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...

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.
