Live blogging (and an update)

After answering some questions we now have some free time before our evening session on organizational design. The questions to be answered were: “Which one thing would you like to change in the next term compared to this one, if possible?”, asked by our tutor (Class answer: “The scheduling.” Tutor: “Well we can’t change that.”)

The other three questions were asked in the Planning & Controlling exam and deserve no further discussion.

First details of the highly secret Term III schedule have been disclosed. One week easter holidays from Wednesday evening to Wednesday morning. The most exciting moment of the week is still awaiting us: the ***Credit person that will speak about internships/projects. Hopefully he/she has some significant infos. Three days and three exams to go.

And without any sarcasm, some spiritual thought:

Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.”

St. Francis of Assisi
(Maybe visiting his place would be an idea for the easter period, click for link)

Late night addition: Speaking about matrix organization structure I suddenly remembered how unreal the business world sometimes seems to me. As to quote “The Matrix”….

The Matrix - red pill or blue pill?

The Matrix - red pill or blue pill? And the truth?!

“…There’s something wrong with the world, you don’t know what it is, but it’s there – like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad…”

But that should not go uncommented with a more philosophical side note:
“Truth is the invention of a liar.”
