Hi everyone! Almost missed today!
I’ve been working on a proposal to create the “Life Design Institute” on my campus (UNCG); in final stages of writing my proposal to propose the Institute.
No links today, but would appreciate feedback.
One of the things that I’ve been pondering is a comprehensive definition of the “entrepreneurial spirit.” I want to come up with something that didn’t sound like it was focused on starting a business, but about adding value, serving the needs of the world, and making the world a better place. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
“promotes the development of the entrepreneurial spirit by: (1) becoming deeply engaged in and committed to personally rewarding purposeful, passionate goals; (2) being intentional and resilient in taking calculated risks to create value and generate meaningful results despite obstacles and adversity; and (3) using creativity and resourcefulness to design a better life and a better future for yourself and for others.”
I was inspired by William Damon’s book, “The Path to Purpose: How Young People Find Their Calling in Life.” You can see a synopsis of the book (by Brian Johnson) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=oWIxXeef17Y
If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks a million! I appreciate you!
