We love succeeding. Titles, pay, office location, parking spaces, etc… all these are external motivators.
We love it.
Peak performance feels great doesn’t it?
External motivation is what we are taught to use to perform at high levels.
But what happens when we have no external motivators? No deadlines, no campaign, no cheerleaders, no cause.
Dangerous isn’t it?
Or maybe, deep down, the motivation is really the solace we get from doing work that matters to others.
