Intrinsic Motivation

I will be trying a little experiment in motivation next week by offering $5000 of value, about 90 paintings as free downloads for those who join my https://www.patreon.com/joelbowers page and support me and my artwork at the $5/month level or more.

Most people are less motivated by value and punishment rewards than by their desire to do something interesting and in the public good. I would like to recommend that becoming my patron is something you can do to help the world in general enjoy more art as well as show appreciation for my efforts.

I am reading Daniel Pinks book, “Drive” which shows that unlike most corporations and people believe, we are more productive and likely to respond to requests when we find it interesting rather than rewarding. I don’t expect offering a big reward will grow my audience much.
