Let's be real, we all love pizza.
When we eat it, it motivates us to go to the gym, but did you know it's also a great motivator for work?
In Dan Ariely's new book Payoff: The Hidden Logic That Shapes Our Motivations, he discovers that pizza can actually increase productivity in employees.
Dan conducts a study involving some factory workers at Intel in Isreal. He split the employees up into three separate groups. He promised one group a voucher for pizza, the next group a cash bonus and the third group a compliment from their superior.
And among the three awards, guess which won? The pizza voucher, of course.
In fact, the workers that were promised the pizza continued to perform better all week.
Now if that doesn't motivate you, we don't know what will.
