This month I thought I would pass on a TED Talk: What Makes Us Feel Good About Our Work?  The talk is by Dan Ariely, a Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University.  Ariely puts forth a case that people are motivated at work for a variety of complex reasons.  He says, “When we think of labor, we usually think about motivation and payment as the same thing, but the reality is that we should probably add all kinds of things to it:  meaning, creation, challenges, ownership, identity, pride, etc.” Check out the 20 minute video that provides some interesting implications for what makes us feel good about our work.
