The Motivation Mill

I resumed my gym yesterday. I am not sure if I'll have the luxury of working out while I am at the Indian School of Business. Unlike most other people, I like working out on the treadmill - both for the obvious and the not-so-obvious reasons. The obvious reason is that the treadmill is the most effective way to get rid of that excess fat and the easiest way to remain in good shape. It’s also a very good cardio exercise. However, I like it more for the not-so-obvious reason. Working out on the treadmill (and watching myself doing that in the mirror that faces it in my gym) motivates me to great levels. My best laid plans regarding writing the GMAT, GMAT strategies, ISB application and subsequently the ISB interview, all owe their synthesis to my workout sessions on the treadmill. That’s why I have re-christened the treadmill. I now call it the Motivation Mill.

And then ISB happens..

7th Jan, 2006 was a landmark day in my life. I got selected for admission to the Indian School of Business, Hyderabad. With this, I come within striking distance of realising my long cherished dream.. and boy.. am I excited or am I excited??? I have been made to understand, however, that its going to be one hectic year with a very rigorous schedule. From the peaceful Abu Dhabi life, to the most extreme form of slogging that stares me in the eye, it will be quite a transition though. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to it :-)
