I was reading through some Harvard Business Review articles in the QSR at Kellogg when I decided to do a quick Google search of “kellogg mba” to see where this little ole’ blog of mine falls.  It’s been moving off and on the first page of results for quite some time, presumably as a result of my increased/decreased posting and Google’s tweaking of their search algorithm.  Much to my delight, today I found it nestled in between the #3 result from Accepted.com and the #5 result from Wikipedia; that’s right, I was #4!

<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"> </div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">I’m a big fan of setting goals for myself, since it keeps me focused and motivated, and getting “to the point where my blog is one of the top 5 results that pops up when you search for “kellogg mba” on Google” was one of them.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">
</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">HUGE thanks to all of you that drop by and read my posts, add your perspective and insights (via comments), and provide invaluable advice for my public speaking (it is all much appreciated).  </div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">
</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">The biggest benefit that I derive from maintaining this blog is the opportunity to interact with people that I otherwise might not have come across.  Seriously, how cool is it that we can so easily form friendships and interact with people that are thousands of miles away?</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">
