Pursue an activity for its own sake, and not for rewards or threats.
Using an external motivational tool (i.e., a reward or threat) has its drawbacks. There is the possibility of the reward or threat disappearing, not being motivating enough, or even placing too much pressure on you to complete the task. When you pursue an activity for its own sake and not for rewards or threats, you are more likely to complete it without getting stressed.
