in-box”. So that got me thinking about what I {heart} about where I work (tongue firmly in cheek):

  • I {heart} Hallway nonversations
  • I {heart} stall calls
  • I {heart} coffeepot friends
  • I {heart} off-topic replies
  • I {heart} artificial enthusiasm
  • I {heart} 8 o’clock
  • I {heart} …

I’m sure there will be more…

The Personal MBA

My latest obsession is not technology related at all, but harkens back to a goal I had a while ago. I spent a year in a traditional MBA (TMBA) program trying my darndest to earn the degree and enhance my knowledge. I had to quit for a number of reasons which I won’t go into here.

One day, while checking out the Internet Zeitgeist, I came across Josh Kaufmann’s Personal MBA 40. Immediately, I was intrigued.

So I am now participating in the early stages of PersonalMBA.com. I think this challenge has a lot to offer me and many others. I’m also starting a “Personal MBA In Person” because I believe a lot can be gained for many people by learning in person with each other.

I’m going to document my progress here, as well as participating on www.PersonalMBA.com. I’ll let you know how it goes.
