The purpose of school at Indus is reimagined - to be startup-ready in a world that is uncertain, chaotic and fluid. Being startup-ready should not be viewed in a narrow business sense as the desirability of establishing startups. This is one option. There is another wider option, and that is to be a life entrepreneur.
In a leadership context, to be a life entrepreneur is the pursuit of excellence. The word ‘excellence’ is one of the most misunderstood words and needs clarification. There is a difference between “being excellent” and “pursuing excellence”.
Being excellent is quantifiable, as it is the quality of being unique, being an outlier. On the other hand, excellence is a way of life: (1) a journey and process for one’s self-renewal; and (2) for realising one’s potential and happiness.
Excellence is, therefore, the art of living.
With warm regards,
