Daniel Pink on Motivation

To achieve engagement and therefore motivation, says Pink, the research is there to prove that three vital elements are required:
  • Autonomy – the desire to be self directed
  • Mastery – the urge to get better at what we’re doing
  • Purpose – to be engaged in tasks that have purpose and meaning
