Hi everyone. It's Friday night. Or maybe Saturday morning. These things kind of blur with each other. Either way, this post will be covering the events of Friday, July 26th. It was the second real classroom day this week. We learned about the differences between profitability and profit growth. Remember, revenue = total money earned. Profit is revenue minus costs.
Thanks for being a good sport, Mr. Hao. We also learned about value creation. We have a little chart with price, cost, and value. There was a little section about customer service and experience effect, and economies of scale. I feel so much smarter than when I started.
Later that day, I played volleyball. I kicked butt. Just kidding. I'm too out of practice. Then we helped our friend go to downtown Palo Alto to catch up with his group.
This is Julia. I taught her how to solve a Rubik's Cube. She also wanted to be on my blog. You better see this, Julia. I can't believe that week two is pretty much over. It went by so fast. So very fast. Now that it's Friday, (or maybe Saturday, I discussed this before) I can see that my time here at Stanford is not very long. It encourages me to take advantage of this even more than I already am. this can be a metaphor for life, everyone. You need to realize that your time on this earth is not very long. Do what matters. Make a difference. Inspire people by writing a blog. (This only works if your name is Joe.) Goodbye. I'll not see you all tomorrow evening. But I'll write at you.
