Life has remained extremely busy and work, studying and FunctioninART have taken up all of my time. It is now time for a new blog.
As I sit on the couch, with the olympic 10 000m race playing on the TV in the background and Lauren making pancakes for church tomorrow, I am thinking about how life is what we make of it. Not to become too philosophical, life is short and needs to be lived.
The Olympics 2012 have been much better for South Africa but unfortunately tonight Mokoena did not do too well in the long jump. We have got to watch only a few of the events due to the fact that the SABC only show certain events. Today we got to see some Track racing at the velodrome and learnt a little about the sport and what it entails.
Definition: The team pursuit is a race with two opposing teams, starting on each side of the track. The winner is determined by either catching the other team or recording the fastest time. The men event is run over four kilometres by teams of four riders. The women event is run over three kilometres by teams of three riders.
If you want to know more about track cycling click here for the rules. I did not realise that there were so many rules right dont to the size of the bikes and the colour of the paint on the track.
So thats a little about what is taking up most of the news at the moment… Well done Shelly-Ann and Jamaica for the women’s 100m.
Okay that is enough about the Olympics and on to Organisational behaviour.
So my Organisational behaviour module for my MBA is showing me how in business we dont really practice what the theory teaches us. The practice is varied and wide and I have been reminded that as a manager it is up to you to determine what you and your staff produce. Remember to stay positive.
Please remember that FunctioninART’s Indiegogo campaign is running and we are still awaiting the first contribution….. it could be you.
