On Keeping People

We often use rules and regulations to keep people in line, thinking that by setting up a list of requirements, people will conform, feel like they've done a lot to be a part of our group or team, and never want to leave. 

But what if instead of providing rules, we provided reason? What if instead of trying to fence people in, we gave them a reason to stay with what we're doing, something that compels them to work hard for the sheer joy of what we're trying to accomplish?  

Instead of making it hard to leave, we need to make it fun to stay.
