After hearing a speech on motivating employees, the owner of a large business posted signs that read "Do It Now" on the wall of every department at the office. It was impossible for the employees not to see them all through the day.
A friend dropped by a week later. Seeing the signs, he asked if the scheme really worked. "Well," says the business owner, "not exactly the way I thought it would. The cashier ran off with $20,000, the office manager eloped with my secretary and the rest of the employees asked for raises!"
