There's a particular type of job promotion that can lead to guilt and insecurity. More about the unearned status gain: http://hbs.me/1JsNrFs
Receiving an unexpected professional status bump doesn't always feel good, especially if it wasn't really earned. Companies need to be aware of potential problems with unearned status gain, and be ready with solutions, says Tsedal Neeley .

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

"My first job involved working onboard the trains between Shanghai and Zhengzhou, China, during the sweltering, sticky summer peak.

The train ecosystem was competitive: people fighting for a spot, daring passengers jumping through windows to get on and off, and thieves lurking in the crowds. I had to push a heavy trolley full of drinks, noodles, and meal boxes down an endless aisle full of hungry, angry, and frustrated passengers. Giant passengers, twice my size, would glare at me as I was coming down the tight aisle. Cunning thieves would try to distract me so they could steal my cash bag. Sickly passengers would confide in my innocence and complain about the steamy air quality. Desperate passengers would seek my assistance to help them get seats for their frail relatives. Famished and destitute passengers would resort to violence and aggression and try to take food.

It was a chaotic environment for a cheerful, naive teenager. This experience taught me courage and determination. I learned how to take control of the situation, fight against whatever challenge to fulfill my job, and advocate for those who need my help.

Fifteen years later, I find myself in many similar environments in life – giant obstacles, severe competitions, various distractions, people who want to take advantage of me and people who truly need my help.

Life is a chaotic, crowded train.

But, l am determined to do whatever it takes, to fulfill my goals and help others fulfill theirs." — Chao Zeng

After being seriously injured in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan, Drew used HBS to help him move forward. His story: http://hbs.me/1gT1Uzp
What's the one thing you're most excited about learning at HBS? Entrepreneurship is something I've thought about before coming here and HBS has given me a number ways to look into it, like the Entrepreneurial Management class and FIELD III, which taught me a lot about team dynamics and how to ...

If a cutoff date is a mere suggestion for negotiations, maybe we all can relax.

37 percent of millennial women and 42 percent of those already married planned to interrupt their career for family.

Why more and more women are planning career pauses: http://hbs.me/1CU3ElZ
Even those with high ambitions are more likely than their predecessors to plan to scale back at work at certain times.

In today's global markets, companies have many choices to procure what they need to develop, build, and sell product. So who needs a manufacturing cluster, such as Detroit? Research by Gary Pisano and Giulio Buciuni shows that in some industries, location still matters. http://hbs.me/1gQSsMN

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

"I will make time.

Even as a child, I was a planner. Every hour was optimized, elaborate schedules carefully crafted. Looking over my shoulder, my mother would gently remind me: 'There are only twenty-four hours in a day.'

As I grew older, I found that twenty-four hours often just wasn't enough. Those earmarked 'sleep' were the easiest to redistribute, and any once allocated to introspection had long been dismissed as an indulgence. It never occurred to me, during this Tetris game of time allocation, that I could change time itself.

For the past twenty months, I put optimization aside and I made time.

I made time for unexpected conversations. For writing at sunrise.

I learned that every minute spent on reflection made the minutes that followed more valuable. Each unit of time was somehow amplified, its weight heavier with the intention it now carried.

My time is the only irreplaceable resource I have to offer this world. And now, that time flows with purpose, its direction informed by more than inertia and whim. There are still only twenty-four hours in a day, but I've discovered something powerful.

I can make time. I will make time.

I will make this life more than the sum of my days." —Jen Wu

Start strong, have a positive attitude, start to slow down, go to to many meetings telling me to celebrate diversity and dont offend anybody here illegally. Fade and become bitter, get arrested and have my career ruined for looking at a muslim funny, and kill myself after a long addiction with alcohol.
