Pleasure seeking behavior: What MBA students should know

While pursuing our business studies, we are often tempted by the need to get off our books. To do what? It could be (hey, this is a general discussion, we are not talking about me, here, ha ha):
  • Internet addiction
  • Facebook addiction
  • Cigarette addiction
  • Substance use / drug addiction
  • Music addiction
  • Beer / alcohol addiction
  • Socializing addiction
  • Food addiction
  • Love addiction
  • Chocolate addiction
  • Risk taking behavior addiction
  • Attention seeking addiction
  • Porn / sexual gratification addiction
  • ? Any other addictions you can think of?
These can be disturbances to our MBA studies, right? The question is - what makes us indulge in these types of behavior? Is it because somebody is a bad person? NO.

These are actually hormone dependent behaviors. It is the chemicals in the brain like DOPAMINE & Prolactin that make you hooked to these kinds of behaviors / substances, in part.

So what can one do about it? Realize that some of these may be UNNECESSARY cravings. Realize that every time one feels an urge to cater to one or many of these urges, ONE HAS TO FIGHT the urges.

MBA studies involves a LOT of hard work, bro. You can NEVER study enough. And even if you study ALL day, everyday, you can NOT know everything about everything during your MBA.

Its is important to realize this - and it is perhaps important to prioritize on what you want to focus on, as part of your future career. Fighting addictions, and focusing on your priorities are 2 tips that I can share today.

Cheers!
Gerry.
