You know those times when you do something you thought you couldn’t do, and it doesn’t even seem hard once you’ve done it? I did one this morning. What’s more, so did over half the class.
It’s the POM part of the MBA, the only part I’m really here for: soft ‘people’ skills, the reason I never considered doing this thing by distance learning. A performance coach taught a simple memory technique, wrote the names of 20 objects on the board, and asked us to memorise the list.
Over two hours later (I’ve just checked) I can recall all 20 objects, IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY WERE LISTED. Wow. Double wow. Holy-f***ing-shit kind of double wow.
And it was nice that we share the same tailor. (He namechecked The English Tailor, and I knew instantly he was talking about Thomas Mahon.)
