Work fuel: what really motivates us

Seth Godin published once again a great article on work/life motivation.

  • Becoming a better version of yourself
  • Catastrophe (or the world as we know it will end)
  • Connection (because others will join in)
  • Creative itch (the voice inside of you wants to be expressed)
  • Dissatisfaction (because it’s not good enough as it is)
  • Engineer (because there’s a problem to be solved)
  • Generosity (because it’s a chance to contribute)
  • Possibility (because we can, and it’ll be neat to see how it works in the world)
  • Selection (to get in, win the prize, be chosen)
