We all like to get badges, goes back to our childhood, badges on birthday cards, badges for doing well at school, badges for learning a new skill, badges for belonging to something.

I use a daily journal writing site called and they give out badges for various achievements, and like being a kid again, I want the next badge. I have accumulated a fair few over the last 2 years, but there is always the next one and I want it.

If you want something done by others or if you want to get something achieved, then start handing out badges. We like physical recognition, something tangible that we can show others.

Simple rewards always outperform complex strategies.

It’s all about the badges.
