On Free-riding

Well hello there.

As you may have guessed, the last post was inspired by some challenging team dynamics. Ironically, this week two of my teams have stepped up and pulled their weight magnificently, so I am finally having a chance to breathe. It's nice when team karma comes back my way now and then.

I'm in the midst of a long post on the value of women in biz groups but it feels awfully serious and I'm not sure that I want to post it ... we shall see. I'm a woman of many half-written posts.

Just watched The Diving Bell and the Butterfly while attempting to do my Comp Strat homework. Business school this term is feeling awfully business-ey. I was working on helping my folks get a website going for their business which felt so much more interesting than homework. I feel restless and lazy.

Half way through the quarter and I'm glad. Ready for summer.

Glad that you were able to overcome the issue. Maybe all you team members were secretly reading your blog, and came to the realization that it is high time to get serious - else face dire consequences :)

Did you like "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly"? I thought it was an ok-sort of film. I was amazed to learn that someone could write a book just with the help of his eyelids. But the content/overall theme of the film was not too deep to impress.

Here is wishing you (and baby Y) a great, fun-filled summer !!!

Among the half-written posts, any chance you've looked back to re-analyze this previous entry?

I think it was one of your best, and I'd be curious to hear how you feel things have changed (now having the benefit of hindsight).
