Keep going back to this!
I’ve just finished reading Drive, Dan Pink’s thought-provoking and inspiring book on motivation and what “drives” us. Like A Whole New Mind, his ideas are ones that can help everyone think differently about how we work and live. In Drive, he explores the truth behind what motivates us, and says that for the 21st century we have to upgrade to “autonomy, mastery and purpose.” Autonomy, mastery and purpose are the three elements, the three ingredients that will light the fire under us and motivate us ahead. If we’ve got these three elements as part of our work we’ll feel satisfied and more connected to what we do.
Autonomy is the desire to direct our own lives.
Mastery is the urge to get better and better at something that matters.
Purpose is the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves.
