Just stumbled across this fascinating TED talk from Dan Pink. It's worth watching in its entirety, but the point is that while science has proven over and over that intrinsic motivators (living up to your full potential) are far better than extrinsic motivators (more money) for many tasks.
This squares perfectly with what some of the world's top project management gurus have told me over the past few years. It's not enough to lure qualified project team members with money -- you have to find out what makes them tick.
