Apple Watch competitions & motivation theory

  • Say nice words, appreciate their work (such as in pizza-money-welldone experiment performed by Duke University psychology professor Dan Ariely — really have that read, it’s showing so many insights on motivation)
  • Reward your people with some physical things — just send them a postcard. Really, it works great, and is so memorable during the 21st century. It will keep ’em going, they will put that on their fridge and stare at it each morning.
  • Build emotional connections between people — that helps great with commitment to some work being done. I’m much more resilient to go hanging out when I have some emotional commitment to my colleague — a promise that I will finish the work first.
