http://www.ted.com Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories -- and maybe, a way forward.

Ten years later still, I'm just now hearing about the science. Let's see, 10 plus his 40 he mentioned makes 50 years of deliberately ignoring wisdom, which is the bulk of my lifetime. No wonder instead of paradise, I live in squalor and economic intimidation. Truth may be persistent, but lies get all the financial backing. Blessings

• Rewards do work in a surprisingly narrow band of circumstances.
• Rewards often destroy creativity.
• The secret to high performance isn't rewards and punishments. but that unseen intrinsic drive.
We shout get past this lazy, dangerous, ideology of carrots and sticks, we can change the world.
Joseph White
Some people are motivated by things other than money. When I'm at work, I just want to get it done so I can get back home to my family. (raises his hand.) If you want to get great work out of me, give me more time off from work. Strange, eh?

The Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, commonly referred to as the Nobel Prize in Economics, is an award for outstanding contributions to the field of economics, and generally regarded as the most prestigious award for that field. The award's official name is The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel (Swedish: Sveriges riksbanks pris i ekonomisk vetenskap till Alfred Nobels minne).


The prize was established in 1968 by a donation from Sweden's central bank, the Sveriges Riksbank to the Nobel Foundation to commemorate the bank's 300th anniversary. As it is not one of the prizes that Alfred Nobel established in his will in 1895, it is not a Nobel Prize.

3M has been doing 15% time for decades before 1998, when Google was founded. Just saying.

First of all, what about both in the same time... hello?

This person has wasted part of his life saying bullshit. In 10 minutes I realized that the reward is always the best choice, the important thing is to divide the task until it becomes mechanical. Pathetic

One: Those 20th century rewards,
those motivators we think are a natural part of business,

do work, but only in a surprisingly narrow band of circumstances.

Two: Those if-then rewards often destroy creativity.

Three: The secret to high performance isn't rewards and punishments,

but that unseen intrinsic drive--

the drive to do things for their own sake.

The drive to do things cause they matter.

dude this dude lowkey understands and believes some of the most radically primitive ideologies of philosophy and leftist theory, but disguises it in a capitalistic tone so that he can make real change. he fucking gets it

The paradox of choice | Barry Schwartz The puzzle of motivation | Dan Pink 1 year ago   20:23

TED
http://www.ted.com Psychologist Barry Schwartz takes aim at a central tenet of western societies: freedom of choice. In Schwartz's estimation, choice has made us not freer but more paralyzed, not happier but more dissatisfied.
