I've got some teenagers in the house I'd like to prepare them better for real life by teaching them to be self-motivated.
In his podcast (numbers 406 and 407) Paul talks about a movie, short rendition (as best as I can recall) is: There's this vaudville/playhouse place operating forever on the verge of financial ruin, and they have this guy - Mr Slappy - whose job it is to walk around and physically, oftentimes violently, force people to perform whether they "feel like it" or not.
The point of the podcast being that nobody likes Mr Slappy, nobody wants to be Mr Slappy, yet some people won't do diddly-nothing without a Mr Slappy physically standing over them and making them do what they need to do.
That's the very message I want to get across to my teens!
So, first off, does anybody know what that movie could be?
Also, I'm wide open to other ideas and resources that could drive this idea home!
If you don't "know enough"... try anyway! (Cuz that's how you learn.)
