Most people believe that the best way to motivate is with rewards like money—the carrot-­and-­stick approach. That's a mistake, says Daniel H. Pink (author of ). In this provocative and persuasive new book, he asserts that the secret to high performance and satisfaction-­at work, at school, and at home—is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of life. He examines the three elements of true motivation—autonomy, mastery, and purpose-­and offers smart and surprising techniques for putting these into action in a unique book that will change how we think and transform how we live.

Now he owns Detroit’s biggest pawnshop, American Jewelry and Loan, and is the star of the hit reality TV show. As a third-­generation pawnbroker, Gold grew up in the business, dealing with cus­tomers who could be unruly and violent as often as they were friendly.

Although he started at his family’s small pawnshop, he has now expanded into a fifty-­thousand-­square-­foot former bowling alley, making a thousand deals a day.

Thereby, I felt the urge to reflect my new experiences onto Yogurt book, by revisiting, revising and extending the contents. Though, I was so tired of the books written in "how-­to" style! It is funny to see there is still plenty of books claim to teach you the magic recipe. e.­g. how-­to build Agile teams in 10 steps, how-­to become master quickly in 4 steps, etc etc. As Musashi said; "You must understand that there is more than one path to the top of the mountain.­" My intention is neither to provide any kind of ultimate recipe, nor . . .
