I have been told that business school is an easy major because the work is easy, the classes are easy, and the professors are easy. I believe this to be a false statement, especially when we consider the way our professors are trained. Business school is one of those courses that is really hard, not because of the classes or professors, but because of the way our minds are wired.
We are all trained to think of success as a function of a myriad of variables, with each variable acting as a proxy for the outcome of the previous ones. This is a highly problematic way of thinking. We tend to believe that if we just change one variable that will lead to a more favorable outcome. The truth is that even if we could change every variable in the system that leads to success, we still wouldn’t achieve it.
We don’t know how many times a day we have to go to the bathroom, shower, or do anything else for a long time. We have to think of every variable to be an absolute barometer of success.
You can call it a proxy for the outcome of the previous ones, but you have to be smart enough to know the difference. That means knowing why you want something. In other words, you should have a reason for doing something. It could be money, it could be the desire to help others, it could be a personal goal, a reason you feel passionate about something or a reason you want to make a difference.
It’s not just money. We’re here to help people, so we need to know what makes someone’s life better. It’s not always about money either. In fact, the more we can give other people, the better it is for everyone involved. We need to know what we can do to make our lives better.
Business is one of those things that are hard to quantify. We can measure the amount of money that we make, the amount of hours we work, the amount of time we spend on our business, however, there is no way to measure the level of connection, empathy, or connection that we feel to those we serve. The reason we can’t measure this is because it’s an intangible quality.
This is one of the biggest mistakes I see made in business, which is why I feel that business should be taught a thing or two when it comes to giving people the kind of connection and empathy that they can’t really measure.
Business has always been a source of pain to me, in my business. I think that some people have become so obsessed with the idea of a more meaningful relationship between their business and their customers that they are now trying to make this happen. But I don’t see that as a result of having to think about the value of business.
I think that most of my business problems come from the idea that I feel like I am somehow different and better than other people, and that business is for me. I think that this is just the way that we have been raised. I mean, we were raised to be businesspeople, and when we go out and start our own business, we feel like we have some special power. But I think that this is just the way we have been raised.
