I ask you.
Outwit. Outplay. Outlast.
Do those words mean anything to you? If you think 'Survivor', you are where I want you to be. If you have other takes on these words, please feel free to share them. It is amazing what you get to know when you hear from someone outside the box.
Anyway, my next question is this. Do you think doing an MBA course is Outwitting, Outlasting or Outplaying your colleagues? Or does it have everything to do with making your employer think that you are the best candidate for the job? (It could mean establishing that the other candidates are not as good as you are.)
Personally, I have learned a LOT of things about myself and what my strengths and weaknesses are by working at Marks and Spencer in London. On paper, my job has very little to do with Store Management and perhaps one might think that there is no thinking involved. But, is that a good thing? Is your brain trained to just 'do' and not ask 'why'? More importantly, are you asking 'how'?
I'd love to hear more from the readers. You.
Let me/us know your thoughts?
Is it necessarily a good skill to be a 'DOer' -- someone who does not ask questions (or perhaps ask only the right ones and get things done) ?
