If you offer a reward to someone for achieving a goal, you must be careful that you do not force people to concentrate more on the reward than the goal.  If you put the carrot in front of a donkey, it may miss the boulder, the wheel may fall off the cart and the goal will not be reached.

Rewards will serve far more if they help prod people to action rather than being the reason for action.
