I’ve discovered in life that there are 3 ways of motivating people.
1. Rewarding them;
2. Putting the fear of death into them;
3. Feeding them.
Now obviously only two of those options are realistic in todays modern society, I’m sure a lot of people are thinking back to the “good old” days where rewarding other people was the best way to obtain the desired outcome.
I had the need the other day, to inject some motivation into a group of people, and barring simply bringing a big stick (refer to method 2 above), I decided that the more politically correct method would be to shower them with delicious eats instead.
So it was back to the kitchen for the LIB, with a simple brief: a small snack, something that can be eaten with one hand, using pretzels, and something that we haven’t really seen before.
What we got, besides being short of amazing, where these:
Unfortunately, the sandwiches are even easier to eat than they are to make! I did show some amazing resilience, and saved “some” for the people for who they were actually intended.
And how where they received? Well lets just say that the job was done in record time! The sweetness of the peanut-butter is complemented by the saltines of the pretzel, and the dark chocolate just rounds it off (at times I was wondering whether we shouldn’t just have dipped the entire sandwich into the chocolate).
Hey, we’re all allowed to dream aren’t we?
