Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose
To be clear, I have no financial interest in the success of author, Daniel Pink, but I do want to discuss a way to look at motivation in the work place and at school.

Things you don’t need to tell the cops when you are in a public setting
Things you don’t need to tell the cops when you are in a public setting- 1. You do not need to tell us-“I didn’t do it.” We probably don’t think that you did do it. We probably don’t know what “it” is. We assume most people we run into during the average day didn’t do […]
