like to develop a reading practice?
resolving to do it today on Gudhi Padwa?
start/begin good things on the milestone days like 1st January, our
birthday or so.
Padawa is also the beginning of the new year for Maharashtrians. And why not
start something useful on the day?
science of the "Fresh start effect" supports starting of
activities/habits/practice on such milestone days like 1st January or Gudhi Padwa).
begin developing a reading hobby/habit as a business school student.
Idea is to
focus on "business/management" related books. So, this reading will
double up to build knowledge in the area of business/management. (However, you
can choose the books as per your interest/liking, there will be no compulsion).
Moreover, once the practice is set, you may choose the books in your
specialization area like HR, Marketing, Finance, or/and Entrepreneurship, and
continue deepening your reading practice.
you wish to develop a reading
you are willing to invest little time
on it – from as little as 15/20 minutes to 1 hour. (Regularly investing just 15
minutes will result in a reading of 4 to 6 books per year!)
you are willing to invest a little
bit in books. (You can buy, borrow from any library, or borrow from friends.
Anything is fine). (Popular non-fiction paperbacks generally cost 300 to 500 Rs
per book. To start with you may read a book or so per month).
you are BBA/MBA student currently.
(Preferably have studied with me).
invite you to join.
be a sort of book club. Modalities and details we will chalk out soon.
this is not a class/course and will not have any tests/exams/assessments 😊.
informal activity, not linked to any entity/organization as of today.
my hobby and I love helping others to develop this hobby. That's it!
But to take
benefit and learn, you must be interested and willing to read and learn.
objective is to read books that are useful as BBA/MBA student and leverage them
to be a better student. As I have little/some experience in coordinating book
clubs and reading books, I will be able to help you to select books, read them
in a better way, and leverage them to improve desirable competencies (KSA –
Knowledge, skills, and abilities. For starters- competency – is an HR Jargon 😊).
turn out well, you may be able to add a line or two to your resume.
it is expected to groom you as a better student.
So, if this
excites you, do join!
