The last quarter

I'm finding it hard to believe, but we're at the beginning of the end. Our last quarter at Kellogg kicks off today. In just eleven weeks, Graduation Week will be upon us. Shortly afterwards, everyone will go their separate ways.

Particularly in my second year at business school, I've been quite single-minded about my priority: getting the business off the ground. Whereas in the first year I dabbled more with other things, such as taking charge of the school newspaper and even participating in random activities such as MIT's sales competition, this year my focus has been on the startup.

In this, our last quarter, I'd like to do more. I'd like to take all the classes that I want to, to learn all the things I want. I want to go to all the parties that everyone will be at, to catch up with people for the last time. I feel the urge to do all those student things, such as take part in club activities and competitions. But, in reality I'm not sure how much I can devote to any of this.

There is still much that needs to be done to get the business off the ground. If the past is any indication of the future, there will not be much time for anything and we'll be forced to choose our priorities. In that inevitable scenario, I know what my priority is and will be.
