Ultimate Motivation

Motivation. In a pin.

Back when I was in second grade in Mrs. Gersten’s class at Westpark elementary, we would have these Book Reports that we could make.  We would have to read a book, then write a report about the book with illustrations and whatnot.   At the end of the report, you would get one of these “Book It” pins. Not everyone got the pin of course, you would have to have a good report.  If you got one of these pins, you would get a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut.  To a kid, that’s like winning the lottery.  To me, the pin was the ultimate motivation.
