    So true Johan. Thanks for reminding me what important part accountability (holding yourself accountable) plays in ones leadership setup and makeup.

    Johan, your post help me realise that I also have good reasons why I sometimes put important things on the backburner. Good luck with your new commitment!

    Hi Johan
    Our recent discussion about PhD’s is fresh in my memory and what a delight to have you back! Your motivation is now part of my motivation. Though even if there are so many good reasons to complete, at least one of my reasons for a PhD is absolutely not to be taken seriously, and that is to convince my loving wife to buy me a colourful bowtie…which goes to show we must have fun in the process as well.

    Hello Johan, it’s Amani from Belmont University in Tennessee. It’s been a week or so from the time you have posted this blog, I hope you are staying fully committed to your goal. One thing I really got to appreciate about you during the short time we studied at Stellenbosch was the fact that you are a learning man, a person who is always seeking more knowledge. I must hold myself accountable and must continue to seek more knowledge, as well. I hope all is well, family, work, wine and give Nandi a good rub down on her stomach for me. Also the pictures from the day we played golf are on the Picasa website; send me an email so I can send you the link to view the pictures.

    Hallo Johan,

    Jy was as dosent een van my rolmodelle by die MilAkad (MA95) en het my (sonder jou medewete) gedryf om verder te swot – wel ek het vier jaar aan my PhD gewerk en dit aan die begin van 2010 verwerf. Dit was sekerlik die moeilikste taak wat ek in my lewe aangepak het (veral saam met werk en gesin), maar dis die moeite werd. Baie deure het oopgegaan – vandag sit ek met ‘n goeie kwalifikasie en begin 1 Januarie 2011 as senior lektor in ondernemingsbestuur en entrepreneurskap by die PUK.
    As mense my gevra het hoe ver is ek met my PhD het ek altyd gesê ek vorder,maar nooit verdere detail verskaf nie.
    Baie sterkte!
