Day 165 - Project 14.
Day 165 - Hey readers. If the title of this post, Project 14, sounds like the title of a top secret experiment, then let your imagination run wild with government conspiracies and covert operations. Or, let me tell you about Project 14, which could be considered an experiment but definitely not a secret.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about about my struggle and success in the altMBA workshop. I'm not going to sugar coat it for you. It was an intense four weeks. While in the middle of the workshop, my life became a mess. There were days I ended up eating a cold corn dog for dinner at eleven-thirty at night. I'd be hammering away at deep philosophical learnings while trying to solve how to make an impact with my life. In short, my brain hurt. Everything felt uncomfortable. To put it lightly, I stretched myself beyond the person I thought I could be. The altMBA, however, was short term pain for a long term gain. Looking back it was an incredible four weeks, full of amazing people, and the opportunity to see my life from a wide-frame perspective.
Let's get back to Project 14. It's the last and final project for the altMBA. In this project, I am asked to share with you my incredible learnings gathered over the course. Some of you as readers, friends and family have already asked the following questions: "What is the altMBA?" "Do you get a certificate?" "Was it worth the time sink?" "Who is Seth Godin?" "Why did you do the class?" "Why did you disappear for four weeks?" "Did you like the class?" "What did you learn?" and the list goes on. In short, people were and are curious. While each person's experience at the altMBA can be very different, this video captures my key learnings of the altMBA. I hope the video answers some of your pressing questions:
Have more questions? Still curious? Do you want to talk more, grab coffee and a donut? Today's project is to create dialogue and drop me an email to get chatting. This workshop changed me. I'm confident if you are ready, it will change you too. Looking forward to hearing from you, future students.
