I watched this Ted Talk, from Dan Ariely at TedX  Río de la Plata twice this weekend.  I was so mesmerized by his description of motivation that I needed to watch a second time so that I could internalize some of it.

Ariely studies what behaviors leaders can do to increase or decrease motivation in those they are leading.  One of my favorite parts of his research is that Ariely has research participants put together Lego Bionicles.

I think that there are huge implications here for education, youth development and ministry.  What implications do you see in Ariely’s presentation?
