This issue we’re tak­ing a look at sports and ed­u­ca­tion – ways to achieve high stakes goals with hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion.

It’s a fit­ting topic with the re­cent launch of the Countdown to the Asian Games, which marked the one year countdown to the Games. Ath­letes from around the con­ti­nent will flock to Jakarta and Palem­bang, South Su­ma­tra, next Au­gust in the hopes of win­ning medals and pride for their coun­tries. While the ath­letes are work­ing hard pre­par­ing, so too are In­done­sia’s or­ga­niz­ers. With a tight bud­get and in­fra­struc­ture woes, will we be ready in time?

Next we talk to Brook Wil­liams Ross, the founder of In­done­sia Ed­u­ca­tion Part­ner­ships, about the chal­lenges in match­ing ed­u­ca­tion and the needs of a fu­ture labour mar­ket. What was once com­mon ad­vice no longer fits the needs of a mar­ket or the in­ter­ests of a young per­son. How we meet that gap is vi­tal to fu­ture suc­cesses. Un­til next time,

Let the fu­ture tell the truth, and eval­u­ate each one ac­cord­ing to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the fu­ture, for which I have re­ally worked, is mine. Nikola Tesla
