Alfie Kohn
“Some who support [more] coercive strategies assume that children will run wild if they are not controlled. However, the children for whom this is true typically turn out to be those accustomed to being controlled— those who are not trusted, given explanations, encouraged to think for themselves, helped to develop and internalize good values, and so on. Control breeds the need for more control, which is used to justify the use of control.”

“bonuses don't really motivate workers. Once they reach a certain baseline salary, money is no longer the main driver. They need something more. Reams have been written about the Millennial generation's hunter for impact and meaning at work. In one way, I think Millennials (and Generation Z) are not so different from the rest of us. They just voice the desires the rest of us have learned to keep quiet.”

Ray Dalio
“Once we get the things we are striving for, we rarely remain satisfied with them. The things are just the bait. Chasing after them forces us to evolve, and it is the evolution and not the rewards themselves that matters to us and to those around us. This means that for most people success is struggling and evolving as effectively as possible.”
Ray Dalio, Principles: Life and Work

“Heaven is seeking reward for doing something good and hell is fear after doing something bad.”

Dennis Prager
“Regarding the afterlife, any belief in a just God must mean the good are rewarded and the evil are punished. It is axiomatic that if there is a God and if that God is just, there is ultimate justice. And since such justice rarely exists in this world—just think of young children murdered in terrorist attacks or mistreated by abusive parents—ultimate justice must take place in the next world. A Talmudic passage teaches, ‘There is no reward for the commandments [mitzvot] in this world,’ meaning God does not reward the faithful in this world.
That does not mean there aren’t rewards for leading a religious life in this world. There certainly are. But they differ from rewards in the next world in that they are not dispensed by God; they are intrinsic to leading a good religious life. The reward for keeping God’s laws is in the keeping of the laws.
If one wants additional, divine, rewards for keeping one, some, or all of God’s laws, it can only mean that individual finds little, or nothing, intrinsically rewarding in the keeping of the law(s).”
Dennis Prager, The Rational Bible: Exodus

“Always look at all the award not so much as a symbol of your personal success, but as a reminder of the responsibility that you have towards the world, you live in.”
Dr Prem Jagyasi

“Choices are made by thoughtful action..results are either the rewards we give our self or the discomfort we share with others.”
