Government should think of recruiting people only for a short period (5 years) for a short service . This recruitment should take people only fresh graduates or ones with less that 3 years of experience. After the 5 years or service people should be let go and they can now join a private organization as a 5 year experienced candidate. But in case they decide they can stay a couple more years not more than that. This period is only to assist them to be in job until they find a private job.
There could be multiple benefits of this arrangement. The first I can think of is that government will have fresh/young graduates rather than the ageing old staff. Do away with retirement benefits and hence saving Crores of pension burden on the government. Freshers should be recruited so this would take care jobs for graduates.
For senior posts again people can be recruited back who have experience more than 15 yrs or so.
What drives innovation. Over the time although one gains knowledge from experience and craves for innovation all the way he is reminded that one needs to practice humility. But wait… isn’t it true that those with courage and perseverance achieve what they desire.
So is it right to say “Innovation = Courage + perseverance”
We all know “Courage + perseverance” need not always result in Innovation what we actually need here is Intellectual Autonomy with Confidence in reason along with Intellectual Courage and the most importantly … Intellectual perseverance.
Intellectual perseverance defined as the disposition to work one’s way through intellectual complexities despite the frustration inherent in the task. Some intellectual problems are complex and cannot be easily solved. The intellectually perseverant person displays firm adherence to rational principles despite the irrational opposition of others, and has a realistic sense of the need to struggle with confusion or unsettled questions over an extended time to achieve understanding or insight. (Taken from the book Critical Thinking By Richard Paul & Linda Elder)
While a lot of innovative ideas start with independent thinking, courage a lack of intellectual perseverance kills it prematurely so to me the Secret ingredient for innovation is Intellectual perseverance.
