All too often we get caught up in the habit of checking boxes on a list when it comes to Scouting. Advancing to the next rank is part of Scouting, yes, but it's not the whole package. Scouting is a way of life; it's the way we conduct ourselves each day, keeping fit, helping others, staying true to the Scout Law. Next time when you ask yourself if you "need" to do something for a requirement, take a step back and ask yourself if you can help someone else advance. You might be surprised what happens next...
Great quote. Can I steal it?

Can I pin it to the forehead of the parent that's paying his son for each rank advancement? Talk about a SM nightmare.
If the cases I'm familiar with are the norm, it will backfire on the parents. In one case the Life Scout only needed to do his service project as he had everything else done, and would have enough time to earn several palms. Incentive was driver's license and car.
