Check out this interesting video on the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace. I loved the illustrations of RSAnimation to the original talk given by Dan Pink.

So, what motivates us?

Hint: it’s not just the money… three factors lead to better performance and personal satisfaction:
1) Autonomy – the desire to be self directed (so many companies kill this with over-management)
2) Mastery – the urge to get better at stuff (“fun” is satisfying)
3) Purpose – be a purpose maximizer, not just a profit maximizer.

Watch the video, it’s worth your time.
