The Five Characteristics of Successful Innovators

There is not much agreement about what makes an idea innovative, and what makes an innovative idea valuable. For example, discussions on whether the internet is a better invention than the wheel are more likely to reveal personal preferences than logical argumentation. Likewise, experts disagree on the type and level of innovation that is most beneficial for organizations. Somestudiessuggest that radical innovation (which does sound sexy) confers sustainable competitive advantages, butothersshow that “mild” innovation – think iPhone 5 rather than the original iPhone – is generally more effective, not least because it reduces market uncertainty.

Aadhaar Card

How to Check Aadhaar Card Status Online
Applied for an Aadhaar card but still haven't received it? You can easily check the status of your application online. All you need is a copy of the acknowledgement slip that you are given after your visit to the enrolment centre. If you have that, then this is an easy process.
An Aadhaar card is an official government-issued identity card for Indians. Many government institutions accept this card as a proof of identity and some require that you produce your Aadhaar card. The card is issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on behalf of the government. It's steadily being linked to a growing number of government functions, and continues to grow in importance, so it's probably a good idea to get an Aadhaar card, even if you don't necessarily need one yet.
Follow these steps to check the status of your Aadhaar card application online.
Head to the Aadhaar status page on the UIDAI website.
  1. Check your Aadhaar acknowledgement slip. At the top you will see the 14-digit enrolment number and a 14-digit date and time of enrolment.
  2. Key in these two numbers in the EID and Date/ Time fields respectively.
  3. Type the captcha in the field labelled Enter the Security Code.
  4. Click Check Status.
This will reveal the status of your Aadhaar enrolment application. This is only for checking the status of a new application. If you have misplaced your card, and want to print out a copy that you can use, then check out how to download a copy of your Aadhaar card.
How to Download a Copy of Your Aadhaar Card
If you've misplaced your Aadhaar card, don't panic because you can easily download a fresh copy. It needs you to know your Aadhaar number, but you can easily look that up online.
The unique 12-digit government identification is not compulsory to have, but it serves as an identity proof on most forms that you'll fill, and some government agencies also require the Aadhaar these days. It is issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the Indian government.
The good thing about Aadhaar is that unlike some other identity cards, its digital copy, downloaded from the UIDAI website, is as valid as the original card. So whether you've misplaced your card and need a new one, or just wanted to get a digital copy of the card to submit with a form online, the official website has you covered.
