Win or Lose, it's all the same

Congrats to the Canadian Women's hockey team in Torino, winners of Olympic gold!

A friend passed on this insight from sports psychologist Peter Jensen, who works with the Canadian women's team. In hockey, says Jensen, motivation is simple:

"It's, 'If we win, let's go for a beer. If we lose, let's go for a beer.'"

Next time HR tries to overcomplicate things, keep this in mind.

Thanks to Jeff for this one.
