Time is definitely not linear; it can go slow and fast at the same time.
Two months in and I started to grab a feeling of the so-called “IMD life”. People are talking about a term referred as your “IMD moment”, meaning, when you suddenly realize it is too much, too overwhelming and nothing is under control, and you start to panic – that is the classic “IMD moment”.
Luckily (or possibly the contrary), I haven’t been through mine yet. I guess for my culture, pressure from pure school work is something I have been trained to get used to since childhood, and as a result I have a higher threshold. I imagine, if I panicked, most of my classmates from other cultures must have gone crazy already.
However, something quite new has started to bother me, and has a potential to let me get my “IMD moment” eventually.
I guess this is a part of the MBA journey – to learn about new challenges and turn them into something of myself, either an opportunity or a learning. I remember a quote saying “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”. Such a cliche; I know! I am just being hopeful. 🙂
Crossing my figures and concentrating my energy; I will not be killed!
