The Essence of Motivation
Motivation is more sustainable when it comes from within - from people's heart and mind. Intrinsic Motivation gives us three simple handles:
1. Purpose - awaken the passion and show the long-term direction; let's aim at something that we care about
2. Autonomy - allow the people to use their experience and brains to decide how we can achieve this common purpose
3. Mastery - aspirations to become an expert is a third driver that makes people excited
