Monday Motivation: Daniel Pink on Motivation

This is a little different video. Won't get you pumped up to go workout, but may help you understand motivation, extrinsic and intrinsic much better. In the pursuit of health and performance , if one can switch from carrots and sticks to autonomy, mastery and purpose, excellence will follow.

Carrot and stick rewards do have their place though. Finish this set, get to the top of this hill, 5 more pounds. Simplistic tasks in the moment.

Daniel Pink has also written a few books I have enjoyed if you like his video and want to see what else he has to say.
