The surprising truth about what motivates us

H/tip Barry Ritholtz at The Big Picture

RSA Animate – Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us

This lively RSA Animate, adapted from Dan Pink’s talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace. (www.theRSA.org)
