5 crucial things you won’t learn at any Business school

..Decision fatigue Like it not, business schools don’t teach you everything you need to know for happiness and success. Spending over $200,000 to get an MBA degree from a top business school will help you understand the fundamental principles of a successful venture and introduce you to new concepts, ideas, and also new people to advance in life.

Unfortunately, only after “life happens,” you will realise the limitations of cl-room learning. Just as a biology course won’t guarantee that you’ll end up a doctor, a business management degree won’t ensure your success as an entrepreneur. In this guide, I will discuss a few factors which I think are overlooked at most B-schools worldwide.

1. Dealing with people: 

Unfortunately, only after “life happens,” you will realise the limitations of cl-room learning. Just as a biology course won’t guarantee that you’ll end up a doctor, a business management degree won’t ensure your success as an entrepreneur. In this guide, I will discuss a few factors which I think are overlooked at most B-schools worldwide.

2.  Visioning the future you:

One of the best ways to bring your vision to reality is by having a clear picture of your goal and imagining yourself in it as you are already in your future. Successful athletes incorporate this method while training.

However, such practice is absent among aspiring corporate professionals. If you want to do something, see yourself in that position. For instance, if you’re going to start your boutique business, see yourself as that entrepreneur. Once you start picturing your goals, you will create opportunities and draw in people that lead you to your dream as if you’ve already achieved your ideal life.

3. You become what you think: 

Believe it not; you are the writer of your life story.  Your thoughts can affect every aspect of your life. Here’s something I’ve learned the hard way – positive thoughts lead to positive results and negative thoughts to the negative ones. 

For instance, as an employer, if someone is underperforming, don’t only focus on the underperformance part as it will only lead to negative results. Instead, focus on the reason for underperformance and take the necessary steps to correct the reasons. That way, you will encourage the employee to work harder to improve and see more positive results.

4. Proper time management:  

When I was a student, I drafted a detailed study plan for my -ignments and self-study sessions. It would keep me on track with my business -ignment writing without additional help from tutors.

Most Business schools teach students all sorts of things that students must do perform under pressure. What these schools don’t teach you is that 24 hours isn’t enough to get everything done.

In life, you will come across challenges or face more tasks than you can handle. What would you do to come out victorious? Simple – follow a basic rule! Figure out what you’ve to do and what you can skip. Once you have that sorted, devise a plan, and allocate time strategically to complete the task on time without sacrificing quality.

5. Setting goals:

Business schools are all about creating business plans and making strategic decisions. But it’s surprising how little management schools go about setting goals and how to do it. I have come across so many entrepreneurs with brilliant ideas who have a clear vision of what they want to do but not really how to go about it.
