This week I learnt something valuable: Success is a drug. And as a leader, your are the dealer.

Your job is to make the people in your team addicted. And the best way to make someone addicted is to give them the drug for free so they can feel what it is like.

Design the first goal so that the team will be successful without the sweaty hard work. This is how they feel the success.

And once they are addicted, you can make it more difficult to get the success they are craving for.

And this is how you end up with a team that is willing to give everything for just a small shot of success.
