  2. I can't motivate myself to keep doing assignment due in 7 days, so I'm procrastinating by watching video about motivation

  3. once you offer a reward the goal goes from complete this task to do the task and get the reward, the focus is on the reward not the task

  4. I've mapped the three Drive factors onto the kind of stories we need to tell about our work IF we want to motivate others:

  8. This concept also works with raising children, many parents use fear and punishment and sometimes reward to get their children to do what they want, I used encouragement, tell a person how good they are at something and watch them do their best work for the recognition you gave them, true fact

  9. I don't know. You still can't remove the fact that many people aren't making a living wage & cannot support their families. It's cold comfort working your a** off, the motivator being to take care of your family, and you still can't make ends meet.

  10. I think free food is a good motivator. On our campus, the speaker events always offer a free spread of lovely food, and the information tables around campus always have free candy, water and all kinds of treats that reward us for giving them our attention. I'm so conditioned by the reward system that if there are no rewards I look elsewhere.

  11. He missed the system of motivation in the mind by using surface answers again: Autonomy, Mastery, Purpose. Each of these has a positive emotional state that neutralizes the negative sense in the mind: The urge to direct our life, the desire to get better, and be connected to something bigger than ourselves. These are all surface answers and he missed the system of motivation that lurks in the background of the mind. The greater negative motivated towards the specific neutralizing positive. This is the system of motivation that moves all parts of the human. This is the pattern in us all not surface answers, as these are only subjective illusions that we deem as positives. The System of Motivation by Reinhardt-read it.
