Quote

The way we choose to motivate people says a great deal about how we feel about them. When we have faith in someone and respect for the task, enticing them with treats becomes unnecessary. Faith and respect alone inspire their action. However, if the task seems distasteful to us, or the doer unworthy of our faith, then we resort to “carrot dangling.” This “treat for tricks” technique may work well for animal trainers, but I doubt it serves us well in raising a future generation of thinkers and problem solvers.
