Weekly Photo Challenge: CREATE

I’m trying to create meaning out of the several interviews I’ve done for my MBA research. It’s on my study room wall just now – trying to group similar themes and see trends. If that doesn’t challenge my creativity, I don’t know what will…


Some excuses for being a bore

I realise that many folks showing up on this blog probably think I’m boring. This is fair comment as I’ve done little more than participate in the weekly photo challenges over the past month or so. The thing is: I’m SWAMPED.

For the first time in my life, I have admitted that I’ve set too many wheels in motion all that once. It wasn’t on purpose, I swear to you. My dissertation was inevitable, work challenges are to some degree inevitable and life is (I hope) inevitable. I’m not able to delve into the details but the personal journey I’m on is exciting and exasperating. It could make my heart stop and race at the same time.

My dissertation is very interesting as I go deeper. It has allowed me to find a new love – research. I never thought I had the patience but alas, not knowing what I’ll uncover energises me.

So things are happening but obviously not on my blog. Please be patient with me as I go through these times. I promise to tell you all about it when the time is right.

Much love,

Starting the Months of Madness

I had a suggestion from one of my readers to record my business research journey here. Some of you may know that I’m doing a business course at university which requires me to carry out some research in the next few months. My research is on Change management during social media implementation programs. I’m focusing on how learning during the change can promote employee participation.

Yes, that was a mouth-full – even for me. I hope to record elements of my work on Months of Madness, a new blog I have created and dedicated to this research work. There’s only an About Me page on there now but I do plan to update on:
1. New and wonderful things I’m reading and learning
2. Things I’m reading that I do agree with
3. Stuff I don’t agree with based on some personal experience or perception.
4. Lack of progress – yes, there’ll be some venting but I’ll try to keep this to a minimum
5. Achievements of milestones e.g. Completion of literature review, interview and survey design completions, final submission etc.

I hope some of you will join me there. It may be a little heavy but I think it’ll be fun. After the research is done, the site will stay up, perhaps a student or two will find inspiration there or just a point of view.

I’m excited and worried at the same time. I’ve realised there will be no short cuts with this – I’ve checked. I have to find out things for myself and roll my sleeves up to do the dirty work. Wish me luck!
