And finally...The puzzle of motivation

“No carrots and rewards work as well as the following aspects for internal motivation:

Outonomy - the urge to direct our own lives.

Mastery - the desire to get better and better at something that matters.

Purpose - a yearning to do in the service of something larger than yourself.

People do things if they like it, if it is interesting, if it matters, and if it is important” (email, 19 May 2016)
