It’s easy to do the same thing every day. But if you do, you get the same result. Is that what you want?
What’s one big difference between people who are happy and everyone else? In this TED video, Adam Leipzig talks about how the happiest, most successful people in any field always focus on the people they serve rather than how they are served themselves. Watch this video and see how outward facing you are.
I wasn’t very motivated to work on something this morning, in fact I’ve been procrastinating on it for a week. You’ve done it, we’ve all done it. It reminded me of what Dan Pink had to say about motivation in this video, one of my favorite TED videos.
Most business executives think people are motivated by money and tangible rewards. As Dan tells us, there are greater sources of intrinsic motivation, one being the feeling of purpose, which he defines as the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves. That’s what ThinkGood is creating, folks.
Watch the video to learn about all three intrinsic motivators and let us know what you think.
