A Happy New Year to everyone!

First term has gone quickly and intensively. Since I could not review daily life for the period, I want to review and think about Resolutions to year 2013.

  • Review of 2012
    When I come to Rady, I planed my short term 3months-goal as below. My review for each goal is…

    1. Learning US business environment and using English naturally as first language
      *40%; Development of English fluency is not as fast as I expected and have to think feasible way to improve it.
    2. Put value in each internship position
      *60%; at CONNECT, I build personal relationship with staff, developing annual report as output.
    3. Have open mind to absorb like an baby and positive attitude to contribute to discussion
      *80%
    4. Getting practical service skill(tennis)
      *30%; Though I find good coach, I couldn’t improve tennis skill so much because I failed to secure time for lesson

      Other than above, in terms of academic, I planed to get above 3.2GPA for first year. On the other hand, I fortunately could get A score in all 4 courses for Fall Term with 3.9GPA. Though GPA itself has limited meanings to me, I am satisfied with the grade compared to my undergrad GPA 2.6 since one reason of MBA is surely learning new concepts. Especially I am happy to see I get A for my favorite leadership class where 40% of grade depends on evaluation from professor and other classmates since it would be one criteria of contribution to class.

  • Resolutions to year 2013
    Therefore, I hope to modify past goals, making new goal for 2013 as below. I particularly focus on 1,2, and 5.
  1. Develop “emphasy to others” and “conflict management”
  2. Getting paid-internship position in US without merit of skills as Japanese
  3. Forgetting Japanese language to acquire English thinking process
    *Use extension course, watch News/Drama everyday, read the Economist, build vocabulary via online, and expand network to domestic friends
  4. Getting high academic score(above 3.6GPA)
  5. Radically improving service skill(tennis)
    *Take regularly based lesson from Todd Nelson 1~2 times per month. Also challenge tryout again to UCSD Club Tennis.
