ISB never sleeps

At 4 am, one would expect all of ISB to be asleep as classes start at 8.30 am. I went out about ten minutes ago to put my assingment in the drop-box. I hear loud music being played out of a room. A couple standing and chatting. A lady walking into the printer room to pick up her assignment. A couple of guys walking on the road encircling our main building.

It is amazing on one side and quite amusing on the other, where we get all this energy from to sustain sleep deprivation and how we manage to procrastinte things to bring ourselves to a situation where all assignments end up being due in next 6 hours. Every time. And have not heard of anyone having defaulted on submiting assignments on time.

One thing we will never complain about when we go back to the corporate world will be overload of work.

haha..

once you realise that staying up late and doing things is possible, you just end up managing time to ensure that that happens. Sure, there are quite a few times here at IIMA that I've really needed to skip sleep, but many of those 4am nights could've been avoided.

agree with u. realize that life is not too different at IIMA either.

perhaps procrastinating is ingrained in human behavior.

thanks for writing.

cheers

Hi pal,
Why does one have to deprive sleep and spoil our health in the long term? Human body needs minimum hours of sleep everynight and if deprived cud end up spoiling our long term health. Our B schools just spoil our health in the name of future corporate demands and corporate culture. I definitely don't want to be a part of this rat race.
