Have you made the MISTAKE of using EXTRINSIC REWARDS to stimulate INTRINSIC MOTIVATION?This is why you still have a CHANCE..

Adopted from the following great insight shared by Daniel Pink from the book Drive

IF-THEN extrinsic rewards have the sole purpose of short term benefits by stimulating desired behavior or compliance for doing routine bound , dreary tasks.

Upon realization that an environment is not suited for IF-THEN rewards , extrinsic rewards should be made unexpected and offered only when the task is complete.In other words , where IF-THEN awards are a mistake , shift to NOW-THAT rewards.
