A "Spurring" start

Hmmm.. This is my first blog.. took some time to think about the title for it.. Now can anyone guess the reason for this title? Ok.. let me tell about it myself. First of all, I am currently in the land of Uncle Sam and people here are crazy about a game they call Basketball and believe it or not, they have got me involved as well. Even I have become a huge fan about this original Amru game, never played myself though. Spurs have reached the NBA finals and they have been my favourites with players like Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli, Robert Horry, Bruce Bowen.. And the other reason for me starting to write a blog?? I have a dream of getting into ISB and screwing my a** off for a year.. am pretty much desperate about the same and I am going to realize this dream pretty soon. Any prerequisites before even touching the ISB app? Writing skills, my dear!! And so this blog.. :)

Last year same time I had started thinking about going for an MBA and gave my GMAT with just ISB in mind. As I inched towards taking a plunge, I influenced some important people in my life to pursue the same and can you imagine whats the current scenario like? All of them have made it to ISB and I am sitting here writing this blog. I hope this statement of mine does not make everyone feel that I am resenting the same.. I am not. Infact it gave me some more time to work on my profile, to make sure that I dont leave any stone unturned this time on my road to make it to ISB. This one year would definitely make me have an edge over others when I get out of this nonpareil institute.

One year to work upon yourself is more than enough. Dont you think so?? Do you feel that you have started off with some amount of motivation but now seem to be dragging yourself along and loosing your focus as well? Well then this means you are still not sure of what you want to achieve, why you want to do an MBA? Well here when I say "Why you want to do an MBA?", dont start thinking in terms of the interview that you will be facing some months down the lane, across the table with some very elite members from the ISB interview panel. The answer for this question should be your own and should be the "ACTUAL" reason you want to do an MBA. The reason may be anything like you want to be the most highly educated guy in a cult you belong to or may be you want to hoard pieces of paper we call "Money" or may be you want to fulfill someone else's dream who is very close to you and you just want to achieve it to make that person happy.. It can be any damn reason but strong enough to keep you motivated.. and the reason in most cases end up with a cliched statement which reads "MY CURRENT JOB SUCKS!!". Well well well!! Isnt it very true?? Even that should be a good enough reason to go for a change?? Many people might suggest a change of job but what the heck?? If you look into your kitty, you dont have a s*** to show to the company where you will be interviewed on some alien language which you would never have heard of. So its better to grab as much as you can from your current job, work on yourself, shut your eyes and take the "PLUNGE"!!

So any guesses where I am headed these days?? I dont think this is a Million $ question.. so no prizes for guessing. Till the end of last month, I was waist deep, now I can almost smell the water, so it wont be long when I would have already taken the plunge and believe me, this time it will be for "GOOD"!!!
