Someone sent me this link recently and when I first opened it I realized I had already seen it a few years ago. Normally, when this happens I quickly close my browser (no point in spending 10 minutes watching something you've already seen). However, I just couldn't bring myself to close my browser. The information in this short video is just as fascinating to me today as it was the first time I watched it years ago.
Ever since I was in graduate school I have been fascinated by what motivates people. I have always believed that the motivation of people is a lot more complicated than most people tend to believe. Mostly I knew this to be true (even prior to graduate school) because I didn't seem to be motivated by the same things that motivated most of my peers.
Have I peeked your interest yet? Check out this video: The Surprising Science of Motivation.
I'm curious...what do you think is the MOST shocking research result from this video? Or maybe just something that surprised you or that you were not aware of before?
