Cool article on workplace incentives and motivation. It focuses on the factors external to work itself such as: friendships/relationships, comfort, and psychic reward. I like the cartoon pictures, so I'm reusing them here.

They say the BRIC countries are over the hill, in terms of returns on hot-money investments, and it's all about the MINT group now, where Nigeria is the N. I'm loving it (with due caution of course.)
The private-equity wizards at the conference are excited about Africa’s prospects over the next decade. By 2050 [NIGERIA] will have a population the size of America’s. If it
can make all those people more productive, Nigeria will be a “big, big
economy”. How might it achieve this? The conditions that set the stage
for faster growth are well known: sober monetary and fiscal policy;
protection of property rights; education; openness to trade and
technology. The search for the perfect policy mix is not what matters; the trick is to “focus on it”. Source: Africa's Economic Prospects
I love @cc_Hub , aka the co-creation hub in Lagos. I urge everyone to visit who thinks creating through IT is cool and wants to see it in action (or join the action.) This is Yaba as a tech neighbourhood.
