I just saw a cool video on a blog by Robert Scoble on why he works at Rackspace.
It is a quite an interesting video, that shows that the purpose of creating anything is the most important when motivating people.
The video mentions studies that prove that a large bonus does not make us perform better jobs. That is the normal assumption, but people just want to get enough for them to survive and not caring about money.
I’m trying to work for a purpose and make the purpose grand enough that figaf.com and caseish.com, will trive. But I have probably not set the goal high enough and made it clear what the purpose is really about.
