“Success ke piche mat bhaago, excellence ka picha karo. Success jhak marke tumhare paas aaygi”
Let’s trace our steps backwards.
Are you process-focused or outcome-focused? In a fiercely competitive world, it's easy to fall prey to prioritizing marks over developing valuable skills. However, it's time to shift our focus & embrace the chase for excellence. This mindset empowers individuals to invest in skill development & recognize that marks fade away, while skills remain a lifelong asset.
Our society often measures success by high marks, prestigious titles, & material achievements. However, true success lies in the ability to excel in one's field & contribute meaningfully, which tends to follow higher status & recognition automatically.
In the pursuit of excellence & skill development, it's crucial to understand the two contrasting approaches:
The outcome-focused approach- emphasizes achieving results or end goals. For example, students may solely focus on earning high grades in exams. While this may yield immediate outcomes, it often overlooks the importance of building a solid foundation of skills, & limits long- term growth.
Conversely, the process-focused approach- centres on continuous improvement & recognizes that skill development & excellence are cultivated through deliberate practice, perseverance, & a commitment to mastery. For instance, a musician dedicated to this approach will focus on honing their techniques, practising consistently, exploring new musical styles & seeking consistent improvement.
When it comes to skill development, the process-focused approach is more closely aligned. Following this approach, the process of NELTAS exams also sends a child on a journey of improvement where they enter a unique loop.
In the first- Assessment Level, students: -LEARN: Acquire the necessary knowledge & skills for the exam.
- • APPLY: Put their learnings into practice during the exam.
- • ASSESS: Get personalized reports to analyze their areas for improvement.
- • LEARN (again): Improve their skills based on the insights gained.
- • APPLY their skills once again in the final round.
By prioritizing the process, individuals delve deeper into their chosen field, develop a thorough understanding of underlying concepts, & are willing to invest in deliberate practice, experimentation & continuous learning. This approach fosters a growth mindset, empowering individuals to excel in life.
Furthermore, young minds have a natural aptitude for learning & can also consolidate knowledge more effectively. By encouraging & fostering skill development early on, we lay a strong foundation for lifelong learning & equip our younger generation with the tools they need to navigate an ever-evolving future.
Let’s remember that true success lies not in chasing marks but in embracing the lifelong journey
of growth & learning, to become the best versions of ourselves.
