[C]ultivated risk-taking represents an ‘experiment with trust’ (in the sense of basic trust) which consequently has implications for an individual’s self-identity. (…) In cultivated risk-taking, the encounter with danger and its resolution are bound up in the same activity, whereas in other consequential settings the payoff of chosen strategies may not be seen for years afterwards.
For a while in my teens, I was sure I had it. It was about getting to heaven. If heaven existed and lasted forever, then a mere lifetime spent scrupulously following orders was a small investment for an infinite payoff. One day, though, I realized I was no longer a believer, and realizing that, I couldn’t go back.
Try not to be concerned with it. It’s a spiritual thing. Don’t look for the results, don’t live in the payoff. Live in the moment which is a spiritual principle. Live in the moment and let the results take care of themselves. It’s in the hands of God. The rest is all ego. And I have learned, over the years, it’s got nothing to do with me. As my life is none of my business.
If I offered you a thousand dollars to take off your shoes, you’d very likely accept–and then I could triumphantly announce that ‘rewards work.’ But as with punishments, they can never help someone develop a *commitment* to a task or action, a reason to keep doing it when there’s no longer a payoff.
If the ad is bad people get turned off. That’s 125 million potential viewers, so you just killed reach. But there’s also a big potential payoff. I think it does pay off because you get a lot of traffic, a lot of free public relations(in media stories). It helps position themselves for the next round of financing.
It is a little out of touch to presume that someone wants to follow your every observation and insight over the course of hundreds of pages without any sort of payoff. That’s why writing isn’t a one-way street. You have to give something back: an interesting plot, a surprise, a laugh, a moment of tenderness, a mystery for the reader to piece together.
The only place where you can really surprise or shock the reader, or make someone laugh, is on the lower righthand corner – the very last panel – so as you turn the page, the payoff is in the upper lefthand panel. To pace every story so that there’s a setup and a payoff at the page turn was a huge challenge; it’s a part of the medium and you really have to learn what can be done in the medium.
The best pay off in the world is when someone comes up to you and says, ‘your music has helped me with some pretty rough times through life. I don’t know if I would still be here if it was for your music whether it be country music or heavy metal has done for me.’ That’s ultimately the biggest payoff for me. I hear it from young kids to military guys and military women to older folks.
Economic policies absorb almost the entire attention of government, and at the same time become ever more impotent. The simplest things, which only fifty years ago one could do without difficulty, cannot get done any more. The richer a society, the more impossible it become to do worthwhile things without immediate payoff.
If your goal is to make money, becoming an entrepreneur is a sucker’s bet. Sure, some entrepreneurs make a lot of money, but if you calculate the amount of stress-inducing work and time it takes and multiply that by the low likelihood of success and eventual payoff, it is not a great way to get rich.
Government employees move up the ladder through educational credentials rather than merit. People are given jobs and promotions based on seniority, race and gender rather than ability or talent. Such a system often overlooks the deserving and rewards the incompetent. There is no payoff for achievement.
