Tip of the Week: Carrots and Sticks

All relationships use both rewards and punishments.  Carrots and sticks can each be very motivational,  but the best results happen when we understand the following:

>A carrot dangles in front, a stick strikes from behind.

>A carrot attracts, a stick repels.

>A carrot is a focal point, a stick means pain.

>A carrot is a goal to strive toward, a stick is something to be avoided.

>A carrot can add to good feelings, a stick's most positive result is the lack of bad feelings.

>A carrot strengthens relationships, a stick increases separation.

>You can move someone with a stick, you can steer someone with a carrot.
