Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Did you ever have the sensation of being at the right place yet feeling like an outsider? Or just that you try to connect with others and yet you can’t?
I like to call it the Blue Fish Dilemma; you are in the water yet you feel overwhelmed with the sea of other fish that all look the same but not like you.
Well starting an MBA is a bit the same: you know where you are going, but you are apprehensive to start new relationships from zero.
First week you introduce yourself to other fishes that you just met, you re-introduce yourself a couple of times (because let’s face it you can’t remember all 200 names). Then you find similarities with others, you try to connect and find a common ground.
Second week you are put in a group of 4 or 5 other fish, and you find out that you’ll share the same bowl for the coming 4 months. You play nice, and try to be yourself while in awe and impressed of others. You may feel like an outsider because all the others are so brilliant. And before you know it, 2 months have passed by and all you want is for the time to stand still.
Then you realise one important thing: you are in a sea where no fish is similar to another. Everyone is different; everyone has qualities and development areas. And this is the beauty of the INSEAD MBA program: Others will carry you up, no one will let you sink to the bottom and at some point you’ll do the same for someone else.
So what type of fish are you?

just got an invitation for interviews, I applied in round 3 and I am from Germany. I was a bit surprised as I expected the invitation in April as stated on the website, but I am obviously happy anyways. Finally good news after being dinged at HBS/Stanford. Anyone else invited?
Good luck to everyone!
