It seems that monetary incentives do not inspire performance and productivity (when the job requires cognitive reasoning).
Instead, Pink mentions 3 factors that lead to better performance and personal satisfaction in the workplace:
- Autonomy - the desire to be self-directed
- Mastery - the urge to get better at stuff
- Purpose - the reason behind the work
I agree with Pink. This definitely resonates with my motivations at work and in life.
What do you think? Is he missing anything?
