Indore: At the inauguration of fifth batch of general management programme for executives, Indian Institute of Management Indore director Himanshu Rai discussed about three Ps of life. “The first P is purpose -sense of purpose, the fact that you’re here should be derived from some bigger purpose for life. The second P is passion – you should be passionate about learning, and not merely getting degree, for the only way you can guarantee happiness for yourself is doing what you love.
The third P is perseverance – come what may, there are no shortcuts. You always need to work hard and the door of opportunity opens only for those who work hard,” he said while addressing the new batch of 33 participants. Rai appreciated them for ‘taking this bold decision’ of pursing studies after gap. “People tend to put certain things in a certain brackets of age. Every time you think of doing something new, something different, people will tell you why it shouldn’t be done and why you shouldn’t be the person doing that.
My advice is, listen to these people. But listen to your heart and then only you will be able to make the right decision,” he said. The chief guest was Mahesh Sharma, CEO, Flexituff International Limited. In his address, Sharma said one needs to determine his/her passion and need to find out what he/she loves to do. “This is the question one needs to find out before taking any decision in life,” he said.
