This is the university I went to for my last degree. It is on the top of a mountain with a great view. ITESM is a private University and is the first among the rankings and it holds the second place for master degrees in Latin America and there are more than 26 campuses in Mexico.
Yesterday was my son’s graduation from 9th grade. (In Mexico, Middle School grades are 7th,8th,9th and High School grades 10th,11th, 12th) He will be starting High school in August and still has a way to go…
On the same day, curiously, I was finishing one of my MBA clases, Corporate Finance, and still have way to go…
So It came to my thinking that once you finish a grade, or reach an objective it is definitely not the end of the journey, or the final destination. It is not about getting to where you are heading, it is about the process, the way of getting there. Did you enjoy it? where you concerned or worried? Was there challenge, obstacles? Did you figure out how to go through them? How did you do it?
It seems that the attitude, the way one decides to go along the way is most important than the goal itself, because at the end one is going to get there and one has to refrain from saying: “Now What”?
See? There is no final destination, it is about the process of getting there and not necessarily being there.
Well, my thinking so far.
I am going back to school! yes…back.
For years I wanted an MBA degree and now is the perfect time to start one. So nervous to go back to school! Last time I stepped into one was… mmm… that long? now I can’t remember.
Why? Thought about that too. I could think that I am doing already ok with my profesional degrees, my career and work but there is an itchy feeling of wanting to learn more, and I am that kind of person. I like taking risk and I like to know more and more about almost every topic there is!
This will be a two and a half year journey… I know I will post something in the future when I finish my degree.
In the mean time, this is how my new school looks like!
