I’ve been out of the loop lately because school has been busier than I could have ever imagined. I just finished the first month of my MBA experience and it is like drinking from a fire hose. I have stayed at school until midnight at least a few nights already. I wanted to write a quick note on sleep and I have a lot of great JP Morgan / Credit Suisse notes to type up….eventually.
A lot of people talk about various ways of having success in an MBA program but I think it is as simple as getting 8 hours of sleep every night. The thing is that there will just be an endless supply of academic, recruiting, and social events and you can’t do it all. The best way to deal with this is to really block out 8 hours of sleep and then work the rest of your day from there.
Without proper sleep, you can’t be at the top of your game academically, recruiting-wise, or socially.
