Quote: "I'm slowly becoming a convert to the principle that you can't motivate people to do things, you can only demotivate them. The primary job of the manager is not to empower but to remove obstacles." -Scott Adams
Thought: He's got a point. It is easier to demotivate than to motivate, to the point that some might find the one impossible. You have a responsibility to do both things, though. People can be motivated and encouraged, and they can be demotivated. I think the best motivation is to remove the obstacles and let people follow God to the fullest of their ability. But Scott Adams would disagree, giving his tendency towards atheism.
