A good friend of mine who works here in the Carlson School’s career center sent me a link to a nice video parable titled “The Good Life” last week as we were preparing for the 1st year MBA class to arrive. I shared it during what we call our Career Leadership Academy as a part of my presentation on career planning.
The basic premise of the video and what I tried to convey to the new MBAs was to figure out what actually matters to YOU. Focus on your own goals and priorities. There are lots of ways to get to certain goals. It just might be (as in the parable) that you already have a lot of it. Or not…but decide for yourself.
Anyway, I thought it was a nice reminder of balance, perspective and wisdom.
