Fun make you perform better than rewards

A cool TED video that confirm something I though already: If you work for the money, for the reward to get bought or go IPO rather than for the fun, you take the risk to shut down your creativity.

What the talk doesn't state is "why with higher rewards people do poorly?". The obvious reason is :
– the pressure : because you are so stressed to be best, to be first, you dont take time to explore.
– You have to be ready to make mistake in order to be creative. But if you go for the reward, you rarely are ready to afford mistake.

Also check this video on how education kills creativity (the speaker is hilarious!)
