One of the benefits of my post MBA full-time job offer is being able to delay my start date until three months after graduation. Unlike most of my peers who are entering consulting for the first time, I know first-hand how stressful the lifestyle is and therefore wanted to delay my return to the workforce as long as I possibly could.
I vowed that during this “pre-employment” period, I would balance relaxation with at least some amount of productivity. Thus far, my relaxation objective is definitely winning over. My sleep schedule has veered into European time zones and I usually have to ask myself what day it is.
I feel that for me to become productive, I need some structure during this pre-work period. The first step to doing that is to have goals. Some of these are fairly easy, but it’s always good to have some low-hanging-fruit to get the ball rolling. If I can achieve at least half of these objectives before my start date in September, I’ll be very satisfied. Completed items are bolded and/or linked.
