Portfolio Website and Musings of a Strategic Design Leader

[ Random Thoughts ]


I’m currently 5 weeks into my Design Entrepreneurship program at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), and despite my misgivings about being the right person to teach this subject, it has been an enjoyable experience. Not to mention my surprise that I have a hand-full of students “sitting-in” the course just because they are interested in it.

As they say, if you every wanted to solidify your learnings about a subject, go ahead and teach it. That being said, I notice something interesting about this whole entrepreneurship thing. 80% of being an entrepreneur is all about the process and understanding of running a business. The other 20% is having the right mindset.

What is interesting is that despite being the smaller part of this Pareto equation, the 20% mindset drives the success of the other 80%. Food for thought.
