There are many varying perspectives on what fuels someone’s motivation.
From applying internal vs. external reward systems, to identifying a person’s personal drivers, to looking for the latest science behind how people make decisions, it’s as clear as mud.
But one framework that’s resonated with us comes from Daniel Pink in his book Drive. It discusses three spheres: autonomy, mastery, and purpose, or as the Power Girls call it, #AMP.
In this eppie, we dig into the “A,” and define what the concept of autonomy really means, and how you can find ways to align your role and career to your specific autonomous aspirations – say that one three times fast.
This is the first part of a three-eppie series focused on motivation, using a framework from the book, Drive by Daniel Pink. Mastery and Purpose are covered in separate eppies.
