You just want to say one word to me. Just one word.

May 20, 2012

You can make it “plastics” if you want, but I’d really like to hear peoples’ best 1-word bit of advice … leave it as a comment.

Oh, but why, you ask?  Because yesterday was my graduation – I now have an MBA, from Babson College.  It took 3 1/2 years of mostly 2 nights in the classroom each semester and comprised 19 courses, ranging from Accounting & Finance to Negotiations to “Creative Destruction”.  Over that time I was part of 7 group projects, and worked with classmates from at least 10 countries (Japan, Peru, Chile, S. Korea, China, India, Pakistan, Germany, Sweden, Spain).  It was fun, in a weird way, mainly because of the diversity of the topics.  My job is a pretty interesting one, but still it is a single product in a single industry.  In the program I did cases and papers on companies ranging from small family businesses, to startups, industrial manufacturing, global conglomerates and technology leaders.

But now its done and now I have to apply this learning to the real world.  I do wonder about much the same things as younger graduates – where to go and how to get there.  I’d love to hear your 1-word advice – or, if you can’t keep it to one word, try for a “Go west, young man!” type of sentence.
