How can we raise Singapore’s productivity? That is the multi-billion dollar question.
A recent report in Business Times offered suggestions by economists to lower the steep productivity growth targets for Singapore from 2-3 percent per annum to 1-1.5 percent. Various suggestions such as supporting Research & Development for the PIC scheme (which IRAS already supports by the way), and offering discounts for not hitting the foreign worker hiring ratio were suggested.

How do you define success? Can it be measured by wealth or power alone?
Apparently no. Not least according to Arianna Huffington, founder and editor of Huffington Post Media Group – one of the world’s most influential news and information brands.

Why do some people perform amazingly well while others falter despite starting off at similar positions in life?
The difference, according to eminent Stanford psychologist Dr Carol Dweck, is in the mind. Or more accurately, one’s mindset.
Speaking at an episode of Knowledge for Men, Dr Dweck believed that success isn’t predicated on one’s intelligence or talent. Rather, it is embodied by how one perceives and copes with failures and setbacks. This difference accounts for why kids who are academically on par may achieve vastly different outcomes in their eventual careers.
How one views failure and success can be determined by whether one has a fixed mindset or a growth mindset.
