Entrepreneurship and Professional Education

Kerala’s economy is essentially a wage economy. Entrepreneurship is restricted to trade, transport and tourism, all of which are low knowledge -intensive sectors. Recently, the government has started playing an active role in promoting entrepreneurial skills and infrastructure for encouraging start-ups. However, in a traditional economy that is stuck in low - productivity vicious circles, the government will need to address structural bottlenecks to change the attitude, values and perceptions of the people of Kerala, so as to promote entrepreneurship among them.

Through my interactions with students I came to realize, the lack of good habits are the shackles that grip them back. Thus, I decided to write my first blog about one of my favorite books on habits.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Stephen Covey
“We need strong habits in our lives in order to achieve greatness”
Aristotle once said “we are what we repeatedly do, excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”
