An Interesting Opinion

"...No man can be fully efficient if he expects praise or appreciation for what he does. The uncertainty of this reward, as experienced, leads to modificatioin of one's actions to increase its probability...If a man permits himself the purpose of securing admiration, he tends to make that purpose primary and the doing of his proper work secondary. This costs human lives..." Manual, Insterstellar Medical Services Pp.17-18;
