Stepping Stones and Career Choices Belling the CAT

There are career options and there are career options.
And then there are some more.
Managers are not just the elite of the work force, they are the ones who ensure a smooth running of all operations.
Whether its a corporation or a conglomeration. 
Good managers have to acquire the art of making problems extremely interesting and their solutions so constructive that their solutions are attractive to all .
Some skills are inborn and some need to be acquired and learnt.
And of course ,some are gained with experience.
And to have that experience you need an MBA.

Focusing on your goals is important. But even more important is having a goal,without which you would be shooting well sharpened ,valuable arrows in the dark.
No, you wouldn't want to do that right?
So once you decide what you want to achieve in life-that may be as vague as money, power, fame, beauty,a solid fan following ...whatever, the next step is to acquire the most concrete means to achieve those desires.
Of course,you need to push yourself to the point of no return...and tremendous pain-you do know that there is no gain without pain.
So excel in your studies ,and try your best to take admission in a good programme in college.
After all well begun is half done.
Start prepping for your CAT exams well in time. Maybe from your second or even your first year of college. It doesnt matter what subject you choose to graduate in-you'll never be at a disadvantage. If you are an engineer, you may have to work harder than your pals who are commerce or economics graduate. But at the end of the day...Its all about the faith you have in yourself.
Faith CAN move mountains.
Keep researching for CAT exam tips and keep abreast with the current affairs.
Register with websites to guide you about all the news about the CMAT entrance exams too. 
You must keep your grades up for graduation too,your MBA will not look too good with a low university ranking.
Make sure you are well groomed and confident, only a confident person has the ability to achieve his/her dreams.
Log on to websites like to ensure you have all dates and details right.
Once you are well equipped, and well prepared ,nothing can be a barrier between you and your success. You will "Bell the CAT".

Keep reaching higher and cross all the stones that prevent you from rising.
Shine on and all the best!

Stepping Stones -A career in Medicine

Shonda Rhimes is my favorite creator of TV shows. I am not a TV junkie ,but Greys Anatomy is my favorite TV show.
I have done marathons with popcorn and coffee to end up with puffy eyes ,but a decidedly happy feeling in my heart.
Doctors can work miracles.
Sometimes, they can't but mostly they try. Its not that I have a squeamish streak, I know that had I tried hard enough I could have been anything other than a baker...
I could be creating 3d ears with the new printers for crying out loud...
But when I think back , I'd rather create the ears with Fondant, thank you. 
However, baking is not a career choice that I would recommend to the children in class 9 or 10 or in the most important 11th or 12th. 
Those who are indeed impressed by Dr Derek Shepherd or Dr Meredith Grey ,a career in medicine is a very good option in india.
If you count on your fingertips, there are only 671 medical colleges in India. So on an average, we produce only about 20000 doctors yearly. For a population size of 1.3 billion human souls ,this is a pitiable number. 
I am aware that admission into medical colleges is probably the most difficult thing to get in our country ,but if students can secure 99% or percentile in their class 12 or senior secondary examinations  then I don't think cracking the AIPMT exams should be a big deal. Yes ,it needs your sweat and blood and tears and maybe some sacrifices of staying disconnected from the world ,but the efforts will pay off soon. In monetary terms and blessings and success. 
The problems most parents and children face are in getting the right guidance and correct information. 
Since my child is also at that stage where he has decisions to make and a goal to centre all his efforts for, I have begun scouting and noting information that may be useful later.
College Dunia offers such a platform where information to all Medical Entrance list and all entrance exams and to the most elite medical College in India-AIIMS is given in detail. The AIIMS entrace exam details are stated in detail here.
The entrance exams are clubbed under the All India Pre Medical Test.
Find out more by logging into the website and going through all info provided.

Remember, forewarned is forearmed.
After all this is a battle that you have to win.
If you have a dream ,have the strength to achieve it.
Best of luck!

Until the next
