The video by Daniel Pink is a classic. Yet, we often operate against his appeal unconsciously or habitually.
Operating by intrinsic motivation seems more human like way of being rather than motivated by external rewards. Still, most of us feel the necessity of external rewards.
One of the reasons is that we somehow believe more rewards would give us better life. It's a liner way of thinking and it doesn't work that way. At some point, external rewards mean nothing. You can see it happen for people who are extremely rich.
I've been thinking these days about students who refuse going to school. They seem to be different from truants but something to do with intrinsic motivation. The number of these students seem to be increasing globally. The trend might be the start of the shift of motivation.
