Self-Determination Theory
« on: April 11, 2017, 10:57:38 AM »
For a moment, think about how motivated you've felt at various times over the last few years. At some points, your motivation may have been high – if so, you will have felt engaged, energized, and filled with purpose. At other points, you probably felt listless, disengaged, or apathetic, and it may have been a real struggle to keep things moving forward.

Many of us recognize instinctively that motivation comes and goes. But what causes these highs and lows? Why are some people consistently engaged and motivated, while others feel demoralized and powerless? And why can't we be motivated and engaged all of the time, so that we can consistently produce our best work?
