Watching the Food Channel right now. They are having a 'Chefs Challenge' on the USS John C. Stennis which is on a 7 day tiger cruise. Three teams of 5 Culinary Specialists making the best food they can with what is available on a carrier. The CSes get on ship training from the top chefs in the industry while on a cruise. The food looks awesome! Grilling on the flight deck while the pilots get to show their stuff for for the 1100 guests. The CSes are competing for an extra 4 days leave.
Sounds like excellent motivation to me.
