The puzzle of motivation | Dan Pink

http://www.ted.com Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don’t: Traditional rewards aren’t always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories — and maybe, a way forward.

Video Summary:
Somewhere between watching a motivational video (very ineffective), or someone kicking your butt, lies the vast wasteland of hoped-for outcomes. Self-motivation is often a problematic victim of vague, wimpy goals; lack of sufficient visualization; or failing to reinforce the ratchets in your achievement.

If you’re constantly struggling to stay motivated, it may be that you have the wrong goals, or your life has the wrong purpose. If you’re trying to motivate yourself to accomplish things that don’t embrace your passion, you’ll never get far. If you’re passionless about where you’re headed, you need to pick a new direction. Examine your higher self and what your true, passionate life purpose really is.

Once your direction is aligned with your life purpose, visualize your vivid, specific, and ambitious goals for your life — the bigger the better. You need a detailed map before you can get anywhere. Picture your vision in your mind and on paper to make it more real.

Now build your vision deep into your daily life. Review it daily, post it prominently, journal about it, check in with a mentor daily — whatever it takes to keep you focused on your vision.

On Monday, May 25, 2009 I had the pleasure of watching my boyfriend cross the finish line for the LA Marathon. It was an amazing event. Minus of course some misdirection and rerouting – all in all it was a pretty smooth event. It was nice and overcast all morning; perfect weather for a marathon in Los Angeles. I can’t tell you what it’s like to train for an event like this or even run it, well maybe not yet. What I can tell you is how motivating and inspiring it is just being there.

We stayed the night in a historic hotel downtown. I think it might be haunted. That’s a whole other story, but some other time. We had to stay since the race began at seven am. The wake up call was set for five. Excited we sprang from bed turned on the news and got ready as fast as possible. (Plus I just wanted to get out of that hotel.) Parking was close and easy. Next stop just a little more coffee and off to the start line. There was energy in the air you could almost taste it. Or maybe that was the remnants of the bad coffee we made in the hotel. People were bustling about early in the closed off streets of downtown Los Angeles.

Finally, we hit the gate- only runners beyond this point. I give him a kiss and wish him luck. It will be about four hours before I see him at the finish line. I head off to find my spot. This is where all the redirection and crowd dodging begins. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement. People are smiling and I can’t help but smile too. People have signs cheering on friends and loved ones. There are people in costume. There are groups with t-shirts made just for this occasion. I make my way to the start or somewhere close to the starting line.

I nestle in under a television camera up on a boom. The race begins and the enthusiasm is unleashed. Now I have a burst of energy. I decide it’s time to find my spot at the finish line. I know the race just started but I am a short girl and I need to make my claim quick. I have my own strategy to be able to see the finish and then make my way to the designated locations to meet the runners. My marathon begins.

It takes me a little time to find just the right spot but I have plenty of that. While I wait to see him cross the finish line I witness several amazing finishes. Of course the winner who finished at two hours and eight minutes. Next there was one of the wheel chair racers whose modified bike was apparently not working. Someone towed his bike along side of him while he used his walker to cross the finish line. The crowd roared as he made his way cross the line. The closer he came the louder we got. It was incredibly inspiring and touching.

Next I saw a young boy, my guess he was 11, but he finished the marathon. I saw man carrying a drink tray like a server as well as a Spartan, or a man in a Spartan costume wrap up the race. Some people still had amazing amounts of energy to sprint to the finish in hopes to beat the runner next to them. While others were fueled by sheer determination; like the man I saw crawling towards the finish. Another runner came back to help the man up and complete the marathon. I then saw my boyfriend cross the finish! Of course I was the loudest person there for that moment. Then I was off to swoop him up and drive us home.

As we got to the car we shared our inspiring moments from the perspective of runner and spectator. It was incredible. I was so glad that I was able to be there for him and witness such an amazing event as a marathon. I am definitely inspired. Not necessarily to run a marathon but to action without a doubt. The people I witnessed crossing the finish gave me a glimpse of the endless possibilities in life. Now what I do with that is up to me.

One of the hardest things about exercising is trying to find the motivation to get started and trying to stay on track with your exercise program. You are the only one who can find this motivation and you have to make up your mind that you are going to do this and put aside all of the stumbling blocks that you can think of that will prevent you from reaching your exercise and weight loss goals.

The first thing that you need to realize is that it is a fact that you have to exercise to stay healthy. You cannot lose weight and remain healthy just by sitting around. There is no diet or pill that can take the place of being active. The sooner that you realize this, the better off you are going to be.

The good news is that nowadays, there are plenty of choices available for exercise and you do not have to spend hours of your time or be at a gym to reap the benefits of exercise. You can create your own exercise program and this should help you to get up and get moving.

You need to understand that your lifestyle contributes to your lack of exercise. In the good old days, people mowed their lawns by hand, washed their own dishes, and walked to and from school because they had to. Times have changed and now we all have modern day luxuries like dishwashers, computers, TVs, cell phones which can all effect our health if we let them. These things are all useful in our lives, but we cannot let them completely control us. You need to balance things in your life in order to make positive changes in your lifestyle.

Exercise must mean something to you. It is not always a good idea to focus on the end result of exercise. The main reasons why most people exercise is to get that perfect body that they have always wanted and to lose that set weight loss goal. The problem is that many times people lose their motivation along the way because this is something that does not happen overnight. You workouts need to have value each and every day and mean something to you.

There are other reasons why people choose to exercise such as relieving stress and keeping their energy levels up. Others exercise to have special time to themselves. It is up to you to find your own value in exercise and once you discover it, you will find your motivation to do it.

The good news is that you do not have to go to a gym or health club or use fancy expensive machines in order to start your exercise program. You can create your own and exercise at home if you wish. A simple way to get great exercise is to take walks each and every day and try making some extra trips to the mall to increase your walking and have fun at the same time.

The main thing about exercise is to try to find something that you enjoy doing and do your best to stick to it and your body will enjoy the benefits for a long time to come.

“Motivation is an inside job.” I am sure you have heard that said many times. It really is a true saying. The keys to being motivated lie within your own mind. It is not other people pumping you up that is going to give you lasting motivation. Use these three keys to maintain high levels of motivation over long periods of time:

1-Get a big dream. To stay motivated you need to have a dream that matters greatly to you. When you possess a big dream you will be compelled to do the work in order to make it a reality in your life. It is easier to get fired up when you know you are working for something that matters a great deal to you. It is up to you to determine what that is. Take some time to reflect on what it is that you would like to have. Figure out what makes you happy.  Determine what makes you excited when you think of the mere possibilities of obtaining it. Once you know what that dream is then you have a reason to stay motivated all the time.

2-Keep your dream in front of you. Focus in on your dream and maintain excitement about obtaining it at all times. Whether it is an actual photograph or it is a picture that you hold in your mind, keep that picture in front of you always. Think about it. Look at it. Imagine it. Act as if you already have your dream. What does it feel like? You need to harness those emotions. Those good feelings will propel you towards your dream. You will have no problem summoning motivation once you have a clear picture of what you want constantly on your mind.

3-Consistently do the work. Sometimes you may feel disappointments. Or you may get frustrated. You may even feel like it is taking too long to get the results that you want. I have an remedy for each of the emotional barriers that you are sure to face. I prescribe a four letter word spelled W-O-R-K. Work is actually therapeutic. When you do the proper work consistently it insulates you from procrastination, regret and hesitation. As you do the work you develop new skills. You also gain confidence. You develop a knowing within that you will have what you want because you are paying the price to get it.

Most of the time I’m pretty motivated and enthusiastic about work. What’s not to be excited about? I get to share my passion for leadership with people who truly benefit from my work. I make my own hours and often work with two cute dogs at my feet. I realize, however, that not everyone enjoys high levels of motivation every day.Many of you replied to our recent survey and said that employee motivation is a major challenge. You asked: “What can we do to help employees bring passion and energy to work, even if it’s one of those days (or weeks) when they just don’t feel like working.” This month and in the months to come I’ll be sharing tips and ideas for creating a motivating work environment.

An article in the March 2008 HRMagazine shared some interesting research about employee motivation and its link to brain function. It said that if a manager shows interest in employees, supports them, and praises them genuinely, the manager is essentially “squirting” serotonin into the employee’s brain. Serotonin is the chemical that makes us feel good. It opens our minds to new ideas and creates a desire to support others. Serotonin leads to enhanced levels of motivation.

Likewise, a manager can inadvertently “squirt” the chemical cortisol into an employee’s brain by treating the employee unfairly or by diminishing the efforts of the employee. In turn, the cortisol leads the employee to shut down any willingness to help or to be open to new ideas. It’s a demotivator.Interesting stuff, huh?This brain research leads us to ask, “How can a manager consistently “squirt” motivation into an employee? Here are a few thoughts:

1. Add some fun and variety into the daily routine. When was the last time you and your staff laughed and played together? Throw around a ball, start an American Idol pool (I knew David Cook would win!), begin each staff meeting with a “fun fact.” Anything that breaks the monotony and adds energy will squirt a little serotonin around.

2. Provide employees with input and choices. The more we feel we can control in our world, the more satisfied we are. As a manager, what can you let go of? How can you give a little more independence to your staff? When they feel in control, they’ll be more motivated to perform.

3. Develop goals and challenges for all employees. No matter the job, employees should know what they are working to achieve and what they need to do to get there. A clear path is a certain way to squirt some serotonin around.

In the coming months we’ll explore more ideas for creating a motivating work environment. We’ll also explore how to avoid squirting cortisol into employee’s brains, demotivating them when we might not even realize we are doing it. As a manager, it’s important to know that just a little “squirt” can make a difference in another person’s life. Make it a good one.
