At this point, I don’t even remember how I came upon this video. However, I am very glad that I did. This video does an impeccable job of telling and showing us what motivates people. This is not an easy subject to tackle on any level, despite it being easy to be “dumbed down” for convenience in non-motivated circles.
Among the things I am passionate about is motivation. The ability to motivate yourself first, and the ability to motivate others second. At this point in my life though, I have found that the two have a very symbiotic relationship. I am always looking for new ways to motivate myself and others. This video sheds insight into what works, and what doesn’t – BUT it goes on to tell you a little bit about why.
That being said, this video is just to fun to watch! The white board animation stuff it does is addicting to see. Check it out!
Beyond the motivation aspect, I especially love how this video parallels open source developers and development. Even though it doesn’t mention my beloved DotNetNuke®, the principles are the same.
If you don’t know yourself all that well, this may shed some light into how you think. I would say that I know myself much better than the average person, and this video really clicked for me.
