Found this video this morning: Very interesting. Can't comment on the accuracy of the findings, but it makes me think about what it is that motivates me, and the people I know. Personally, I find that the ability to work my own hours, in my own location (at home, in the Fortress of Solitude), is much more of a motivator than I ever thought it would be. Couple that with working with smart people, and there you have all the motivation I really need. FOCUS: Discuss what motivates you in work and life. ALT-FOCUS: Share a time when motivation went terribly wrong... or went very right.
