As I have started to read Drive I have noticed that it is not a book that you can read all at once and understand it. It takes some time to soak in all of the information that it is telling us. I have to admit that it's not first book that I would reach out to to read as a pleasure, but I have really gotten a lot of information from it. And I know that there is a lot of information that we (the Seniors!) should look into and try to make this year very memorable.
What I thought that was really interesting was when Pink talks about carrots and sticks. I never thought that rewards could be like addicting drugs when not given properly. I used to be a strong believer in always giving rewards. Rewards make people happy. But now I see that sometimes giving rewards all the time can be a bad thing. I think that looking deeper into the carrots and sticks issues can really help us as the leaders in how to discipline and reward students the right way for example in crew, chores...

my beginning thoughts on Drive

Well, I find that the book Drive is a pretty good book. Whoever hasn't started reading I suggest you start reading it. Its a pretty intersting book, it tells you alot of outside information about stuff which I find pretty cool because its information. Who doesn,t want to know stuff! Anyways its also helping me find that inner motivation I need to do the things that I want to do. Its helped me realize the thing that i want to do for my senior project, which i think it might be a long shot but im willing to try it out because it something i really want to do. It made me think about the things that i want to do and how I am going to get those things done and the determination I need to get it done. It a really good book! Like i said before if you havent started reading it i highly suggest you start. Dont just read it to read it. Take time and actually try to understand the things it says in the book because its all useful stuff!!
