What Really Motivates Us

Discovery of the Day: Persistence Unlimited, a great blog on goal-setting, led me to a fascinating video on What Really Motivates Us from RSA.

Autonomy-the desire to be self-directed.

Mastery-the urge to get better at stuff. We enjoy the challenge of learning and creating things, and want to contribute.

Purpose-the desire to add value to life with our talents.

I write about goal setting, time management, and other skills for personal development, happiness, and a productive life. My fascination with phonics and the pursuit of literacy is shared at www.phonicspow.com. I enjoy reading books and watching movies based on the screen and page method.
