The puzzle of motivation

This is one of my favorite TED Talks.  This particular talk is presented by Dan Pink, and it will surely make you think.  Dan speaks about the power of intrinsic motivation, which is motivation based on taking pleasure in an activity rather than working toward an external reward.  He focuses on three key words – autonomy, mastery, and purpose – to help illustrate his argument.  This is an extremely insightful video and will hopefully give you some ideas on how to motivate others and yourself more effectively.
