There may be no more important aspect of career development and planning than maintaining motivation. Sure, identifying what you’re great at, nailing interview questions, etc. are key. But without motivation, how are you even going to do those things well?!
Last year I linked to a video interpretation of a speech Daniel Pink gave regarding the science behind motivation. This morning I came across his full-length speech that he delivered at TED, and I think it’s definitely worth everyone’s time – especially on a Friday afternoon, when we may not be feeling so motivated!!!
