Intrinsic Motivation – Drive

I talk quite a bit about the concept of intrinsic motivation in my presentations and workshops. Intrinsic motivation describes our satisfaction in doing something simply for the sake of doing it.  Think of playing an instrument, solving a puzzle or painting a picture.  The activity is a reward in itself.  Daniel Pink’s “Drive” is great book that discusses this concept.  If you haven’t read it yet, checkout the video below.
