Stick It To The Carrot
First, I think he obviously has a point. We’ve all had that sneaking suspicion, at some point in our lives, that carrots and sticks may not be the be-all and end-all of motivation techniques. Some people seem to get by with just the minimum, while others are burning the midnight oil with no external trigger whatsoever. And under pretty similar circumstances, that is.
Second, the production quality is just stunning. You rarely see a great topic so masterfully illustrated for maximum impact. Okay, it’s post-produced and all that, and you could never possibly deliver something like this live and in PowerPoint. But still, there’s a benchmark for you.
It has been a real blessing for me that, for most of my life, my motivation to do stuff has been overwhelmingly intrinsic, and greatly satisfying – and I still have a whole lot of work that is inspiring, meaningful, and important to me ahead.
So would you please excuse me while I get right to it…3
