Someone tell me something good about their day.

In talking with an ex admissions director, he said, and I quote "Your 730 GMAT and diploma in Econ from a top school alone put the elite b-schools within your reach. On the other hand, your professional history is more fragmented, your GPA lower, and your non-work activities lighter than ideal."

Someone tell me something uplifting, a fun story, something. I'm nervous and scared.

The 3 Minute Management Course [#permalink] New post 31 Aug 2006, 20:47
The 3 Minute Management Course

Lesson One:

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.

A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?"

The eagle answered: "Sure, why not."

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Management Lesson:

To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

Lesson Two:

A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey. "But I haven't got the energy."

"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull.

"They're packed with nutrients."

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

Management Lesson:

Bull 'excrement' might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Lesson Three:

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.

While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.

As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He laid there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.

A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.

Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Management Lesson:

(1) Not everyone who dumps on you is your enemy.

(2) Not everyone who gets you out of 'dung' is your friend.

(3) And when you're in deep 'dung' , it's best to keep your mouth shut!

This ends the three minute management course.

I would draw his/her image on paper, kick it a few times and move on...
An ultra-elite would be great..but by itself it isn't going to determine how successfull you are in life.
