What makes us feel good about our work?

Back in the routine of video Friday. This time around, we have Dan Ariely giving a TED talk on what motivates knowledge workers.

When we think about labor, we usually think about motivation and payment as the same thing, but the reality is we should probably add all kinds of things to it: Meaning, Creation, Challenge, Ownership, Identity, Pride, etc.

If you’re interested in this kind of thing, Drive by Dan Pink is a great follow-up read.
