Daniel Pink has been making the rounds lately promoting his new book Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us. One of his marketing pieces is a good, short video about two simple questions. Here they are:
- What simple sentence do you want people to use to describe your life?
- What did you do today to make yourself a better person?
I like the thinking here and believe it is important to continually assess personal goals along with lifelong personal improvement. My recommendation is to evaluate these questions in the context of your life and constantly revisit them.
Bonus: Here’s a video of Daniel Pink’s TED talk on motivation.
